Stretch mark is such a common problem for millions of people around. Stretch marks or striae is a form of skin scarring that is related to pregnancy, obesity, puberty and short-term weight gain from bodybuilding or other physical activities. Stretch marks may arise when the dermis or the middle layer of the skin (that is responsible for maintaining the shape and elasticity of the skin) is stretched more than it can endure. The connective fibers in the skin eventually start breaking up and this, as a result, starts disrupting the collagen production and cause scarring. These stretch marks may not really cause any adverse effect on the health but can surely prevent anyone from looking and feeling the best.
However, regardless of the reason for the stretch marks, there are various methods to treat stretch marks. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion, a surgical tummy tuck procedure and a laser stretch mark removal technique can remove stretch marks completely or partially. Among all of these procedures, the laser stretch mark removal procedure is an advanced treatment that will help to gain back the natural looking smooth and clear skin. Hence it is preferred by majority people and is a non-invasive procedure and requires no downtime.
