Stretch Mark Treatment
Stretch marks are most prominent in females, though can often appear on men also, often being caused as a consequence of puberty, excessive weight loss/weight gain or pregnancy. Once the skin has been stretched, it loses its elasticity leaving unattractive and self-esteem sapping scars behind!
All skin types are susceptible to them, with them varying in shape, size and colour and can often cause low self-esteem, especially during the Summer holiday season, when it comes to being at the beach or poolside.
At LINIA Skin Clinic, we provide stretch mark treatment that stimulates collagen, with a quick and easy process that will improve the appearance of your skin.

Our laser stretch mark removal procedure is suitable for all skin types, it only takes 3 to 5 treatments until your red or purple stretch marks are removed! Laser for stretch marks is used in the preliminary stages of treatment – it’s painless and consistent – helping create the appearance you’ve always wanted!
Side Effects of Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks
We are confident that our stretch mark laser removal treatment is very safe. You are unlikely to experience serious side effects. However, as with any medical procedure there is always a risk of some symptoms and side effects, even if they are mild.
Immediately after having the procedure, your skin is likely to be swollen and red. This is caused by the laser penetrating the skin and creating tiny holes in the different layers.
Some itching is also likely to occur due to the inflammation and you may even experience a burning sensation around the laser site.
In more serious circumstances you may suffer from blisters, but this is relatively rare.
Stretch Mark Treatment Prices
The cost of laser stretch mark removal treatment is quoted on an individual basis. It will depend on the severity of your stretch marks and how widespread the problem is and the results you are looking to achieve.
At your consultation appointment, one of our team will discuss your options and offer recommendations on how many sessions and how much laser treatment you need.
How Does Laser Stretch Mark Treatment Work?
Despite there being a variety of different lasers available in the industry – some better suited for the possible kinds of stretch marks you may have – they all work in the same way.
The laser is fired at the trouble spots and reaches down deep below the surface layer of skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. It works by sending a short pulse of energy to directly at the scar tissue. The scar tissue is then broken down and the cells are stimulated.
This cell stimulation aids in the production of new collagen which helps to create visibly smoother skin. This helps to minimise the look and feel of your stretch marks and start the bodies natural healing process.
If you’re struggling with your stretch marks, then you are very likely to benefit from our laser technology and boost your self-esteem.
How Effective is Laser Stretch Mark Treatment?

Derma Roller/Microneedling Side Effects
Like laser treatment, although derma roller and microneedling treatments are relatively safe, there is always the risk of some side effects.
The most common you are likely to experience is slight skin irritation once the treatment has been completed.
You are also likely to experience some redness around the treatment site. Additionally, there is a chance, even if it is not always common, that more serious side effects could occur, including:
