I have brown skin and suffer from stretch marks and becker’s nevus on my lower stomach. What procedures can I look into that would completely remove those from my body?


Stretch marks typically cannot be improved significantly with any treatment, however, tend to fade a little with time. Becker’s naevus is form of deep dermal pigmentation that usually has hair from it also. We treat the pigmentation with our q-switched ruby or Nd:YAG lasers and the hair portion of the problem with our long-pulsed Alexandrite or Nd:YAG laser.
