What Causes Stretch Marks?
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, stretch marks are a form of scarring. When the skin undergoes rapid growth or shrinking, the underlying collagen and elastin matrix are disrupted and damaged. When the skin attempts to heal these weakened collagen structures, stretch marks may appear.
Why The Ointments and Creams You’ve Used Might Not Have Worked
Since stretch marks are an issue affecting the collagen of the skin, ointments, and other topical solutions typically don’t affect collagen production within the skin. One study found no statistical difference between topical ointments and placebos regarding stretch mark prevention or severity.
What Treatments Does Skintology MedSpa Offer?
All of the treatments offered at Skintology MedSpa for stretch marks address the issue’s root: collagen. Skintology MedSpa has treatment methods backed by science.
