Anyone can experience stretch marks which are actually a form of scarring. There are many reasons why they occur but they are typically caused by rapid increase in weight.
When you rapidly gain weight, your skin is not able to stretch at the rate at which you gain that excessive weight. Some people have quite subtle stretch marks that one can hardly notice but on others these stretch marks seem very bothersome and discolored. Your skin is quite elastic, but if your skin starts to grow faster than normal then marks can appear.
Fortunately, there are various ways to treat these stretch marks. One such method is laser stretch mark removal surgery. People generally opt for this method when they have tried other methods and have not benefited from them. The procedure is quite a simple one. The basic manner in which this works is that a laser is brought into contact with these marks. This disrupts the molecular bonds in the affected areas of the skin. The scar tissue in the marks is broken down and removed.
The procedure is not time consuming and you can resume your normal day-to-day activities immediately after your treatment. A new layer of skin will start to grow in the treated area. A few sessions could be required for full removal.
