Stretch marks can occur in any of us typically due to wear and tear of the skin. Most commonly seen in weight fluctuations. Stretch marks are not essentially due to “stretched” skin – stretching maybe one of the triggers and it is actually scar formation which eventually occurs.
Causes of Stretch Marks
- Growth Spurt
- Sudden Weight Gain
- Anabolic Steroid Use
- Working out with weights
Treatment for Stretch Marks
A dermaroller is a unique rolling device studded with very fine, medical-quality needles. It’s used to puncture small holes deep into the layers of the skin (called a micro-pore procedure). This stimulates new collagen growth, which in turn improves skin texture and reduces dimpling.
In contrast to ultrasonic or injectable treatments, dermaroller has a long lasting impact on the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Collagen production is prolonged which greatly stimulates the skin’s renewal and improves the appearance of the skin.
The Long pulsed Laser is effective in reducing the reddish colour of stretch marks effectively and stopping some of the inflammation that causes these marks. In addition, collagen and elastin fibre production are encouraged to make the skin look more natural. Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing targets white-colored stretch marks, which may not experience improvements similar to that of red stretch marks. The appearance of white-colored stretch marks can be improved moderately.
Radiofrequency therapy for stretch marks is a non – invasive, safe treatment to improve skin appearance. Radiofrequency treatment includes collagen production which is highly effective.
PRP for stretch marks treatment
The PRP is injected directly to stretch mark surface, which are a form of scarring caused by tearing of the dermis associated with rapid stretching of the skin. Through PRP injections, the growth factors released by platelets will promote tissue healing and regeneration, which improves the appearance and texture of the affected surface.
Topical creams or ointments are prescribed to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Some of them are available over-the-counter and are less intrusive. Regular application of topical ointments can lighten the tone of stretch marks but they may not completely remove them.
