Stretch marks affect almost 95% of men and women. They are formed in the areas of the body where the skin is imperilled to continuous stretching. There are three types of skin layers in the subcutaneous or hypodermis (deepest layer), dermis (middle layer) and the epidermis (the outer layer).
Stretch marks are formed within the dermis, we see common causes of stretch marks from obesity, pregnancy, puberty and various activities.
This continuous stretching of an area damages the dermal tissue atrophy and causes the outer layer of this area to become thinner. In a result of this, the deeper layer of the skin area is revealed, forming unsightly marks and streaks along the surface. They tend to be a red or purple appearance, gradually fading to a white colour.
The Most Common Places?
Stretch marks can develop in most areas In your body, but in our experience, we have mostly treated in areas of the stomach, thighs, buttocks, breasts and upper arms.
The condition of a stretch mark will depend on the person’s skin type, for example, a person with higher collagen will less likely get stretch marks, this is because collagen keeps the skin elastic and stretchy; allowing to expand more easily.
While this condition can fade over time with oils and creams to help this process – This can often take years. At Laser Image Specialists we know how self-conscious one can be when having stretch marks in certain areas.
Whether they appear on your stomach, arms, thighs, legs or buttocks, our laser technology method will create micro would which trigger the body’s natural healing response allowing for new skin cells to be generated reducing the appearance of stretch marks while the skin heals.
This method is affordable, and the treatments are the safest and non-invasive solution to effectively repairing the skins ability to regenerate natural collagen without the downtime of having surgery!
