Scars & Stretch Marks

Any kind of injury or trauma to the skin can cause scarring. Acne can cause scarring on the face and back. Stretch marks result from sudden expansion and widening of skin. They can be found on the abdominal area, arms, legs and bum.

Scarring is a natural part of the skin’s healing process. A scar matures over many months (up to 18) and with time will soften and fade. Complete scar removal isn’t possible however we can reduce the appearance, aid the healing process and make it less visible.


Lasers can be used for scars and stretch marks all over the body. Skin resurfacing can be achieved with our ResurFX non-ablative laser. This stimulates collagen type I (think tightly packed brick wall appearance) production and therefore aims to remodel the type III traumatic collagen (think bowl of spaghetti appearance).

Pigmentation (hyperpigmentation) often follows scarring. The M22 Laser’s unique rejuvenation technology includes two solutions, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and ResurFX™ non-ablative skin resurfacing, enabling us to address both skin tone and texture during the the same session.

Our non ablative skin resurfacing laser treatment ResurFX scans and delivers the laser beams in a precise manner alongside a unique cooling system called CoolScan. This state of the art technology creates continuous contact cooling to increase patient comfort during treatment.
