The sight of stretch marks and loose skin is nothing short of a nightmare for women, and yet these marks are inevitable. Stretch marks are a group of streaks or stripes formed on the skin, usually caused by distension of the skin, due to weight gain. Stretch marks are almost always accompanied with loose skin. Skin tightening treatment is the answer.
These marks could be a result of weight fluctuation, pregnancy, consumption of certain medication, Crushing’s syndrome or Marfan’s syndrome. When the dermis of the skin that contains collagen and elastin fibers, is suddenly or continuously stretched, these fibers are ruptured, causing stretch marks and loose skin.
At first these marks are red or purple, they then turn into a silver-white color. They are most commonly found on the abdomen, but they can also occur on the thighs, buttocks, breasts, shoulders and upper arms. These marks are more commonly found among women than men. Treating stretch marks and loose skin is challenging, and home remedies and camouflaging techniques only offer a temporary solution.
