Can the CO2 DOT laser improve stretch marks?
I’m going to say a tentative yes on this one. While there isn’t much data available yet, different centers around the country are doing it and getting definite improvement in blending the stretch marks (really just a type of scar). If you decide to go ahead, remember it will take more than one treatment and it will never be "perfect." Realistic expectations are important. Good laser centers will always do consults first and give you estimates of what to expect based on your individual situation. What the laser CAN’T do, is tighten loose skin well. You may need to address that separately. Dr. I
