Stretch Marks: Origins and Remedies

Fractional CO2 Laser and Retinoic Acid Peeling are considered the most effective treatments for stretch marks.

Their effects stimulate the production of collagen and increase the hydration and elasticity of the treated area.

Consequently, they rejuvenate the skin and soften stretch marks, leaving them thinner and less noticeable.

Dr. Szerman Explains:

At Clinica de Pele, we use the Fractional and Pulsed CO2 Laser DEKA, which rejuvenates the skin and treats stretch marks in various regions of the body using heat, without causing burns as other types of lasers do.

This way, we can soften stretch marks and leave the skin with a more uniform appearance.

Our laser treatment for stretch marks stimulates collagen production through heat instead of burning, providing more comfort to the patient and faster recovery.

The treatment helps combat both red and white stretch marks, with noticeable improvements of up to 90% in the case of red stretch marks and 60% to 80% in most cases of white stretch marks.

Who does it?
The treatment is administered by Dr. Szerman, a highly experienced doctor who graduated from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). With over 20 years of experience, he is a renowned expert in laser treatments, and he even provides courses for beginner doctors.
How does it work?
The CO2 laser stimulates collagen production through heat, which effectively treats stretch marks from the inside out. Retinoic Acid, on the other hand, acts chemically on the skin, resulting in a more uniform appearance of the treated area.
What are the benefits?
We only use the most advanced procedures and technology, which involve the CO2 DEKA laser to achieve optimal results while ensuring maximum comfort for the patient.

This treatment for stretch marks is excellent, providing a lot of care and yielding very effective results. I underwent two sessions and had numerous stretch marks, but after these sessions, they are now almost imperceptible. I have tried several treatments before, but none have been as effective as this one. The procedure is definitely worth it.

When do stretch marks appear?

Stretch marks appear in areas where the skin has been stretched, and they occur when the elastic and collagen fibres are damaged. These fibres are responsible for supporting and providing elasticity to the skin.

Stretch marks can vary in color from whitish to pinkish. The color of a stretch mark can indicate its age; for instance, a red stretch mark is more recent, while a white one is older.

The CO2 laser is currently the most efficient treatment for stretch marks. It is important to compare the technology that will be used in your treatment. Clínica de Pele Dr. Szerman uses the Fractional and Pulsed CO2 Laser (Deka Laser), which provides better protection for the patient’s skin and does not cause burning, unlike some lasers on the market.

The dermatologist can also combine CO2 laser sessions for stretch marks with peeling applications.

For more information about the treatment, please contact us via WhatsApp.

With a combination of 70% active substances, the Melanesse and Retinoic peels offer a safe rejuvenation for stretch marks by promoting fast and effective cell renewal of the superficial layer of the skin. They can be combined with crystal and Jessner peels to enhance their results.

After the peeling process, there may be slight flaking.


The Fractional and Pulsed CO2 Laser Deka that we use in our clinic works by stimulating the production of collagen through heat, rather than burning like most other types of lasers. This results in an increase in collagen fibres, promoting greater hydration and elasticity in the area affected by stretch marks. As a result, the marks are smoothed out, leaving the skin with a more uniform appearance. This treatment is considered one of the most efficient options for treating stretch marks.

The procedure can be performed on any part of the body, with the most common areas being the arms, breasts, hips, thighs, and buttocks.

The procedure is usually well-tolerated due to its pulsed technology. The Deka laser gradually penetrates the deep layers of skin without causing the aggression that most other lasers do. Additionally, we use a powerful anaesthetic cream and a skin cooler device (Freddo), which emits a jet of iced air at minus 22 degrees Fahrenheit (-30 °C), making the procedure extremely comfortable for most patients.

After the procedure, there may be redness, swelling, and mild to moderate burning, which usually subsides quickly. A light crust forms after 24 hours, which heals with the prescribed medication in 4 to 6 days (for the face) and 10 to 15 days (for the body).

During the treatment, the patient should avoid excessive sunlight and suspend the use of acids and hydroquinone for 3 days prior to the session.

We believe that three factors are necessary for successful treatment: experienced doctors, modern treatments, and well-informed patients. Therefore, we always strive for excellence in service and work with lasers that have cutting-edge technology, capable of providing less invasive treatment.

The Italian CO2 Laser Deka (fractionated + pulsed) used for treatment rejuvenates the skin through its thermal effect (heat), which is effective in treating stretch marks because it ensures the controlled production of collagen and elastin. This type of laser differs from non-pulsed fractional lasers used in the market, which rejuvenate the skin by burning.

Post-laser repair serum is applied to aid in the renewal and rejuvenation of the skin and can be applied immediately after the CO2 laser session.

In addition to laser treatment, we use retinoic acid peeling (a vitamin-A derivative) and melanesse plus for procedures. These two types of peelings are the most suitable for treating stretch marks and act as medicine, remaining on the skin for approximately 8 hours after application. They can be applied immediately after crystal peeling.

Please contact us for information about the Pixel Laser (Fractionated Erbium), which can also be used in treatments.

In order to determine the optimal procedure for your case, it is necessary to conduct preliminary research. Conducting research, comparing, and comprehending the distinctions between different types of treatments is the most effective method to guarantee a safe and successful outcome for the desired procedure.

Besides, it is crucial to understand the primary differences between the types and brands of lasers available on the market. Making the right choices is fundamental for safety and achieving the best treatment results.

For safe treatment, only board-certified medical professionals specializing in aesthetic medicine and/or members of the Brazilian Society of Dermatology and/or Laser should be consulted.
