Should you be among the millions of people struggling with poor skin-image and stress because of stretch marks, you will be relieved to discover Cosmetic Derma Medicine’s Stretch Mark Treatment, one of the most popular of the Clinic’s therapies, treating the largest number of patients in Greece, using the most advanced methods.
Even though completely preventing stretch marks from forming is illusory or nearly impossible to achieve, this does not mean we should make compromises and learn to live with them, thanks to contemporary Aesthetic Medicine and Stretch Mark Treatment.
Stretch marks, also known as striae distenase, are colored stripes or lines that develop on the skin and treating them has always been a challenge. This type of dermatological scarring occurs when skin is pulled by rapid growth, quick weight changes or hormonal-related disorders that cause a decrease in collagen and elastin levels, resulting in irreversible stretching of the skin. Stretch marks tend to affect more women than men – especially during pregnancy – and, in most cases, tend to be more noticeable in areas where large amounts of fat are stored.
Stretch marks, depending on skin color, can appear as white, light pink, reddish-brown or purple blemishes, while the most common areas affected are the abdomen, décolletage, buttocks and thighs.
There are a range of Stretch Mark Treatments, including moisturizing creams, gels and lotion – mostly with preventive action due to limited penetration – and topical injection of Vitamin A (retinoids) and Diamond Microdermabrasion.
The most effective proven Stretch Mark Treatments, some of which are exclusively performed at Cosmetic Derma Medicine, are:
Stretch Mark Treatment results, although impressive, are highly dependent on stretch mark type, depth and maturation – thus, the number of sessions needed will vary based on the severity of the condition and treatment method.
Pregnancy is undeniably the most beautiful time in a woman’s life. But noticing the first stretch marks along with pregnancy weight and hormonal changes are often responsible for women stressing over getting their pre-baby bodies back. As regards to post-pregnancy stretch marks, it is best to start treatment as soon as possible, while they are still fresh and red. Depending on your post-pregnancy stretch mark shape, depth and maturation, the experienced Dermatologists of Cosmetic Derma Medicine will tailor the ideal Stretch Mark Treatment protocol best-suited to your needs.
