What Causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks occur when skin tears due to excessive forces upon the skin. The process of pregnancy, weight gain, and growth spurts can cause stretch marks. Steroid and hormonal changes can also weaken the bonds between the cells of the skin and can make stretch marks occur more readily.

Stretch marks usually occur in areas involving the breast, abdomen, thighs, groins and buttocks. They are initially red or purple, but, as time progress, often lighten.

Treatment of Stretch Marks

Using combination therapy with procedures such as: Fraxel, Microdermadrasion, Retinol, and Glycolic has shown to produce the most optimal results.

The results have been very rewarding!!! New laser technologies are available to treat stretch marks through stimulation of new collagen which shortens the distance of the stretch mark. Typically a minimum of a 50% improvement is obtained with one treatment regimen!
