Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin. The elastin fibres are damaged and unfortunately the body fails to repair itself fully, leaving unsightly scars. Stretch marks can appear red and more mature ones tend to have a shiny silvery appearance. They are caused by tearing of the dermis, which over time may diminish, but will not disappear completely.
Stretch marks are often the result of the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes. Stretch marks may also be influenced by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, and hormone replacement therapy.
At Zapp Laser Studio we can significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks no matter how they got there with the safest and most effective laser for skin rejuvenation in the world.
