Many of us are plagued with stretch marks. Whether they are from pregnancy, weight gain or other factors, stretch marks are unseemly. If you’ve recently undergone an outstanding weight loss, you’ll no doubt notice stretch marks more than ever. There are treatments available to deal with the appearance of stretch marks, but many wonder, are they permanent? In order to answer that question, you need to understand how stretch marks are formed. How do stretch marks come to be? Our skin is composed of three layers. The layer on the surface, the one which we see, is the epidermis. The layer beneath that, which is responsible for holding everything in its right place, is the dermis. When the dermis is stretched due to weight gain, puberty, pregnancy, etc., it can suffer from minor tears, causing the epidermis to become misshapen.…

During your pregnancy, around the 25-week mark, you may have noticed the appearance of stretch marks. You probably figured that they would go away after you gave birth.

When you put on weight, your body produces elevated doses of glucocorticoids, which tell your skin to make less elastin fibres and collagen. These are two key components to healthy, young looking skin. When your body grows, the skin tears in certain areas, and after it heals stretch marks will have developed. Initially they’re likely to be red in colour, but will gradually fade into white or…

There are various over-the-counter creams and lotions that claim to naturally reduce stretch marks with the assistance of topically applied chemicals. But the truth is, there is very little research supporting or debunking these claims, regardless of their method of targeting stretch marks.   Fortunately, there are treatments that actually work on the otherwise permanent marks on your skin. What Are Stretch Marks? The skin is composed of three layers, and although it’s not apparent, it’s constantly growing like your hair and nails do. The epidermis is the side that’s exposed, the dermis lies in between, and the subcutaneous layer is simply fat. When the body expands quickly, the skin can’t stretch quickly enough and the layers tear. Fresh stretch marks are red or purple, while old ones are white or silver coloured. Laser Stretch Mark Removal is the Best…
