The skin may undergo continuous or progressive stretching because of the growth in the body due to any reason. During the period of intense body growth, the skin can’t stretch enough to keep up because of low collagen and elastin which are responsible for keeping the skin firm and elastic. This results in the appearance of stretch marks in the middle skin layer (dermis).
The treatment of new stretch marks focuses on minimizing skin swelling, redness, and irritation. On the other hand, for the mature ones, the treatment objective is to promote collagen and elastin production in the skin, hydrate the skin, and reduce inflammation.
