Stretch marks are a source of insecurity for most people, fortunately, there are several minimally invasive treatment options to help reduce stretch marks. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, we use combination therapy to improve the appearance of stretch marks. These treatments help improve skin texture, stimulate the production of collagen in the body and tighten the skin.
Stretch marks can be treated using a combination of the following treatments:
- Fractionated Carbon Dioxide Laser Therapy
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
- Therapeutic Light-Based Treatment
- Skin Peels
- Topical Skin Rejuvenation

Fractionated Carbon Dioxide Laser Therapy
We use Dermal Optical Thermolysis (DOT) laser therapy to help improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. This treatment uses a fractionated CO2 laser to create a customized pattern of thousands of microscopic “dots” in the skin, which causes the skin to immediately tight and stimulates collagen production. DOT laser therapy works to correct acne scars, deep wrinkles, stretch marks and fine lines. Results can typically be seen after the first session.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can help heal and regenerate damaged tissue in all areas of the body. This treatment uses injections of patients’ own platelets, which contain adult stem cells and growth factors, to help stimulate collagen production and generate blood supply to the treated area. Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is often used in combination with laser therapy treatments.
Therapeutic Light-Based Treatment
The most common light-based treatment we use to treat stretch marks is focus pulse light treatment. Similar to the intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment, focus pulse light treatments use light-based energy to break down scar tissue created by the stretching of the skin and stimulate collagen production. Focus pulse light treatment smooths the skin and reduces the discoloration associated with stretch marks.
Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery Santa Rosa offers several chemical peel options, including our sensitive skin peel, pigment balancing peel, and corrective peel. A medicated solution is applied to the skin and allowed to absorb for a specific amount of time before being neutralized. In the next one to fourteen days following treatment, the skin will peel or flake off to reveal new, healthy skin.
Chemical peels can improve sun damage, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and reduce the appearance of scars. Our skin peel treatments can be customized to be meet the individual needs of each patient.
