Stretchmarks are parallel fusiform strands of thinned, wrinkled skin, first swollen, protruding, then disappearing. They give an impression of unesthetic, visible lines especially in side light. Their appearance is usually symptomless, however, it can be connected with delicate itching, less frequently burning or pain. Stretchmarks appear when the skin is stretched beyond the limits of its natural elasticity. The skin does not manage to produce fibers that could fill the increasing surface. Thus cracks appear and they are filled with scar tissue in the form of atrophic scars.
Reasons for occurrence:
- quick body growth,
- pregnancy,
- steroid preparations,
- quick muscle mass growth,
- quick fat tissue growth,
- hormonal factors.
People at the greatest risk of stretchmarks are:
- obese people,
- teenagers during puberty,
- pregnant women and women in menopause,
- bodybuilders,
- people with frequent weight swings,
- people on frequent low-caloric diets,
- people taking steroid drugs,
- people with genetic predispositions.
The fight against stretchmarks is extremely difficult as those are atrophic changes pertaining to the dermis and the subcutaneous tissue; thus they are very deep.
One must realize that if we do not do anything about stretchmarks, they will be more visible as we grow older and our skin loses pertness and elasticity.
Therefore, in the fight against stretchmarks the quickest reaction possible is important, best right after their appearance when they are still red. Improvement varies in different people. It depends on genetic factors and skin quality (pertness, elasticity, lifestyle, eating habits).
The best results in treatment of stretchmarks are achieved by application of concomitant therapy:
- needle mesotherapy,
- Pearl Fraxel laser,
- endermology.
