Stretch Marks

Stretch Marks Treatment

We face different skin conditions during our lifetime. Some of these skin conditions can be avoided, but some cannot be avoided. Some skin conditions are interrelated to some other skin or body conditions. Same is the case with the stretch marks condition. It appears when the body stretches abnormally. It is also known as ‘striae’. It is a scarring like skin condition that appears as red or purple scratches. Some people also have a pinkish shade that turns to silvery white color later.

Stretch marks are often caused by the tearing of the dermis and epidermis layers or the two uppermost layers of the skin. It is important to consider an effective remedy or treatment to get rid of these marks because they look very bad on the skin. They are also notorious for limiting our dress selection because you have to cover your body if you are a victim of stretch marks.  Both men and women are susceptible to stretch marks, particularly on the thighs, hips, arms, buttocks, abdominal area, and lower back.

What causes stretch marks?

Jessica-AlbaAs discussed rapid and extreme stretching of the skin are responsible for tearing of the dermis and eventually the cause of stretch marks. The common factors are pregnancy when the belly keeps on getting bigger. Sudden weight gain also can cause stretch marks as the body goes through a similar experience.

I got stretch marks on my thighs last year. Although they were barely noticeable, I was quite fussy about them. I had laser therapy combined with Microdermabrasion and just after 4 sessions they are completely gone. Both the procedures were performed professionally. Would not hesitate to consult Olimpia and Laser Skin Care again for other skin issues.

I had a few residual stretch marks on my buttocks which I wanted to get rid of before my big day. I consulted 5 doctors before coming to Olimpia but they all said that eliminating stretch marks within two months is nearly impossible. However, the latter accepted the challenge and she literally did that. I am loving my clear, smooth skin like anything. Thanks Olimpia, you really are great!
