Category - Stretch Marks

Stretch marks can be the most stubborn skin conditions. Also called striae, these stretch marks resemble crooked lines that are irregularly located on the skin. These are scars that are caused when the dermis, which is the deeper layer of the skin, is damaged by overstretching due to weight gain. When the excess weight is removed, the skin goes back to its usual state but the scarring remains. Although natural and not dangerous, stretch marks are unsightly and unnatural. The scars are off-color and they stand out on the skin.

Stretch marks are a problem for women who have given birth, as well as for men and women who lost weight rapidly. Other factors that lead to the development of stretch marks include puberty, hormonal surges, rapid weight loss and rapid weight gain. These unsightly dermal scars can be found around the belly area along the waist, as well as on thighs, buttocks, breasts and hips. We can say that stretch marks are a side effect of weight loss, and are therefore unavoidable.

This scarring is not age-dependent, and even younger adults can develop them. These also occur regardless of gender, although women may be more prone to develop stretch marks because of the rapid decrease and increase in hormones every month.

This category presents products and other therapy options that may lead to the reduction or total elimination of butt stretch marks, stretch marks on the stomach, and those that developed during pregnancy. Some treatment options are meant to remove stretch marks altogether, while others are meant for dealing with the discoloration of these stretch marks so that they aren’t as evident on the skin. You will find a variety of suggestions, including diet-related ones and those that require the help of a medical professional. There are many ways to get rid of stretch marks after they’ve developed, and there are also ways to prevent stretch mark development.
