Stretch marks are a normal part of puberty for most girls and guys. When a person grows or gains weight really quickly (like during puberty or hormone changes for older women), that person may get fine lines on the body called stretch marks.
Stretch marks happen when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it’s overstretched, the normal production of collagen which is the major protein that makes up the connective tissue in your skin is then disrupted. As a result, scars called stretch marks may form.
If you’re noticing stretch marks on your body, you’re not alone. Most girls and women have stretch marks, which tend to show up on the breasts, thighs, hips, and butt. Many women get them during pregnancy. And while they’re more common in girls, guys can get stretch marks too.
As a result, here at Skin Art Clinic we have a great range of treatments which in turn can help to reduce the visible signs of stretch mark appearance. With only the latest most innovative technologies we are proud to announce our new technology of the clinic – the Trilipo by Maximus treatment, which focuses on stretch marks and also cellulite, which is one of the biggest concerns in women today as well.
Stretch marks are difficult but not impossible to treat, we are looking for improvement not cure. With a number of other treatments we provide here such as dermaroller we can definitely target your concerns. As Dr Rachel Chew would say “not everyone responds to one treatment modality and no one treatment modality works for everyone”. At times, we need combination therapy to tackle your concern. This is why we have a range of treatments for even the same concern to ensure that we do have the right treatment for you.
