Your skin consists of three main layers that work together, but can be affected differently by the environment and changes in your body. When the middle layer of your skin stretches too quickly, often because of weight gain or pregnancy, the collagen can break down. Stretch marks are essentially painless tears in the middle layer of your skin.
When collagen breaks down the underlying blood vessels show through and appear red or purple against your skin. Over time, these marks fade to white or silver as the blood vessels heal and narrow, but your collagen production decreases.
Stretch marks resemble mild scar tissue, which you may consider an unacceptable flaw in your skin, especially in a noticeable area like your abdomen. You’ll find the best stretch mark removal at Esthetica MD in Englewood, New Jersey. Dr. Dimitry Rabkin provides the latest treatments to give you an improved appearance that looks as natural as possible.
Who’s at Risk for Developing Stretch Marks?
The exact reasons some individuals have more trouble with stretch marks isn’t well-known. There are factors that contribute to your likelihood of developing these marks, such as:
If stretch marks are common in your family, there’s a good chance you may develop them as well.
Individuals with high levels of steroid hormones in their systems often seek stretch marks removal, as steroidal hormones weaken collagen.
Carrying a child to term, especially when it occurs at a very young age, often causes stretch marks.
Like hormones, the use of steroids or steroid creams increases the risk of stretch marks.
Significant weight gain, either during pregnancy or at any other time, can lead to stretch marks.
Conditions such as Cushing disease, adrenal gland disorders or Marfan’s syndrome are factors in developing stretch marks.
Stretch marks aren’t dangerous or painful. While there are many topical ointments marketed to combat or treat stretch marks once they appear, they rarely do the job. While stretch marks never really go away, you can find effective methods to reduce their appearance. Visit Esthetica MD to speak with Dr. Rabkin to discover what may help your case.
Treatment Options for Stretch Marks
The goal of most treatments to remove stretch marks is merely to reduce their overall noticeability. Short of surgical options to remove large areas of skin, there just aren’t any solutions to permanently remove stretch marks. But several treatment options significantly minimize the condition, including:
This method targets the upper layers of skin and helps stimulate the skin and collagen to tighten.
Using tiny needles that puncture the skin, this method harnesses your skin’s natural healing properties to build more collagen and help hide noticeable marks.
Combining your own platelet rich plasma , this cutting-edge treatment harnesses the benefits of your own natural healing process to rebuild collagen and elastin fibers of your skin. Platelet rich plasma, injected into the middle layer of your skin, signals your body to jump-start the healing process.
Non-invasive and minimally-invasive treatments have much lower risks compared to surgery. Fibroblast plasma skin tightening is making great strides in harnessing natural healing methods and high-end technology. Schedule an appointment at Esthetica MD for the best care and effective results.
