Say Goodbye to Stretch Marks Once and For All With CynoSure Icon™

Do you have stretch marks? Whether your stretch marks have recently appeared or you've put up with them for years, there's now a way to diminish their appearance and up your confidence. It’s called Icon™ by Cynosure. This game-changing tool will help you fall in love with swimsuit season all over again.

Why do I have stretch marks?

Stretch marks are exactly what they sound like. Indentations caused by stretched skin. They typically grow over a brief period of time and are usually the result of pregnancy, weight gain, or weight loss. 

Women are more prone to stretch marks than men. But your genes play a role in determining your likelihood of developing them as well. Stretch marks come in several colors (including black). And most often affect your thighs, hips, stomach, and breasts.

Stretch marks are usually very visible and can ruin your confidence. Even though they fade over time, they don’t always fade fast enough. Icon™ treatments can help speed up the process.

What can I do about my stretch marks?

Chances are, you've tried creams to make your stretch marks fade. Maybe you’ve even tried aloe vera and coconut oil. What about DIY scrubs? While natural remedies can work for some, not all stretch marks disappear so quickly. If you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked, consider Icon™. It’s a laser treatment that applies energy pulses to your stretch marks. This energy forces your body to produce more collagen (a protein that increases skin elasticity) which minimizes the marks. 

Icon™ treatments offer other benefits, too:

These treatments can also treat surgical scars, acne scarring, and unwanted pigmentation. There are several reasons why you should consider Icon™ and few reasons why you shouldn’t. 

As always, talk to your doctor before deciding on treatment. Make sure they’re aware of your health conditions, medications, and anything that might cause a complication. 

Contact your doctor today!

Stretch marks aren't fun. If you have them, you're probably eager for them to go away! Start treatment now so you can feel confident by swimsuit season! Don’t wait, contact Thomas Sulkowski, MD at Sulkowski Family Medicine today and find out if Icon™ is right for you!
