Is the laser removal suitable for people who have lost significant weight or just for those with light surface stretch marks as a result of pregnancy or puberty?

I think that lasers are a fairly common treatment for stretch marks these days. Really, there's not much else you can do to get rid of stretch marks once you already have them. They work, as best I understand, but removing damaged skin and making small pinprick injuries that encourage the skin around it (which had previously stopped attempting to heal the area) to start up the natural healing process again. There's some more information about it here: http://stretchmarks1.com/Education/Treatments

There is supposed to be another relatively new stretch mark treatment that seems to produce impressive results. In fact, I think I read about it on this site. It is called carboxytherapy, and it involves CO2 injections just under the skin. In addition to stretch marks, carboxytherpy is also supposed to diminish cellulite, excess fat deposits, scars, acne pitting, and dark circles. Has anyone ever tried this treatment? I have read the hype, but I would love some real reviews. Does anyone know a doctor that offers carboxytherapy?

Lasers for stretch marks? I know I am not fully informed regarding this subject, but I would do much research before turning to this treatment, particularly if the laser will be applied on a visible part of the body. Lasers seem to have a number of wonderful benefits, but I have read that certain lasers can disrupt fat. I would be afraid the treated area would appear bumpy. However, perhaps cool lasers are governed by a different type of technology, so perhaps this would not be an issue.

It's hard for me to keep track of all the different laser treatments. Is there a convenient guide to which laser treatments work best on stretch marks? I also read about this other new laser treatment called the coolbeam, but I'm not sure the source is reliable since it's clearly a press release for that doctor.

Though coolbeam sounds pretty cool, like a super power.

This is a new, FDA approved method to help treat stretch marks. Essentially this process use lasers to create a thin layer of damage under the skin. This encourages collagen to rebuild, a process is shown to subtly stretch the skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. A video, as well as more information, can be found by clicking here. Quite an interesting procedure, indeed.
