PressRelease) Dr. Ishoo’s innovative approach to treatment of stretch marks combines fractional ablative skin resurfacing to improve skin texture with sub-dermal application of the Smartlipo Triplex laser to tighten skin.
Marshfield, MA – Edwin Ishoo, MD, the founder and medical director of the Boston Cosmetic Surgery Center in the South Shore, Massachusetts area, has developed an innovative and effective treatment of stretch marks by using Smartlipo Triplex and Smart Skin- Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing. Combining extensive experience with advanced laser technology and convenient locations, Dr. Edwin Ishoo is able to provide remarkable results with minimal recovery time at an affordable price in a safe, comfortable outpatient setting.
Stretch Marks, clinically known as Striae are caused by tearing of the dermis layer of skin which are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or weight gain (e.g. pregnancy or muscle building). Dr. Edwin Ishoo states “Men and women can get stretch marks regardless of age, body type or habits on several areas of their bodies, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms or lower back. Whether it’s stretch marks from pregnancy, puberty, exercise or weight gain – stretch marks cause us to be self conscious about our skin, and they can be difficult to treat if you are not familiar with today’s most effective stretch mark removal treatments” Added Dr. Ishoo.
Smartlipo Triplex and SmartSkin-Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing Combination:
Dr. Ishoo’s innovative approach to treatment of stretch marks combines fractional ablative skin resurfacing to improve skin texture with sub-dermal application of the Smartlipo Triplex laser to tighten skin. “For the right patient, this combination approach to treatment of stretch marks offers significant improvement with minimal recovery and little to no impact on the patient’s daily activities.” States Dr. Edwin Ishoo. “In just 2 to 4 treatments some patients have seen better than 70% improvement in the overall appearance of their most prominent stretch marks” added Dr. Ishoo.
Smartlipo Triplex is used to deliver focused energy and heat precisely to the sub-dermal layer, stimulating significant collagen production in the dermal layer of skin, which leads to filling of the existing stretch marks and skin tightening. Additionally, the increased collagen support in the dermis improves skin’s elasticity and can prevent further stretch marks.” Smart Skin-Fractional CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment works by emitting short, scattered pulses of ablative light to only a fraction of the stretch mark over the course of a few short treatments. This creates microscopic wounds stimulating new collagen and epithelium to repair stretch marks and restore the skin’s elasticity.
