Can you get rid of stretch marks for good? That is a question many people find themselves wondering as they stand in front of a mirror. Stretch marks are a natural occurrence, but that does not mean you are stuck with these lines and wrinkles forever. There are various methods of stretch mark removal out there, but one of the latest technologies from Cutera known as SecretPRO is changing the game. Is SecretPRO the solution to help you get rid of stretch marks? Let’s find out.
What are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks, also known as striae, are visible lines that appear on the skin’s surface. They often have a different color or texture compared to the surrounding skin and can vary in length, width, and appearance. Stretch marks typically occur when the skin undergoes rapid stretching or shrinking, leading to the breaking or tearing of the collagen and elastin fibers in the middle layer of the skin (dermis).
Stretch marks most commonly occur during periods of rapid weight gain or loss, including puberty and pregnancy. Sometimes hormonal imbalances may also cause the skin to weaken and stretch more easily.
How To Get Rid of Stretch Marks
Getting rid of stretch marks completely can be challenging since they are a form of scarring in the skin. However, there are several treatment options available that can help reduce their appearance and make them less noticeable. Here are some approaches that you can consider:
- Creams and lotions: Moisturizing the skin can improve the appearance of stretch marks. Usually, these topical solutions have ingredients like hyaluronic acid, cocoa butter, vitamin E, and retinoids.
- Laser treatments: Fractional laser resurfacing and other laser treatments can be effective, as they stimulate collagen production and help the skin remodel itself. With these treatments, the color and texture of your stretch marks will fade.
- Microneedling: The fine punctures made by microneedling promotes collagen production. As such, microneedling treatments can help improve the texture and color of stretch marks over time.
- Chemical peels: By exfoliating the top layer of the skin, you can promote cell turnover and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
- Retinoid creams: Certain prescription-strength retinoid creams, such as tretinoin, may be recommended by dermatologists to help improve the appearance of stretch marks. These creams work by promoting collagen production and increasing cell turnover in the skin.

Key Features and Benefits of SecretPRO
Here are some key features and benefits of Cutera SecretPRO:
- Fractional RF Microneedling: Cutera SecretPRO utilizes tiny insulated microneedles that penetrate the skin’s surface, delivering controlled RF energy to the deeper layers of the skin. This combination of microneedling and RF technology allows for precise targeting of the stretch marks and stimulates the skin’s natural healing response.
- Collagen Remodeling: The RF energy emitted by the SecretPRO device generates heat in the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and remodeling. This process helps improve the elasticity and texture of the skin, reducing the appearance of stretch marks over time.
- Skin Tightening: Sagging or loose skin can be a common concern as we age or experience weight fluctuations. Cutera SecretPRO’s RF energy penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating collagen contraction and tightening the underlying tissue. This helps restore firmness and elasticity to the skin, leading to a more lifted and youthful appearance.
- Versatile Treatment: In addition to stretch marks, Cutera SecretPRO can also be used to address other skin concerns, including acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin texture. It is a versatile treatment option that can be customized to suit various skin types and conditions.
- Minimal Downtime: SecretPRO’s technology promotes quicker healing and recovery compared to some other treatments. The micro-injuries created by the microneedles trigger the body’s natural healing response, leading to minimal downtime and discomfort.
