Stretch Marks

1. WHAT ARE STRETCH MARKS?

Stretch marks are breaks in the skin when the skin is stretched. They are seen during puberty, pregnancy, sudden weight gain and as a side-effect from topical steroid use. There two types of stretch mark:

  • Recent or red stretch marks
  • Late or white stretch marks

2. WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR RED STRETCH MARKS?

Stretch marks are difficult to treat. They respond better to treatment when they are new and red. The pulse dye laser targets the blood vessels in the red stretch marks and reduces the redness. It also releases growth factors from the vessels and this in turn smoothes out the breaks in the skin.
