Stretch marks: what are they?
Best Stretch Mark Creams –
Stretch marks are welts that usually appear on the thighs and hips but also on the chest and stomach.
These marks on the body are due to several factors: weight gain or rapid thinning, mainly during pregnancy and after an extreme diet, or hormonal changes, especially during puberty.
These modifications impose too great a tension on the elastic fibres of the dermis, they can no longer ensure their action concerning elasticity, and they break.
How to treat stretch marks?
Of treatments for stretch marks exist as anti-stretch mark creams or oil; it is essential to identify their stage.
Stretch marks first appear red, a bit like a scar; this is essential to tackle the problem head-on because it is still possible to make them disappear or significantly reduce them!
Anti-stretch mark creams and oils, enriched with moisturizing agents, reduce the depth and appearance of the stretch mark.
The stretch marks then turn purple; it is then still possible to treat them because they not installed, but it will be necessary to use anti-stretch mark treatments more frequently (morning and evening) and with a more prosperous composition.
Stretch marks finally become white; they are then permanently installed. Creams can soften the skin and make the appearance of the skin more pleasant to the touch, but aesthetically the result will be almost the same.
You can always reduce the general appearance of stretch marks employing laser anti-stretch mark treatment performed by cosmetic doctors/surgeons.
If you have fair skin, you can perform a trichloroacetic acid peel: this technique consists of applying a gel to the skin that darkens before flaking. Count 5 to 10 sessions for an optimal result.
If you have dark skin, an ablative laser method container is complete.
The principle is to apply an anaesthetic cream before starting the laser for a session of twenty minutes.
This time, count 4 to 6 sessions before seeing the results.
