Can I use the IPL procedure for my Stretch Marks?
I was looking into the IPL process and was wondering if it could be used on stretch marks. Would it change the average cost if it was used for a different purpose? Any additional information would be great. Summer is coming fast so what I would love hear back quick.
If the stretch marks are red then IPL can decrease the redness, but won't help the scar texture. I find the Fractional 1540 can help improve stretch marks somewhat. The stretch marks will never be gone. This takes lots of sessions and usually around a week of post laser redness.
So, not too many of my patients continue with necessary treatments because of the expense and downtime.
for big events I will recommend body make-up.
