What are stretch marks? How do they look?

A stretch mark is a type of linear, curved or horizontal scar that develops when our skin expands or shrinks quickly. The sudden change causes the rupture of collagen and elastin fibres in our skin. These fibres support and maintain the firmness and elasticity of our skin. When these are broken down, they result in stretch marks. Stretch marks occur on the legs, back, stomach, arms, and hips. Stretch marks can show different colours depending on the age of the scar. The early stretch marks may appear red and the late stretch marks may be white.

Most common causes of Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are not exclusive to women, and people of all genders can get these marks on the thighs, buttocks, arms, lower back and abdominal area. Stretch marks may develop during- growth spurts that happen during puberty, pregnancy, rapid weight loss or gain, rapid muscle growth during weight training in gymnasiums.

Stretch Marks after Pregnancy

Stretch marks after pregnancy are particularly common. Nearly three in four women develop stretch marks on their legs, abdomen, hips, and other areas of the body affected by weight gain during pregnancy.

Most women are found to develop stretch marks during pregnancy due to a gain in body weight. The affected area may not be only limited to the abdomen, but may even include breasts, thighs, legs, buttocks, and any other area that may have excess deposition of fat.

Laser treatment for stretch marks is helping many women to get rid of these unwanted marks. It allows them to get their confidence back with healthy, flawless skin and a more youthful appearance.

Other Considerations

Even though laser treatment can offer more satisfactory results than is possible with any other type of treatment, we ensure that our patients have realistic expectations from their chosen treatment. We expect our patients to be in good health to realize the desired results from the treatment. It is important to discuss your medical history with us and clearly mention the medication list before the treatment is started.

Treatment for stretch marks in Delhi

Our treatment involves a fractional laser that does not burn or cut the affected area, but thin layers of skin are eliminated around the stretch marks. In a process called ablation, high-energy ultraviolet laser beams break the molecular bonds that disintegrate the tissue.

The skin exposed to treatment heals quickly and healthy layers of skin grow bereft of stretch marks.

Recovery

After the treatment is over, patients will find the affected area tender and red due to the removal of scarred skin. The healing in the case of the majority of patients takes just a few days. Patients who undergo more extensive treatment may require some weeks to recover.

Effectiveness and Cost

Results may vary from person to person depending on how old or new stretch marks are. Our consultants will advise you with the best laser stretch mark removal treatment plan including the number of sittings you would require as well as the maximum impact you can derive from it. The type and duration of treatment will determine the cost and this will not be the same for every individual. Considering the success of laser treatment, we can only say this therapy will be worth every penny.
