Stretch Marks Removal

Removing stretch marks

Stretch Marks RemovalStretch marks happen to both men and women. Stretch marks (striae) are obvious lines that are often seen on the abdomen, thighs, breasts, buttocks and upper arms. They are red, pink or darker in color which usually fades in time to a lighter gray or white. Most of the time, stretch marks happen to pregnant women. But during puberty and rapid weight gain and loss can also cause stretch marks to appear. The visible lines on the skin appear when the middle layer of the skin or dermis is stretched beyond its flexibility. This will affect the collagen production of the skin and eventually becomes stretch marks.

How to get rid of stretch marks?

The only way to remove stretch marks permanently is by surgically removing the loose and affected skin. However, it is still possible to lighten the stretch marks and reduce its appearance.

  • Lotion and Moisturiser
    There are a lot of benefits when you moisturise your skin. Aside from hydrating your skin, applying lotion or moisturiser will definitely improve the skin’s elasticity thus reducing stretch marks to develop. There are various lotions and moisturisers that boost the collagen production that you can choose from. This will help improve and normalise the collagen level of the skin preventing stretch marks to form. Reducing the appearance of stretch marks will take some time to take effect. That’s why it is recommended to moisturise your skin daily especially on the areas where the stretch marks are visible. Even if you don’t have stretch marks, regular application of lotion and moisturiser will lessen the possibility of you having one.
  • Laser Treatment
    This is a bit expensive than lotions and moisturisers. However, the results can be immediate after the treated skin healed. Laser treatments can remove stretch marks depending on the severity of the stretch marks. But in most cases, laser treatment only reduces and lightens the visibility of stretch marks. Laser treatments enhance collagen production, melanin and elastin in the skin thus reducing the appearance of stretch marks. There are different kinds of laser treatments. Depending on your skin color, how sever it is and where the stretch marks are located, your specialist will give you options on what laser treatment you can have and how many sessions you’ll go through.
  • Microdermabrasion
    Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin exfoliating and rejuvenating technique that helps bring back smoother skin. It uses a special equipment to spray tiny pressurized crystals on the skin and later on suctioned to remove the dead outer layer of the skin. Microdermabrasion can be effective on reducing the appearance of minor and older stretch marks.
