Stretchmarks

Stretch marks are a very common problem, with 70-90% of women having stretch marks. Many people opt for laser treatment for stretchmarks. Stretch marks are scars in the epidermis caused by a tearing of the dermal components, which makes a person lose elastin and collagen and appear as scars on the surface of the skin. After the tear, they are red and can be treated with a laser; however, older stretch mark scars seen on the breasts, hips, tummy etc. will appear white.  During the procedure, the laser will heat up the damaged tissue, seal broken blood vessels and improve the connective fibers in the dermal layer. Your skin will produce new collagen which fill the stretchmarks from the bottom up
