What are stretch marks ?
Stretch marks are a natural occurrence that occurs when the skin starts to lose its elasticity. This results in slightly white, reddish or sometimes purplish marks along the skin surface. This due to the fact that the skin cannot regenerate fast enough when there is sudden weight gain or loss, thus resulting in breakage of the elastic fibers under the skin , which are seen as stretch marks.
Any prevention ?
Although, there is no prevention techniques that are guaranteed to stop the formation of stretch marks, the best way to halt the breakage process is to always keep the skin moisturized and hydrated. This can be done by applying a heavy cream or lotion that provides moisturisaton. Another way to keep the skin healthy is to drink lots of water and liquid to make the skin clean and smooth and also to prevent the itchiness that comes along with stretch marks.
How to fade them away ?
Stretch marks usually start of as reddish or purplish marks that eventually turn into slight white or silvery lines as it slowly fades away. One of the best methods to ensure that the strtechmarks are properly faded away is by using a mixture of onion extracts and hyaluronic acid during the initial stage of the stretch mark.
Another method of removal of stretch marks is by using a retinoid. A retinoid stimulates the growth of collagen underneath the external skin layer that can help in proper fading of stretch marks.
For more effective and strong treatments one can also follow laser treatments. Using laser can increase the collagen rate and also lead to a healthier skin as the blood flow is less dilated where the laser has been used. One of the less popular ways in by using a method called as dermabrasaion where a thin layer of skin is removed. This is less popular as there is no big change in the final result.
Stretch marks are not a harmful occurrence, but they can dampen the aesthetics of the body which can have an effect on the confidence level of the person. Stretch marks not only occur among pregnant women, but they also appear on people who have experienced sudden weight gain or weight loss. So, this is a commonly occurring problem among people of all walks of life.
