Unsightly stretch marks getting you down?
Stretch marks can be a big dampener on a women’s self confidence as they can appear in a number of different areas on the body. Although drinking water and moisturising will help, it will not remove marks completely. Treatments like ‘Genuine Dermaroller’ are a great way to tackle stretch marks and revitalise skin.
Rapid stretching of the skin from weight gain or sudden growth are the primary causes of stretch marks. Although it appears like the marks exist on the surface of the skin it’s actually a series of tears in the middle layer of skin (known as the dermis) which show through on to the skin’s surface.
In addition to the tearing, many people are uncomfortable with the small red blood vessels which show through on to the surface of the skin that have resulted from the tears. This is also the reason why fresh stretch marks are often purple or red in colouring. Over time the blood vessels will contract leaving only the fatty tissue visible under the skin and so eventually the stretch marks take the form of a silvery-white colour by which time they are harder to treat.
