Stretch marks occur when your body grows faster than your skin can regenerate to accommodate the growth. When your skin stretches, long, thin lines appear. Stretch marks are often a dark red or purple color that eventually fades to white.
These are some common conditions that cause stretch marks:
- Growth spurts during puberty
- Sudden weight gain
- Breast implants
- Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder
Microdermabrasion is a treatment using a carefully-controlled stream of tiny crystals to blast away the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother skin. Research indicates that microdermabrasion can be an efficient way to treat newly developed stretch marks before they turn white.
Microdermabrasion is most effective when combined with professional skin peels.
