What are stretch marks?


Stretch marks are bands of parallel lines that appear on the skin due to sudden weight fluctuation, and muscle building. When touched by the fingers, stretch marks feel slightly ridge or indented on the skin. The most common areas that affected by stretch marks include:


  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen


What are the causes of stretch marks?


Stretch marks usually happen due to stretching of the skin and due to an increase in the cortisone levels in the body. Cortisone is a naturally produced hormone in the body by the adrenal gland. When the levels of this hormone increases in the body, then it makes the skin lose its elasticity. If an individual is looking for stretch marks reduction in Bangalore, then they can visit at Dr. Dixit Cosmetic Dermatology. The clinic provides the best treatment and technology to treat this skin condition.


Some common reasons for stretch marks include:

  • Many females experience stretch marks due to pregnancy as the skin stretches during pregnancy as it is making room for the new developing baby.
  • Stretch marks also appear when a person, whether its male or female, loses or gains weight rapidly.
  • Certain medications can also cause stretch marks by reducing the ability of the skin to stretch.
  • Certain diseases such as Marfan syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome can also cause stretch marks by increasing the levels of cortisone in the body.

What are the symptoms of stretch marks?


When stretch marks start to develop, then that area of skin looks pink and thin. It may feel slight irritation or itching. Initially, these marks appear as raised streaks, wrinkly and can be pink, purple, red, brown in color. With time, these streaks eventually fade up and become silvery or white.


What are the medical treatments available for stretch marks?


There are several ways to minimize the appearance of stretch marks, some of the best treatments available at Dr. Dixit Cosmetic Dermatology include:


Microneedling treatment with Growth Factor Treatment: This treatment aims to induce collagen in the skin, which improves the texture of the skin. The additional growth factors also help in the multiplication of fibroblasts, which helps skin to recover quickly.


Tixel treatment: This is a new revolutionized treatment that helps to deliver controlled levels of heat to the fibroblasts that create micro-injuries in the skin and stimulate the production of elastin and collagen in the skin.


Fractional CO2 laser and Fractional Microneedle RF treatments: It is a minimally invasive technology that uses very fine sterilized needles to cause microscopic injuries in the skin that helps in stimulating collagen production, which tighten the skin. This treatment is given with growth factor treatment in cases where it is difficult to treat stretch marks.
