What is LineLaseTM?
LineLaseTM is an effective and safe laser treatment for stretch marks that is appropriate for all skin types. It softens and flattens the appearance of stretch marks while improving the overall appearance of the skin. It is a comfortable and non-aggressive procedure, allowing patients to return immediately to their normal routines.
How does the LineLaseTM treatment work?
LineLaseTM is a 2-step procedure that combines Fotona SMOOTH® tightening with ablative resurfacing.
The first stage consists of a revolutionary non-ablative Er:YAG SMOOTH® mode applied to the treatment area, which is ideal for skin tightening. The intense, controlled surface tissue heating stimulates collagen remodeling and initiates neocollagenesis. The effects result in an overall improvement of laxity and elasticity in the treated areas.
The second stage consists of skin ablation with a full or fractional Er:YAG beam, which improves the scar characteristics of striae and removes superficial imperfections.
Promising results and ongoing research
Research performed with Er:YAG lasers has shown excellent results. Up to 75% improvement of skin texture was observed in patients of a study conducted with Fotona SMOOTH® mode by Dr. R. Wanitphakdeedecha (see Scientific & Clinical Research tab). For best results, laser treatment should be performed as soon as possible after the appearance of stretch marks, as it is generally more successful for treating stretch marks in the early stages (Striae rubra). The treatment should be repeated several times, depending on the size and condition of the skin.
