Stretch marks are long, narrow streaks, stripes, or lines that develop on the skin. They occur when the skin is suddenly stretched and are extremely common.
Anyone can develop stretch marks, although they tend to affect more women than men.
They can occur on a range of body parts, including the stomach, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms, and lower back.
This type of scarring happens when the skin cannot resume normal form after a period of intense growth, often due to pregnancy, weight gain, weight loss, or puberty. Over 50% of women experience stretch marks during pregnancy.
Stretch marks are not physically dangerous but can cause problems with self-image and anxiety. For some people, stretch marks are a significant cosmetic concern that can affect day-to-day living.
HOW TO GET RID OF STRETCH MARKS WITH LASER AND MICRONEEDLING
Laser and micro needling treatments are considered the most effective for stretch mark removal, and there’s a good reason why: They force healing. This kick-starts the body’s natural healing process, removing damaged tissue and rebuilding it using fresh collagen—and revealing fresh, smooth skin in the process. That collagen will improve both skin texture and skin color, making stretch marks slowly disappear. Stem cells work together to strengthen skin cells deep under the superficial layer of skin. The treatment targets skin laxity, hyperpigmentation and overall skin tone and texture. Essentially this means improve sagging, as well as color and texture changes, to make skin look smooth and taut.
Stretch marks can make you feel self-conscious and uncomfortable about your appearance. Fortunately, at Vitality Laser Spa there are ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
