What causes stretch marks?

Stretch marks are caused when your skin suddenly stretches or shrinks. This abrupt change can cause collagen and elastin, two proteins that are responsible for supporting healthy skin, to break. This causes stretch marks to appear on your skin, they are painless and sometimes fade by themselves over time.

Stretch marks are nothing to be ashamed of, but if you do wish to seek treatment to reduce them then there are plenty of great options for you to choose from.

What is Laser and IPL treatment? 

Laser and IPL treatment works by heating up the problem area, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. 

Encouraging new skin cells to grow makes the skin look healthier and more even. This can reduce the appearance of stretch marks significantly.
