Stretch marks can affect us all, despite the common association with pregnancy. They occur when the dermal layer of the skin is stretched beyond its elastic capacity, causing it to tear.
The resulting repair process leaves a mark that is initially red or purple, before fading over time to become a silver colour. Remedies for improving their appearance range can be found everywhere, but for real results, laser stretch mark removal is the most effective form of treatment.
But why have it done?
• The change in the pigmentation of the skin is permanent, and they will become more noticeable when the surrounding skin is tanned.
• Stretch marks can appear almost anywhere on the body where the skin is stretched, although they usually tend to form on the stomach, thighs and breasts.
• They can have a significant impact on a person’s self-confidence, meaning that they are unable to wear certain clothing, as well as having an effect on personal relationships.
• Stretch marks have a texture that is different from that of the surrounding skin. Microdermabrasion can provide a great improvement to this surface texture.
Microdermabrasion and laser treatment is a non-invasive treatment that provides improvement and relief from unsightly stretch marks.
