Stretch Mark Removal Treatment

Stretch Mark Removal Treatment

Striae, commonly called Stretch Marks, are lines or streaks on the skin, which can be pink, purple or white in color (depending on their age), which appear when the inner skin layer is stretched thin and loses its elasticity. Stretch marks occur when skin stretches and there aren’t new cells available to support the stretched skin.The most commonly affected areas are the breasts, thighs, stomach, hips and back. Stretch marks come about as a direct result of the skin getting stretched due to rapid growth , such as during puberty , or weight gain as seen during pregnancy. Although the skin has a fair degree of elasticity, such stretching is bound to leave prominent marks. A lot of pregnant women, in particular, experience stretch marks in different areas especially in the latter half of their terms. Normally, these marks fade over time, and there are a number of treatments that can help in this case.
Certain medications and weight training which leads to massive muscle growth can also cause stretch marks.

Treatment Procedure

Cleansing of the area where stretch marks are present
Application of numbing cream to minimize any discomfort
Laser shots given onto the stretch marks
Cleaning the area and application of post procedure cream

Frequenlty Asked Questions

WHAT ARE STRETCH MARKS AND WHAT ARE ITS DIFFERENT TYPES?

Stretch marks are known as Striae in medical term. They are basically scar which develops due to shrinking or stretching on skin. Stretch marks are of different categories namely : Striae gravidarum which is mostly pregnancy related where the skin expands very fast in few months, Striae rubrae marks are red in colour, Straie Albae are silvery white in colour, Striae atrophicans caused by skin thinning, Striae caerulea is a dark blue mark and Striae nigrae possess a deep dark black colour. Striae are also classified into physiological and pathological striae. Physiological striae aren’t associated with any underlying disease and conditions but pathological striae are associated.

HOW DO STRETCH MARKS FORM?

To understand this it is important to know the 3 layers of your skin namely :Epidermis (Outer visible layer), Dermis (below your epidermis or middle layer) and Hypodermis (Deepest layer of your skin). Now then the other important bodies within your skin are collagen and elastin which are proteins that are building blocks or you can say backbone of your skin. These are situated in the dermis layer of your skin which provides elasticity and flexibility to your skin. Now when your body grows faster than its normal rate , also faster than skin then it becomes a task for your collagen and elastin to keep up and it gets overstretched. The connective fibers are forced thereby to extend beyond their elastic capability and they tear. Then in the process of self repairing and trying to come back in its original form stretch marks develop in the dermis layer of your skin and appears as patches on the skin’s surface. The internal tearing causes the blood vessels to be uncovered leading to development of purple, pink or brownish color marks. At the onset later the dark color diminishes into silvery white marks. The scarring can become less prominent over time but the stretch mark will not fade away completely.

HOW CAN ONE PREVENT STRETCH MARKS OCCURANCE?
