Remove stretch marks on the body that appeared afterpregnancy or as a result of a sharp fluctuation in weight, it is impossible without the help of specialists - any doctor will tell you about it. The maximum that can be achieved at home using traditional folk remedies is a slight improvement in the skin condition, but nothing more. Representatives of the fair sex, who, unfortunately, have encountered this problem, it is recommended not to wait for the situation to worsen. It should be understood, the earlier you go to the salon to remove the stretch marks, the more likely it is to get positive results after applying the laser.
Body streaks: basic locations
Striae can arise whereweight loss stretches the skin - arms, abdomen, hips, legs, chest, waist. The reasons for their appearance are several, beginning with pregnancy, when the skin simply does not keep up with the rate of fetal growth, ending with a weight fluctuation and a hormonal failure. But the result is one - the body looks, to put it mildly, unattractive, which is why almost all representatives of the fair sex have serious complexes.
Laser: is the 100% result guaranteed?
Certainly, hope for a complete removal of striae andthe fact that your skin will be perfectly smooth, as before, is not worth it. Small traces of stretch marks will still remain after the treatment, but they will be hardly noticeable. The number of necessary procedures directly depends on how long this problem has manifested itself. So, fresh and newly emerged striae, for example, after birth the laser cleans up quickly. On average, you will have to spend time for four to five sessions, not more. Many women are interested in another question - is it a painful procedure. First, it all depends on your threshold of sensitivity, and secondly, on autosuggestion. Usually in salons before removal of stretch marks by a laser patients anesthetize. But some still feel a slight discomfort during the exposure of the device to the skin.

Therefore, in order not to get to the reception to the amator, be vigilant, and do not trust promises of unearthly beauty and quick 100% results.
The very first thing you should pay attention to- this is the availability of documentation confirming the legality of the work of this institution. Ask them to show the certificates and licenses closer to make sure they are original, not fake. If you are assured that they have everything fair, but still do not give the papers, immediately leave the salon, no matter how much the services of the masters cost. Do not risk your health, because you can remove stretch marks and elsewhere.

Also there is always written the basic information and a small portfolio with works is represented. By the way, the absence of price is a bad sign.
- Attitude of staff

You should be greeted with a smile, joyfully listening to your wishes and demands, no matter how strange they may be.
How to know if a person knows his or her business or heworks through sleeves? It is enough to listen carefully, about what he says during the first reception. If the doctor claims that the removal of the striae - the procedure is completely safe and after a couple of months you will be able to flaunt the beach in a bikini, then he frankly lies to you. The specialist first should tell you that removing such defects, especially the very old ones, is not easy, serious consequences and complications are possible.
