Stretch Marks Removal
Understanding Stretch Marks
Scarring caused due to the stretching of collagen fibres, stretch marks are a common phenomenon affecting almost everyone. It occurs due to the pulling of the skin due to stretching or growth. With stretch marks affecting the dermis, applying cream or other cosmetic products on the epidermis cannot help in their prevention or removal. This makes laser treatment for stretch marks one of the most widely chosen treatment options.
Irrespective of the gender or skin type, stretch marks can be seen as purple or red lines that fade to white eventually.
Causes of Stretch Marks
Stretch marks occur due to a number of factors that lead to the stretching of the skin. The common causes include:
Pregnancy: With a baby rapidly growing in the womb during pregnancy, the abdominal area of pregnant women starts to stretch in the final trimester. Pregnant women also often develop stretch marks on the hips, the breasts, the thighs, and the buttocks.
Growth during puberty: Puberty is a time when children undergo rapid growth, causing the skin to stretch. For some youngsters, stretch marks may occur right during puberty.
Rapid loss or gain or weight: Weight gain is yet another factor that causes the skin to stretch beyond what it normally has been. With the change in collagen and the stretching of the skin, stretch marks are bound to occur.
