Stretch marks are a form of scarring found on the surface of the skin. Their appearence often goes by the colours silver, red, brown, black, purple or light pink, and are in the form of lines or streaks. They are most commonly seen on the stomach, upper arms, legs, hips, back and the bottom.
Stretch marks, also known as striae, will slowly fade over time, but unfortunately, they will never entirely disappear. They are a very common skin defect which most carriers deem as unappealing. Because of this, skin treatments for stretch marks are some of the most sought out in the world.
The Causes of Stretch Marks
Collagen Thread Lifts for Stretch Marks
We recommend a collagen thread lift for stretch marks due to their skin renewal properties. In order to counteract the appearence of such markings, new collagen production is needed for skin rejuvenation. The main property of this treatment being collagen, a vital protein of the body, ensures that skin is left revitalised and clear.
Collagen, as well as elastin, are two very crucial components of the skin, bones and muscles. They essentially keep the body’s structure intact, while also keeping the skin tight, firm, smooth and youthful. As we begin to age, our body declines in both, meaning our skin has less of a chance of counteracting such consequences to the surface like stretch marks.
Upon the procedure, a clinician will insert medical-grade threads into the dermis of the skin. Once attached to the skin tissues underneath the problem area, they will begin to reposition them; this causes trauma to the surrounding areas, triggering the body to start its natural healing process.
During this process, fibroblasts are produced, an element of the structural framework. In turn, they create new collagen cells which work alongside Neocollagenesis and Hyaluronic Acid to heal the wound. This continues over the course of several months once the fibroblasts bank the new collagen cells. While the healing proceeds, the skin and all its properties will become re-ignited with the protein.
