LASER FOR STRETCH MARKS
What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are lesions that skin suffers as a result of different causes. Its characteristics are always the same: they appear in the area of the hips, legs, buttocks and breasts in the form of long lines with varying color depending on the time that has passed since their emergence. If they are new, they usually have a color ranging from pink, red to soft violet. If, on the contrary, they are old, they will have lost color until they become white.
What causes them?
Their causes are really diverse, being the most common, the hormonal change that occurs during puberty. Sudden weight changes produced, for example, by a diet, illness or stress, will also cause the appearance of stretch marks. As well as carrying out strenuous physical exercise. Pregnancy, especially after the third month of pregnancy, can also be a cause. And, finally, some diseases or hormonal imbalances such as Cushing’s syndrome, obesity or hypercortisolism.
Treatment of stretch marks
Contrary to what many people believe, stretch marks do not heal alone with time, they need specialized treatments such as laser treatment for their disappearance. In fact, if we do not apply this treatment when they are still fresh (that is, before they become white) eliminating them from our skin will be really hard. Fortunately, the treatment they require is very simple and unaggressive. The patient need only apply on the affected area a product from the Estryses family, depending on their characteristics and needs.
