WHAT ARE STRETCH MARKS?
Stretch marks are skin lesions that appear when the elastic fibres are under too much tension. Stretch marks are red when they first appear, and white when they have been present for longer.
WHO SUFFERS FROM STRETCH MARKS?
Stretch marks appear in women when the skin has been weakened or subjected to strong tension such as during pregnancy or weight gain. In men, the apparition of stretch marks is less common, however may happen in case of considerable weight gain or fast muscular mass gain.
HOW ARE STRETCH MARKS TREATED?
A photobiomodulation with medical LED lamp session can significantly improve stretch marks (reduction of depth and wrinkled effect) and repigmentation. To treat stretch marks, it is strongly advised to prepare the skin with a derma-roller to perform a superficial abrasion. It is also possible to apply creams and lotions to allow the skin to remoisturise and regain some elasticity to prevent new stretch marks from appearing.
