Stretch marks are a type of thin scar that exists in the middle dermis layer of skin. They can be purple, red or white. Though as much as 90% of women experience stretch marks post pregnancy, these jagged lines can appear on men or women. They result from any situation where the skin is stretched, such as weight gain, body building or a growth spurt during the teen years.
Scars and stretch marks can happen to anyone and thankfully, there’s a treatment for everyone. Today’s laser treatments such as Fraxel work to rebuild the collagen and elastic structure around the marks and smooth their appearance. These treatments can help to reduce stretch marks on the breasts, abdomen, hips, thighs and upper arms.
