Stretch marks, also known as striae distensae, is a type of scarring of the skin.
Stretch marks are typically found on areas of the skin which has expanded too quickly or for a prolonged period. Although our skin is fairly elastic, when it is overstretched, the normal function and production of collagen (major protein that makes up connective tissue in skin) and elastin (protein enabling skin to stretch and bounce back) are disrupted.
The result is broken collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in thin, atrophic, poor quality, hypopigmented skin.
They are seen most commonly over the tummy area, but can also appear almost anywhere else on the body including the thighs, buttocks, arms, hips and lower back.
Since stretch marks are atrophic scars, treatments targeting stretch marks should stimulate collagen and elastin production, improve wrinkling and tighten and firm up the skin.
These are in-clinic treatments proven to show good results:
Uses pico laser technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production, resulting in thicker, tighter skin
Uses RF monopolar technology to generate heat around 39-44 degrees to generate new collagen production, thus tightening and firming the skin. It can also reduce the appearance of cellulite
