Striaes from pregnancy or Stretch marks
The happiest day of your life! You delivered your bundle of joy but now you have to face the striae from pregnancy. Not to worry! At Pua Manu Medspa we have several treatments that are very effective in alleviating the signs of stretch marks. It usually requires a series of treatments. A non-ablative laser, the 1540 nm XF laser by Icon has been recently FDA approved to treat this condition after extensive research. It can have minimum down time, some redness may occur which may last for 1 week. An ablative laser, Profractional by Sciton, can decrease the signs of the striae faster with a longer downtime of 10 days. Possibly neither treatment will prevent you for doing your daily activities.
