What Are Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are a streak-like scar that forms when you experience rapid body growth. This causes your skin to stretch quickly and as a result, a rupturing of the collagen and elastin which provide support to your skin. While stretch marks — which look like streaky, rippled lines in the skin — are most common in women, anyone can get them if they experience growth that causes significant stretching of their skin. They initially have a red, purple, or pink appearance, before fading over time, while the rippled lines remain. You can develop stretch marks in the following areas:

  • Breasts
  • Abdomen/Belly
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

What Causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks commonly develop in women during pregnancy, due to the extensive stretching that occurs as your body grows to accommodate the baby. Elevated hormone levels also weaken the fibers in your skin, making stretch marks even more prominent. In addition, you may be more likely to develop stretch marks if you have a family history of them. Other common causes of stretch marks include:

  • Obesity
  • Growth spurts during puberty
  • Bodybuilding
  • Consuming corticosteroid medications
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Rapid weight gain
  • Medical conditions such as Marfan syndrome or Cushing’s syndrome

Stretch Mark Treatment Options

At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we offer the latest and most advanced stretch mark treatment options. The right solution for you will depend on your unique needs and goals. During your consultation, our dermatologists will recommend the best treatment plan to deliver the beautiful results you desire.

SmartXide DOT CO2 Laser

CO2 lasers deliver exceptional skin resurfacing results, and they are very effective at improving the appearance of stretch marks. The SmartXide DOT CO2 laser removes tiny amounts of damaged skin throughout the treatment region, stimulating the production of collagen and providing skin tightening benefits in the process. The DOT technology is highly precise, and the skin surrounding the treatment area won’t be impacted, ensuring a rapid recovery.

In addition, our dermatologists can customize the pattern of the dots and the intensity of the treatment, based on the severity of your stretch marks.

After you heal, your skin will have a more even tone and texture, providing a more uniform appearance.

Morpheus8 Microneedling

Microneedling is an effective way to improve the appearance of stretch marks. We use the Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling device, which creates tiny injuries in the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. The radiofrequency heat generated during your treatment will also deliver skin tightening benefits.

Pulsed Dye Laser

In situations where your stretch marks are a red color, pulsed dye laser treatment may provide an effective solution. This laser is frequently used to fade red skin discoloration.

During your treatment, the laser energy will heat red blood vessels contained in your stretch marks, causing them to break apart and be absorbed by your body’s natural processes. This will restore your natural skin tone. The precision of the Cynergy595 pulsed dye laser ensures that the skin surrounding the treatment area is unharmed.
