Stretch Marks

Aa condition which can effect people of all ages

A stretch mark is a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear. Stretch marks are very common and both men and women can have them thy dos not cause any significant medical problems but can be of cosmetic concern.

Stretch marks also known as striae are common:

  • during/after pregnancy 
  • rapid weight gain 
  • rapid growth, particularly during adolescence

 

Stretch marks occur in certain areas of the body where the skin is subjected to continuous and progressive stretching.

These includes:

  • Abdomen and breast in pregnant women
  • Adolescents undergoing growth spurts (thighs, buttocks, breasts, back)
  • Shoulders in bodybuilders

 

To treat stretch marks a practitioner will need to target deep in the dermis in order to help to stimulate new collagen production.
