At ReWork Skin Clinic, our laser strengthens the collagen and elastin that breaks down when a stretch mark is formed. Our course of treatments increases and thickens these bundles of collagen and elastin improving the appearance of the stretch mark. Our laser is a non-ablative system that delivers the best results with little to no recovery period and is helped by our Cryo-cooling system to give you the best comfort whilst the treatment is carried out.
Stretch marks are some of the UK’s most common aesthetic concerns, along with general signs of ageing, such as fine lines and wrinkles. People worldwide spend billions every year on skin care products that help reduce the effects of these conditions, however, fractional laser is the quickest and most effective way to tackle the conditions.

How it works
The dual technology enables us to treat both purple/red and white stretch marks as well as treating any textural irregularities.
The laser delivers impulses of energy that target and heat stretch marks while preserving the surrounding skin. This thermal action stimulates the production of collagen and elastin by the body, which will then improve the texture and colour of the skin to remove stretch marks
White or silver stretch marks are the least responsive to treatment as so much of the collagen and elastin has previously broken down. However with a course of our treatments, you will see a significant improvement, but it is not likely to remove them entirely. Our Cryo-cooling system will cool the skin making sure the treatment is comfortable.
Frequently asked questions
How long does the treatment take?
Depending on the size and age of the stretch marks, treatments can take about 15 mins. We recommend 4-6 treatments, 6 weeks apart.
What should I expect after treatment?
With the advanced Laser & IPL system it means we can perform multiple treatments with minimal side effects and little downtime. Post-treatment, you may be red around the treated area for several days and skin can feel rough. We advise you to ice the area and to moisturise whilst the skin is healing.
When will I see results?
Collagen production following the treatment can take approximately two weeks which is when you will begin to see results. You will see an improvement in texture and brightness and general appearance of the skin as well.
What will it feel like?
A warm, heating sensation is felt during treatment with some mild stinging. After treatment the skin can be quite hot but with our Cryo-cooling system you can expect to be comfortable.
