Many people find living with stretch marks difficult, especially in the summer when they are easily revealed by swimwear. Here at The Laser Treatment Clinic we have been treating stretch marks for over 25 years and we understand the effect they can have on someone’s confidence and have successfully treated thousands of men and women with stretch mark issues on all parts of the body.
What are Stretch Marks?
Stretch Marks occur when the skin is overstretched, and the production of collagen is compromised in the area, resulting in a scar-like appearance. Frequently associated with pregnancy both men and women can suffer from stretch marks, as they frequently occur during puberty when most individuals experience rapid growth. They are also commonly seen in men after working out with weights. Initially appearing as purple or red marks, these marks do fade over time, but they never fully disappear. While stretch marks aren’t painful and they don’t limit movement, for many people they can be uncomfortable to live with due to their unsightly appearance.
They are most commonly seen on the breasts, arms, back, shoulders, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and knees. On all skin types and ages.
