Stretch marks are narrow streaks or lines that appear on the surface of the skin, they are often referred to as stria, striae or, during pregnancy, stria gravidium. Stretch marks can occur in both males and females of any age, generally occurring as a result of the skin suddenly stretching. Here we look at how you can eliminate your stretch marks for good.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks can appear as red, dark or silver-white lines on the skin, as a result of general weight gain, pregnancy or in adolescents after growth spurts. A common preconception of stretch marks is that they are mostly caused by pregnancy, and therefore pregnant women are the only ones susceptible to them; unfortunately, this is not the case. Stretch marks can be found in both men and women of any age. The middle level of the skin (dermis) breaks in places, due to sudden stretching of the skin, and this allows the deeper levels of the skin to show through.
Eliminate Your Stretch Marks
Once the elastic fibres that are found under your skins surface break, stretch marks are formed. There are a number of preventative measures you can take to help eliminate your stretch marks; firstly, and whilst we understand how difficult it can be to keep up a regular skincare routine. But, not only will moisturising your skin reaffirm the elasticity, so when the skin expands rapidly stretch marks will not appear.
At The Laser Treatment Clinic, we utilise cutting edge treatment to help eliminate your stretch marks. Marine Boost Treatment involves an advanced peel and medical microdermabrasion treatment with Marine Boost skincare; this encourages skin rejuvenation through advanced exfoliation to remove the affected layer of the skin.
Another common preconception about the removal of stretch marks is that it is difficult to remove them once they have turned silver-white; this is not the case at The Laser Treatment Clinic. Whilst everybody’s skin will react differently, we have a 75% success rate in fading or clearing the appearance of stretch marks of all stages on all skin types.
Following the treatment, the skin will go through a healing process through which some inflammation and pigmentation may occur; however, this is completely normal and will soon disappear. Continued use of our Marine Boost Skincare help prevent and reduce any future stretch marks!
