Are you embarrassed to wear shorts or short-sleeved shirts in the summer? Does the idea of wearing a bikini make you automatically want to cover your abdomen and thighs? If stretch marks are keeping you covered up every summer, you should really visit Juvia Med Spa in Colleyville today.
Did you know that stretch marks are a form of skin damage and that, when left untreated, they “heal” as scar tissue? In fact, that’s why you’ll sometimes see red or bluish stretch marks turn into white stretch mark scars.
Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched at a faster rate or to a more extreme degree than it can expand. This is why you won’t see stretch mark scars when you gain or lose a little bit of weight. However, when you gain a significant amount of weight very rapidly – as in the case of pregnancy – you will see red, blue, and/or purple marks that look almost like scratches on the skin.
If you have early-stage stretch marks like these, we can recommend a number of products that boost vitamin C and vitamin E in your body to help heal torn skin tissue without scarring. If you have white stretch mark scars, we will most likely recommend a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, and/or laser treatment.
The best treatment for your stretch marks will greatly depend on their size and severity. That said, each treatment works in basically the same way. They all strip away the top layers of dead, damaged skin cells and scar tissue. You may notice an improvement in the appearance of your stretch marks as early as your first session, but to completely eliminate them, we will most likely need to schedule a few sessions.
