While stretch marks typically come from increased volume under the skin, such as weight gain or pregnancy, they can come at any age regardless of weight changes. Whatever the cause, patients looking to remove stretch marks can find the answer at the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center with our laser stretch mark removal.
While stretch marks can vary in their severity, they are all a form of scarring on the skin. When the skin is stretched more quickly than its ability to produce collagen, small tears occur, and the resultant scars are seen as stretch marks. Stretch marks can also be caused by hormonal changes, such as pregnancy. Below are the main causes of stretch marks:
Stretching of the skin in the abdomen as well as hormonal changes are both responsible for creating stretch marks.
Especially when it is rapid, weight gain can stretch the skin apart, causing stretch marks. An example of this is bodybuilding, when the body can experience rapid, dramatic changes in volume.
Oral or injected steroids or corticosteroids cause hormonal changes that may contribute to stretch marks.
Cushing’s syndrome and other adrenal gland diseases can sufficiently alter the hormones so as to create stretch marks.
I can’t believe it! My stretch marks had been keeping me away from the beach and swimming pools for years. I was even self-conscious around close friends. When I came into Lasky, I immediately knew I had found the right place. They took so much time with me, I almost forgot that I was there for treatment. Within the first treatment, my stretch marks were so much less, and they’ve only gotten better.
