Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are scars that appear when our skin stretches or shrinks rapidly. Collagen and elastin, which support our skin, rupture as a result of the sudden change. Stretch marks may form when the skin recovers. They occur as indented streaks on the abdomen, breasts, hips, buttocks, and other parts of the body. They’re quite prevalent in pregnant women, particularly in the third trimester. Stretch marks aren’t painful or harmful, but they can make your skin look unattractive.

Causes

Pregnancy

Stretch Marks affect between 50% and 90% of pregnant women during or after delivery.

Rapid Weight Gain

Stretch marks are caused by gaining a lot of weight in a short period of time.

Puberty

In young people going through puberty, rapid growth is common. Stretch marks may result as a response to this.

Corticosteroid use

Long-term usage of corticosteroid creams and lotions can lower collagen levels in the skin. Collagen helps to tighten and support the skin, and a lack of it can lead to stretch marks.

Treatments

Laser and Light therapy

Evidence suggests that laser therapy may be effective. Laser therapy has consistently decreased the appearance of stretch marks by 50–75 percent in experiments. Light beams are used in laser therapy to break up scar tissue and stimulate damaged tissues. A person will need up to 20 sessions of laser therapy over several weeks, according to the Dermatologic Surgeon, to notice a 20–60 percent reduction in the appearance of stretch marks.

Massage

By increasing circulation and stimulating cell and tissue growth, massaging with topical products or certain creams and oils can help decrease stretch marks on places like the breasts and stomach.
