Stretch Mark Removal Chicago
It doesn’t matter how they developed stretch marks are hard to live with and have an impact on how you feel about your body. Pregnancy is the most common reason these form, but stretch marks can also become a problem after weight loss, or in some cases because of genetic factors.
Both men and women can see these deep grooves or light puckered marks on the skin develop. There are several treatment options available to lessen or remove these from the stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs, or hips, and restore a natural smooth appearance to the skin.
How do stretch marks happen?
Usually, striae or stretch marks will show up as a vertical strip of recessed skin. These usually start out as deep red or purple and fade over time, but can leave the skin with a puckered, irregular appearance. The puckered area is uneven and ridge-like, making it look much like a scar. These marks develop when the collagen in the skin breaks down or stretches beyond the point it can return to a normal smooth shape. Hormones such as glucocorticoids work against those who are pregnant or who undergo long periods of weight gain or loss. These hormone levels increase the risk of collagen breakdown underneath the skin.
Stretch marks removal in North Center Chicago
Only a few types of stretch marks are helped with creams or other similar remedies. Deeper marks with ridges and grooves within this skin will need treatment such as dermabrasion and laser treatments. Often for the most natural and smooth effect possible this treatment will need to be spaced out over time.
Our professional staff can also offer other methods of stretch mark removal such as a tummy tuck. The tummy tuck can permanently remove stretch marks below the navel quickly, and also remove excess skins that can cause deep folds.
