The Best Way To Get Rid Of Stretch Marks

Why do we get Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks can occur in both men and women due to all manner of reasons that cause our skin to be pulled by rapid growth or stretching. This is no more obvious than when we go through puberty and experience growth spurts, which can cause these fine lines and marks on the body that we all call ‘stretch marks’. As well as this there is the possibility of stretch marks occurring when we gain weight very quickly, such as during pregnancy in women. You can even develop stretch marks if you have a family history of them, and in rare cases they do occur due to an underlying health issue or as a side effect of certain medications. Stretch marks most commonly occur around the abdomen, buttocks, breasts, thighs and arms.

The Best Treatment for Stretch Marks

In most cases, stretch marks do fade over time, but if yours are particularly large and unsightly then there are treatments available. There are a variety of creams on the market but there is very little proof that they actually provide any notable results. However, there is also the option to have laser treatments in order to stimulate the growth of new, youthful skin cells around the target area. Using leading laser technologies and Marine Boost treatment, the skin is first exfoliated by way of an advanced peel, followed by medical microdermabrasion, all of which promotes skin rejuvenation. As the affected superficial layers of skin are removed, over time, the new skin beneath will appear firmer with a more even texture due to collagen growth and change.
