Nordlys Ellipse IPL Laser Stretch Mark Treatments
The Nordlys Ellipse IPL laser skin treatment is an amazing, state-of-the-art, skin care technology that comes from Scandinavia – the land known for flawless skin!
This Nordlys Ellipse IPL laser effectively treats a wide variety of skin conditions, including unsightly stretch marks, by using a combination of fractional and infrared lasers in one device that can cover both small and large areas of the body.
Birmingham AMAE Med Spa is one of the few facilities in Oakland County to offer this fast, comfortable, affordable, high-tech laser skin care treatment. In this article we discuss how the Nordlys Ellipse IPL laser treats stretch marks.
How IPL Laser Stretch Mark Treatments Work
Stretch Marks, also known as Striae, occur when any area of the skin expands rapidly – such as the abdomen during pregnancy. Straiae are also often also found on the breasts, thighs, hips, lower back and buttocks. Stretch Marks are actually caused by a tearing of the skin (dermis). Initially stretch marks are red or blue, but in time they become colorless – looking almost white against our normal skin pigment.
For red or blue striae (new stretch marks) the Ellipse Selective Waveband IPL Laser works by directing controlled pulses of specific light frequencies into the upper skin layer. The light is absorbed by haemoglobin in the red blood that is in the blood vessels in the stretch marks.
The light energy is then transformed into heat, which damages the walls of the micro-blood vessels. The light produced by the Ellipse systems is carefully controlled to produce the correct wavelengths and pulse lengths to destroy the targeted celss without damaging surrounding tissue.
However, for colourless stretch marks (old striae) the Frax 1550, non-ablative fractional laser, is a better alternative. This because there is a lack of haemoglobin in the striae for the IPl laser to target.
Most patients with stretch marks will benefit the most from a combination treatment of SWT® and non-ablative fractional treatment.
