How Do You Remove Stretch Marks David Reath Knoxville Plastic Surgeon
Hi everybody. I'm David Reath, and I'mgoing to talk about this week's TruthOMeter Tuesday question.The question we asked this week was basically a request from many of you from our previousweek. We asked about things that you wanted to knowabout, and one of the top things was stretch marks.So our question was this, quot;The only truly effective way to treat stretch marks is bysurgically removing the skin that contains the streth marks.quot;I would like to tell you that that was a quot;falsequot; or sort of a toss of a coin, but the factof the matter is, that's true.
The problem is this: stretch marks are reallyscars. And there's no way to eliminate a scar totally either than to remove the skin thatcontains the scar. People have tried different creams, peoplehave tried different salves, people hvae tried laser. None of these things really work onstretch marks. They're still there, and quite honestly I think the results for most of thesethings are not worth what you're going to pay for them.Now it is true that as time goes on stretch marks may fade a little bit, as do scars.But they won't go away unless you remove the skin that contains the scars.So I'm sorry to tell you all that the answer
to that is true. Most of you already knowthis, and got it right. So let's find out who won this week.Britney Phillips. Britney, congratulations, you're this week's winner.You get a $100 gift card, come on into the office. Pick that up. We'd love to see you.I thank everybody for playing this week, we had a great number of responses, and we'regoing to try to come up with a really good, interesting questionfor you again next week. So, see you then.
CoolBeam Laser Treatment for Scars Stretchmarks
It was something that was really life changing for me. These women have discovered a newtreatment for scars, sun damage and even severe stretch marks being used with stunning success at Epione in Beverly Hills. The latest in laser technology called Coolbeam is being hailed as a breakthrough in cosmetic surgery. Coolbeam is great because a lot of times people get so caught up in taking care of their face, that they forget to take care of the body as well. It can erase sun damage on the décolletage, the back, it's great for scars, stretch marks, for sagging skin. It's really a miracle.
The unsightly problem of stretch mark on the abdomen, breast or thighs used to be a condition that could not be treated, much less erased. That was until Simon Ourian discovered and developed a groundbreaking fix for a body issue that plagues women of all ages. Simon Ourian: Truly it was an accident that we found out that this laser could work on stretch marks. I was treating scars and around the same scars, I noticed that some stretch marks did disappear. I lost 60 pounds. There was a lot of weight that I took off, and I had an incredible
amount of stretch marks. I must have spent maybe $1,000.00 or more on just different tubes of things that are sitting in the bottom of my sink. Of course none of it was useful, and none of it was worth any of the money I spent. Maggie finally decided to go to Epione in Beverly Hills for a free consultation. There, the experienced and educator patientcoordinators explained how the Coolbeam laser works, and whether it could work its magic on Maggie's stretch marks. Simon Ourian: It is one of the most amazingtreatments because it really works, and there really isn't anything out in the market that does the same thing, or treats the stretch
marks so quickly, so effectively and so safely. The Coolbeam laser works by literally sanding down stretch marks. Only the scar tissue is targeted, leaving healthy skin untouched. During the procedure, the entire surface of the skin is first cooled, and then a series of light pulses is flashed on the surface. The skin cells absorb the light energy causinginstantaneous vaporization of the top layer. As the light passes over your skin, a mere ten millionth of an inch of tissue is removed at a time. And this incredible control allows Ourian to treat only as deeply as needed. After the damaged skin is removed, new skin and rejuvenated collagen quickly regrows
in its place. Simon Ourian: And after three or four sessions, most people see significant improvement in their stretch marks. The laser was just a quick tapping like a it felt a little bit like little rubber bands tapping against my skin, and it was over before I even knew it. It took care of the stretch marks well enough that I no longer have to hide my abdomen from view. The procedure is virtually painless because the cold burst of air from the Coolbeam minimizes any discomfort.
Within the next four days, I saw new skin coming up to the surface, and I was excited enough to go to the gym and show everybody, quot;Look at my new skin!quot; The Coolbeam procedure is considered extremely safe. And while a pigmentation change, swelling or discomfort in the treated area may be expected, those side effects are temporary. And because Coolbeam utilizes the very latest in laser technology, it can now help people of all skin types diminish stretch marks, scars and the aging effects of the sun. Ten years ago, clients with for example a deeper skin tone or richer skin tone would not have been candidates for laser.Today that's simply not the case. Coolaser
