The stretch marks on your skin are the sign of an enormous effort that generated your skin to grow more than it could. The skin was damaged in the deep layer, in the dermis, thus creating those deep white scars that are called stretch marks. A scar that invades the body of men and women who seek to attenuate by using treatments in the areas where they appear (abdomen, arms, buttocks, lower back and chest) making their exposure uncomfortable for many.
The most common stretch marks are those that occur due to loss of elasticity or rupture of the skin due to extreme tension in the case of pregnant women, rapid weight gain, hormonal changes, hereditary, skin types, rapid muscle development. Those generated by excess cortisol may appear on the face mostly due to Cushing Syndrome or prescription in high doses of corticosteroids. At first, these scars turn reddish because they are the new ones that form on the skin, ideal for eliminating them through both invasive and non-invasive treatments
Invasive treatment to reduce stretch marks:
Through the laser procedure the areas of skin that by stretch became stretch marks are removed. This grows in the form of new skin and if the treatment is a success, the skin is born without imperfections. For the result to be optimal, a series of sessions are needed to remove the scars. Despite being an invasive method, it does not generate side effects and through its treatment the production of collagen is stimulated. In these cases, a FRAXEL 1550 or STARLUX 1540 device is usually used to perform the laser sessions. The aesthetic professional will perform sessions with infra-reds that improve the contraction of the tissues, which are part of its stretch mark removal package in its early stages (Red Scars). Radiofrequency is another current treatment to reduce stretch marks, which seeks to penetrate the skin to activate cells. Thanks to this new method, the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated by increasing the internal temperature reached in the dermis. The specialist will prescribe a specific type of cream to regenerate stretch marks; at that time it is that these types of creams will be effective.
Non-invasive treatment to reduce stretch marks:
Dermatologists will always recommend therapeutic methods in response to the discomfort generated in their patients. Through chemical peels, microdermabrasion and blue light therapy will seek to reduce stretch marks with the same success and much less expensive than laser removal. You should know that these types of treatments are more effective for still reddened scars. It is a fact that if these stretch marks appear on your skin there are treatments that will adapt to the origin of the scar. Start with a preventive habit such as the intake of plenty of water, exfoliate your skin, consume foods rich in vitamin A, C and E, and include in your diet foods rich in omega 3 that will help the production of collagen in your body.
