Our skin is designed to adapt through its elasticity, but sometimes it is stretched a bit too far – this is when stretch marks occur. Stretch marks appear when the skin is pulled by quick growth or over stretching caused by rapid weight gain. They can happen to anyone regardless of age or gender however while they can affect everyone, their presence can severely affect self-confidence. Dermaroller® treatment can be used to remove stretch marks.
The science behind stretch marks is that when skin is over-stretched the middle layer of the skin (dermis) breaks in places and allows the deeper layers to show through. As the layers break the production of collagen in the immediate area is disrupted allowing for stretch marks to appear. Dermarolling can be used as a remedy to improve the appearance of these marks.
What does a stretch mark look like?
A fresh or new stretch mark develops as a reddish or purple line and may appear indented or have a different texture from the surrounding skin. Fortunately as time passes the colour fades and turns lighter; some may even disappear after a while. Although both genders can get stretch marks, they are more prevalent in women and can appear on the breasts, thighs, hips and buttocks. Stretch marks can also appear during pregnancy.
Getting rid of stretch marks
So how to remove stretch marks? Dermarolling can be used to significantly alleviate the appearance of stretch marks so that they are almost unnoticeable. By using a dermaroller®, micro needle columns are rolled across the damaged area of the skin creating tiny injuries. These micro injuries stimulate the production of collagen which repairs any damage done and rejuvenates skin.
