Scars, cellulite, and stretch marks are the common concerns of most women, especially those above the age of 50. While scars are common in men and women of all ages, they tend to be more pronounced in older patients as advancing age reduces the body’s ability to heal the skin efficiently, resulting in larger and more pronounced scars.
Stretch marks are common in women, especially after pregnancy. They can also develop in men and women after changes in weight. Stretch marks are formed when the skin covering body fat is unable to retract to its original state after the body has quickly changed size, whether from giving birth or losing weight suddenly.
Cellulite is also the result of the accumulation of fats beneath the skin. The excess fats trigger inflammation, causing skin to look red and unhealthy.
Dr. Ganta offers a safe and effective treatment to manage these issues without the need for any incision or anesthesia. Dr. Ganta is an experienced surgeon with years of experience in managing skin problems linked to aging and fat accumulation. He recommends laser treatment for the management of scars, cellulite, and stretch marks.
Laser therapy involves the removal of stretch marks through a process called laser resurfacing. It fades away the stretch marks and restores the firm appearance of the skin.
During this procedure, the affected part of the skin is exposed to laser beams that hear the surface of the skin, causing the dead cells to be destroyed and encouraging the generation of new skin cells. This can eliminate the scar tissue and reduce stretch marks and replace them with new and healthy skin cells, melting fat in the process.
Dr. Ganta may also recommend other non-invasive therapies like microdermabrasion or micro-needling depending on the skin type of the patient and the symptoms to be treated.
