Stretch Mark Treatments
Skin’s most impressive ability is the capacity to stretch. The collagen and elastin in the skin’s dermis layer gives skin its strength and elasticity. Unfortunately some people don’t have as much collagen and elastin as others and the result is a lack of elasticity. This lack of elasticity as well as rapid growth can cause tearing of the connecting fibres that eventually turns into scarring. There are two types of stretch marks: white and red. Older stretch marks normally are white or silver-coloured and newer stretch marks are usually pink or purple in colour. We provide treatments that combat both new and old stretch marks by helping to initiate the body’s natural collagen production. Contact us and we’ll recommend your best treatment option to fit your skin type, condition, budget and preferences. We develop customized treatment plans based on your skin for optimal results. Often a combination of treatments provide the best results.
Before and After
Frequently Asked Questions
The skin consists of three key layers. Stretch marks form in the dermis, or middle layer, when the connective tissue is stretched beyond the limits of its elasticity. This is normally due to rapid expansion or contraction of the skin.
Stretch marks are a result of skin stretching and an increase of cortisone in the system. Cortisone is a hormone naturally produced by your adrenal glands. However, having too much of this hormone can make your skin lose its elasticity. Stretch marks are common in certain circumstances: Many women experience stretch marks during pregnancy as the skin stretches in numerous ways to make room for the developing baby. This continual tugging and stretching can cause stretch marks. Stretch marks sometimes appear when you rapidly gain or lose weight.
Though Stretch Marks are unsightly and no one likes them, there are treatments available to minimize the appearance of Stretch Marks.
