Our Lasers Get to the Source of Your Stretch Marks


Stretch marks form in the dermis, the middle layer of skin that allows it to retain its shape. When this layer experiences ongoing stretching due to pregnancy, weight gain, etc., the collagen and elastin that makes up the dermis structure breaks down and marks are left behind.  Our selected lasers effectively go deeper to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin - and do so more comfortably than other options.


It is my hope, that the Cartessa brand will serve as a ‘stamp of approval’. That patients can see it and feel confident that the device was evaluated, tested and selected by Cartessa because it is the best laser available in terms of results and patient experience.

Diminish Your Stretch Marks with Minimal Discomfort 

Vivace RF Microneedle

Like other microneedling treatments, the Vivace uses sterile microneedles to create many microscopic channels deep into the dermis of the skin to stimulate collagen production. New collagen can smooth the texture of stretch marks and reduce the appearance by improving the color.  Where Vivace stands out is in the application of radiofrequency energy (RF) at deeper, highly precise depths which adds to the tightening and toning effect.  Lastly, the Vivace is virtually pain-free and features red LED light therapy to increase collagen and further strengthen skin.
