Stretch Mark Reduction
Stretch marks are fine lines on the body that occur from tissue under your skin tearing from rapid growth or over-stretching. They are quite common and do not cause any significant medical concerns but are often not thought very aesthetically pleasing. Stretch marks commonly appear on the abdomen or breasts post pregnancy or to the thigh, buttock and breast area in adolescents going through growth spurts. Some medical conditions and prolonged use of certain medications are also implicated in their development.
The skin becomes flattened and thin with a pink colour when a stretch mark is developing. Also, the skin can occasionally be itchy and then reddish or purplish lines develop. Over time these lighten to become whitish or flesh-coloured. Stretch marks occurring in adolescents become less visible over time and generally require no treatment. In other cases, if stretch marks are a cause of concern then Fractional Laser can offer dramatic improvements. Please call 0113 870 0000 to book your free consultation.
