Products for Stretch Marks

It is estimated that up to 90% of women will suffer from stretch marks at some stage, most commonly during puberty or pregnancy, leaving most of us wondering how to remove stretch marks.

Stretch marks, also known as striae, are a form of scarring of the connective tissue in the dermis during extreme stretching of the skin, such as during weight gain/loss, puberty, pregnancy or even during muscle growth.

Hormones can also cause stretch marks by preventing the fibroblasts in our skin from forming collagen and elastin fibers, which are necessary to keep skin taut. If this supportive material is compromised, it can lead to dermal and epidermal tearing if the skin is stretched forcefully or rapidly.

Despite claims to the contrary, stretch mark removal is impossible because the dermis has been torn. Cosmetic companies make millions marketing their various stretch mark creams claiming complete stretch mark removal, but this is patently untrue. The reality is, a stretch mark is a scar; like all scars, their appearance can be improved, but not completely removed, not even with laser treatment.

However, if collagen production to the area is stimulated, stretchmarks can lose their reddish hue and become almost invisible.
