Stretch Marks Treatment

Reduce the Appearance of Stretch Marks with Non-Invasive Technology

At the Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre, we understand how embarrassing and bothersome stretch marks can be. Our experienced team of medical professionals is here to help you reduce the appearance of your stretch marks and reclaim the confidence in your skin with our top-of-the-line treatments.

At Albany, we offer a number of treatments for stretch marks designed to improve their appearance, including laser therapy, microneedling, and topical creams. Each treatment has its own set of benefits and potential side effects, which our medical professionals can discuss with you during your consultation.

Laser Therapy

This is one of the most popular treatments for stretch marks as it’s been clinically proven to reduce their appearance. During laser therapy, lasers are applied directly to your skin in order to penetrate deeply into the affected area and stimulate collagen production within the deeper layers of the skin. This helps restore elasticity, firmness, and smoothness while reducing the visibility of stretch marks. Benefits of laser therapies include improved texture and tone, reduced scarring, minimized pore size, increased collagen production for firmer skin, and reduce wrinkles and fine lines – all with little to no downtime! Possible side effects may include mild redness or swelling, which typically dissipate within a few hours after treatment. Laser treatments effectively reduce the colour, size, and appearance of stretch marks. The laser light stimulates collagen production, which helps to smooth out the skin’s surface. This can significantly reduce the visibility of stretch marks, leaving you with smoother-looking skin. Treatment is safe for all skin types, and no downtime is required. Multiple sessions may be required for optimal results depending on the severity of your stretch marks.


It is another popular treatment used by our medical professionals at Albany Cosmetic and Laser Centre to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. During microneedling treatments, tiny needles are used to create hundreds or even thousands of micro punctures in the surface layer of your skin in order to encourage your body’s natural healing process through collagen production. The procedure helps break down existing scar tissue while stimulating new cell growth for firmer skin that is smoother in texture and tone. Benefits include smoothing out uneven areas on the skin caused by deep scars or stretch marks as well as improving circulation, which leads to better oxygenation giving you a more youthful glow! Common side effects may include itching or peeling immediately after treatment as well as redness that can last a few days depending on individual sensitivity levels but will typically fade away quite quickly without leaving any long-term damage behind.

These are also available at our centre for those looking for an alternative to laser therapy or microneedling treatments. Topical creams work by providing hydration directly into cracks along the skin’s surface where scar tissue has formed due to stretching caused by pregnancy or weight gain/loss etc.; this helps keep moisture levels high while targeting inflammation associated with stretch marks resulting in less visible scars overtime when used consistently over several weeks or months as advised by one of our medical professionals during your initial consultation appointment. Benefits include improved texture & tone accompanied by lightening pigmentation due to discoloration resulting from environmental factors such as sun exposure or aging leading up to smoother-looking stretched areas on the surface level, while possible side effects such as irritation & burning sensation can arise in sensitive individuals, but these should subside relatively quickly when using topical creams adhering strictly to instructions provided by either one’s doctor/nurse practitioner during an initial appointment at Albany Cosmetic & Laser Centre.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are an effective way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks by exfoliating dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and promoting new cell growth and collagen production. This helps restore elasticity in your skin which gives it a smoother texture and tone over time. Chemical peels come in varying strengths depending on how deep they penetrate into the epidermal layer so our experts will recommend one that’s best suited for your specific needs. Results with chemical peels can sometimes be seen after just one session, but multiple sessions may be necessary for more pronounced results.


Microdermabrasion works by exfoliating away old skin cells on the surface while also stimulating blood circulation in order to promote new cell development beneath it. This process helps fade away existing stretch marks while also boosting collagen production which improves elasticity in your skin over time. It’s a safe treatment with no downtime required after each session, and multiple treatments may be recommended depending on how severe your stretch marks are for optimal results.

Expected Results

It’s important to keep in mind that there’s no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to treating stretch marks since each patient has unique needs based on their own individual experience with them. Our trained professionals at Albany Cosmetic & Laser Centre take this into account when creating a custom treatment plan tailored specifically for you – addressing not only aesthetic concerns but also any underlying causes that could result in further damage or scarring down the road if left untreated for too long. With our specialized treatments such as laser therapy, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion – we can help you achieve smoother-looking skin free from visible signs of stretch marks while improving its overall condition along the way!

No matter which treatment you choose for treating pesky Stretch Marks at Albany Cosmetic & Laser Centre, rest assured that every single option comes equipped with satisfiable results delivered in quick time frames allowing you to achieve the desired outcome without having to wait long periods between each appointment, meaning that you won’t have to endure visible signs off Stretch Marks being present on visible parts of the body (such as abdomen area) any longer!!
