STRETCH MARKS: CURRENT TREATMENTS ARE EFFECTIVE.

Stretch marks are linear lesions that usually occur in regions where the skin is subject to stretching, such as the breasts, abdomen, buttocks and thighs.

Stretch marks are considered “scars” because they present deep dermal damage. They mainly occur due to significant stretching of the skin, such as in situations of rapid growth or, or weight gain in adolescence and pregnancy. They are classified as recent (red stretch marks) or old (white stretch marks).

It is very important that stretch marks are treated early, because the sooner treatment starts the better the outcomes. Moreover, early treatments are cheaper and less painful.

Treatments aim to improve the appearance of stretch marks, both recent and old, by stimulating the formation of collagen and restoring the appearance more similar to normal skin. Recent stretch marks may be treated by dermabrasion. Even during pregnancy, this technique is safe for the mother and for the baby. Old stretch marks can be successfully treated by fractional lasers, thermal fractional system, microneedling and other technologies.
