Stretch marks are quite a challenge to treat as they are a form of scar tissue. They occur when skin is abnormally stretched and expanded quicker than normal. When this happens, collagen and elastin fibres which are part of the skin’s support structure, break down or rupture, leaving “tears” in the dermis (the middle layer) of the skin.
Once formed stretch marks are very difficult to treat, so prevention is definitely better than cure.
The best way to prevent any stretch mark is to maintain or improve the elasticity of the skin so that the collagen and elastin fibres do not break.
Stretch marks creams are designed to improve firmness and skin elasticity. They also top up skin hydration levels and by applying these creams with a massage you increase blood circulation too. To resume, we need to help the skin help itself.
