Layers of Skin

All three layers of your skin are affected when stretch marks appear. With the unnatural quick expansion of the skin the layers all suffer some type of trauma.
The three layers, epidermis, dermis, and the subcutaneous stratum, all have to be treated to see improvement.

Getting Stretch Marks

There is a very narrow choice of methods available for removing these ugly scars. The most popular is stretch mark removal which has many advantages.

For one thing, stretch mark removal is fairly pain free. It’s not a miracle cure and you will have to put time into the process. Multiple visits to the cosmetic office will be needed.

With laser treatment, the damaged skin is encouraged to repair itself. It encourages the natural synthesis of collagen.

Am I a Good Candidate for Stretch Mark Removal?

One of the largest groups that has stretch mark removal issues are women that have gone through a pregnancy. It’s obvious to anyone who has taken a gander at a nine month pregnant woman and wondered how the body and skin can contort to accommodate a baby – or two or three! This quick growth and resulting stretching of skin tissue results in scarring called stretch marks.
I’m not saying that this applies across the board. I’ve met one or two lucky individuals that had smaller babies, they had smaller bellies, and maybe 2 small stretch marks. Unlike the 10 pound babies I carried. You can just imagine the lower belly stretch marks I have left.
So one consideration, if you are thinking of getting stretch mark removal, is the decision not to put yourself through any more pregnancies. That’s requirement number one. You don’t want to invest the time and money into a procedure that will be undone by carrying another baby.
