Actually a form of scarring, stretch marks can form on many different parts of the body. Some of the most common include the stomach, thighs, hips, breasts, upper arms, and lower back. The marks form deep within the skin, in the dermis (the thick layer that gives skin its shape). Constant stretching causes the dermis to break down and leave marks on the outer surface. These marks typically start off red or purple and then turn glossy, leaving silver or white streaks on the affected area.
Whether your stretch marks are located on a prominent area of the body, or are only on display at the beach, you want them gone. Nonsurgical treatments can improve skin tone and texture, and help break up the scar tissue. While topical agents can help improve newer stretch marks with routine usage, they won’t make a difference to silver/white marks, and they take a long time to show results. Instead of spending every day treating your marks with lotions, set up a session at Radiance Medspa.
Depending on the location of your stretch mark, its size and quality, your skin type, and your age, we’ll recommend the treatment that is likely to yield ideal results.
