What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are the result of the dermis stretching too quickly which causes the fibres in the central layer of the skin to tear. This is why new stretch marks are often red in colour, fading to a silvery line as they heal and age.
Who gets stretch marks?
- 70% of women experience stretch marks during puberty
- 40% of men experience stretch marks during puberty
- 60% of people will develop stretch marks through weight gain (including body builders)
The most affected areas are the abdomen, buttocks, breasts and thighs, however stretch marks can also appear on the arms, back and pectorals. Stretch marks can also be a sign of an underlying condition such as Cushings or Marfan syndrome.
Stretch mark removal – Time to fight back!
Depending on the age and severity of the stretch mark, we will recommend the best treatment for you. Digital and manual skin needling has proven to be extremely successful in reducing and removing stretch marks on all areas of the body. Micro needles trigger a healing response in the skin causing the body to create collagen and elastin which repair the tears in the dermal layer. As the skin regenerates, the stretch marks will be replaced with more healthy skin and less scar tissue.
We recommend a course of 3 sessions, 6 weeks apart for maximum results, it’s never too late to start fighting back so please get in touch with our team for more information or to book your first treatment 0207 792 9132 – email@example.com
