Stretch marks

Many different body shapes and sizes have stretch marks, and it is not purely down to weight gain or loss. They can develop at key stages of growth, for example during puberty and pregnancy, and also develop when there is a change in diet or exercise regime.


Stretch marks treatment

To improve the appearance of stretch marks, it's best to treat them when they are relatively new. Whilst fresh stretch marks will be easier to manage, mature stretch marks can also be treated. Older stretch marks usually require a more intense treatment, and may take more sessions to achieve results. Most areas of the body can be treated, with the most common areas being the stomach and thighs. 


During your consultation, we'll create a bespoke treatment plan to determine which treatment is right for you, whether that's skincare, laser resurfacing or a Pulsed Dye Laser treatment. So when cocoa butter or home remedies aren't doing the job, we can treat the area to make your stretch marks less noticeable.


Your stretch marks treatment will be provided by our highly trained team of aestheticians and nurses here at our London clinic

What causes stretch marks?

Stretch marks can be influenced by various factors, including cortisol levels and the adrenal glands. Cortisol, a hormone released by the adrenal glands, can contribute to the development of stretch marks. Excessive cortisol levels can effect the production of collagen and elastin, which are vital for maintaining the skin's elasticity. This can make the skin more prone to developing stretch marks.

Stretch marks can also be caused by pregnancy, weight gain, growth spurts, hormonal changes, or genetic predisposition.

A deep dive into our treatments for stretch marks

During your no obligation consultation, our specialists will create a stretch marks treatment plan for you. Our treatments include:


Skincare. We have a wide range of skincare treatments, featuring renowned brands like The Secret Skincare, Obagi, and iS Clinical. Our dedicated skincare experts will create a personalised skincare plan just for you, selecting prescription-based products that cater to your specific needs.

Secret PRO. Secret PRO is a remarkable skin resurfacing treatment that combines fractional CO2 laser resurfacing and radio frequency microneedling,  targeting concerns such as stretch marks. The intensity of the treatment is customised to suit your individual requirements, ensuring a tailored and effective experience. By targeting the skin's surface with the CO2 laser and heating the deeper dermal layer with radio frequency microneedling, this innovative approach stimulates natural healing and regeneration. The result is smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin with a more uniform appearance.

UltraClear. UltraClear is a skin resurfacing laser designed to address a wide range of concerns, including  stretch marks. Its innovative wavelength is engineered to minimise downtime and maximise patient comfort. It is the first resurfacing laser with FDA approval for all skin types and tones, ensuring inclusivity for everyone. With its unique "cold laser" technology, the risk of heat-induced side effects, especially for darker skin tones, is significantly reduced. Our experts can simultaneously target multiple concerns, using the lighter setting for sun-induced pigmentation and the deeper setting for skin texture issues like lines, wrinkles, and scars. The lighter settings often eliminate the need for topical anaesthesia, representing a major advancement in laser therapy.

Pulsed Dye Laser.  Pulsed Dye Laser, or V Beam, is an innovative device that emits long pulses of energy. This works wonders on the skin's top layer, the epidermis. Its versatility is astounding, allowing it to effectively address a spectrum of concerns, ranging from stretch marks to redness and beyond.


Laser resurfacing with the M22. Non-ablative skin resurfacing preserves the integrity of the skin while promoting collagen production and firming the underlying skin. This treatment is highly suitable for individuals seeking a gentler treatment option that requires minimal recovery time and eliminates the possibility of skin infections.

How many sessions will I need, and how far apart can I have them?

Most treatments for stretch marks will take 6-8 sessions, set 4-6 weeks apart. But this does depend on the treatment provided. At our London clinic, we house the largest collection of treatment options which it why a consultation is vital. This allows us to tailor our treatments to you.
