The cause of a stretch mark is as its name suggests; a mark that has been left behind as the result of stretched skin.
Stretch marks appear on the surface of the skin, and can start off as small, red or purple streaks. As these marks mature they will change in colour, becoming white or silvery looking. Their texture is very smooth, often feeling softer than the surrounding skin, and they can develop on any part of the body. Common places for stretch marks to appear include: upper arms, stomach, hips, thighs and breasts. They are commonly associated with adolescents, young adults, those who have gained (or lost) weight quickly and in pregnant women, as these are typical cases where the body has changed in shape and / or size over a relatively short space of time.
The cause of a stretch mark is as its name suggests; a mark that has been left behind as the result of stretched skin. A change in body shape will require the overlying skin to stretch in order to accommodate its new form. This can cause the middle layers of the skin to tear, allowing the deeper layers to show through. The skin will then repair itself using collagen, which is softer in texture and paler in tone. Stretch marks may not always lie flush with the skin’s surface, and in many cases they will develop slightly indented. Some people can be more susceptible to developing stretch marks than others, especially if their genetics or higher levels of cortisone in the body are contributing factors.
Many people use creams and lotions to help fade the appearance of stretch marks, with or without little effect. These products can be bought over the counter at many high street stores. But, if a more noticeable result is desired, then a more indepth approach may be required. At The Facebible we can perform a stretch mark treatment that involves the use of microneedling to help improve the condition of the skin. As stretch marks can vary in severity, depending on each person, the treatment will be tailored to suit the individual.
