Stretch marks treatment

Stretch marks treatment

Skin stretch marks are linear fusiform streaks of thinner wrinkled skin. Initially protuberant and swollen, over time, they become slightly smaller.

Stretch marks are changes to the dermis. They develop when the functioning of fibroblasts (cells responsible for the production of inter-cell substances) and protein production: collagen and elastin become impaired. Proteins regulate the correct structure and specifics of the dermis. When the skin becomes excessively stretched – e.g. during pregnancy, puberty, due to obesity or rapid body mass increase, the regular network of fibres is broken resulting in stretch marks.

Depending on the causes, three different clinical varieties of skin stretch marks can be distinguished.

Striae migrant are changes in patients who use corticosteroids in specified regions. They are usually single stretch marks with a tendency to become longer.

Striae transverse generally appears in the lower back area where the amount of fat is relatively lower and is not exposed to stretching. The changes are horizontal, and in some cases, an excessive elastin synthesis is observed in the changed areas.

Striae gravidarum are changes developing in pregnant women.

The effects of the stretch marks skin treatment depend on the duration and advancement of the condition.

The best results can be achieved when a therapy is introduced as early as at the inflammation stage (up to about 6 months) and before a scar forms. 

At a later phase, the effectiveness of various therapies is limited and comparable to scar treatment effects.
