What Are the Causes?
Stretch marks, or “striae,” appear when our skin is stretched abruptly. When skin stretches, collagen and elastin tend to rupture. In response, your body rapidly heals itself, causing these red or white marks to appear. Rapid weight gain and pregnancy are the most common causes of stretching.
What Are the Signs?
These streaky lines start off as purple or pink in areas of rapid size change (such as the abdomen during pregnancy). If left untreated, these marks may gradually fade to white but rarely disappear completely. Striae are scars on the body and are permanent without intervention.
Solutions for Stretch Marks
Some people try retinoid cream or other over-the-counter treatments to address their stretch marks. In some cases, these kinds of treatments may be helpful. However, they’re rarely effective in getting rid of these marks completely. At Lavana, we provide laser and radiofrequency options to help eliminate these marks for good.
