Stretch Mark Reduction The Woodlands
Torn connective collagen and elastin in the dermis causes stretch marks. They show as streaks or stripes caused when your skin changes shape rapidly. The most common places are the abdomen near the navel, breasts, upper arms, back, thighs, hips, and buttocks.
What causes stretch marks?
Rapid growth or rapid weight changes can cause stretch marks anywhere on the body. They are most likely to occur in places where larger amounts of fat are stored. Stretching of the skin causes the marks to occur in the dermis, the middle tissue layer that helps the skin retain its shape. They are common in weight gain, pregnancy, and adolescent growth spurts. Rapid expansion of the uterus and sudden weight gain during pregnancy may cause pregnancy scarring on the abdomen.
Your stretch marks may need many treatment sessions. Still, treatment may not completely resolve most stretch marks. Pulsed dye laser therapy can encourage growth of collagen and elastin in newer stretch marks. Furthermore, it is a safe, usually effective treatment.
