Although not harmful in any way, stretch marks can sometimes make us feel self-conscious.
If your stretch marks are less than 12-months old and still of a red colour, then there are a number of treatments that can help!
If they are older and have become more white in colour, there are still treatments that can help to improve the appearance.
What Are Stretch Marks?
Stretch Marks are caused when the skin rapidly stretches, usually as a result of sudden growth or weight gain (for example, during puberty or pregnancy). The stretching of the skin causes the middle layer of skin (the dermis) to tear; allowing the deeper skin layers to show through, forming Stretch Marks.
While nobody can claim to completely eliminate Stretch Marks, they can be made to look a lot better! Stretch Marks can occur anywhere on the body that the skin has been stretched, but they most commonly affect these areas:
- Shoulders (in those who do strength exercises)
- Tummy (Abdomen)
- Upper arms
