Stretch Mark Reduction
The results show visual reductions of up to 80% with massive improvements
to the ‘feel’ of the marks. This application works on both old & new stretch marks.
Before explaining how stretch marks can be reduced, it is important to establish the causes of these unsightly marks and to explain exactly what these marks are.
Stretch marks are caused by a tearing of the dermis, or inner layer of skin. This tearing usually is associated with rapid weight gain, such as occurs in pregnancy, but hormones also influence the formation of stretch marks. This means stretch marks may occur during puberty or even healthy muscle-building. Stretch marks can show up anywhere on the body, but most commonly found on breast tissue, stomach and upper thighs. New stretch marks appear reddish in color, while older stretch marks fade to a silvery hue
Laser therapy for stretch marks works by stimulating the production of collagen in the skin. This promotes elasticity and makes the skin under the stretch marks thicker. Laser therapy also causes the fibroblasts or connective tissues cells in the skin to divide. This in turn reduces the appearance of stretch marks but despite improving the visual look of the marks does not remove them altogether.
