Up to 90% of women are prone to developing stretch marks in pregnancy
Your skin had a baby too. Higher levels of hormones during pregnancy help your skin to thin so it stretches easily, but sometimes, the rapid growth of your baby causes your skin to stretch too much, and stretch marks form.
Change in weight can change your skin
When you experience sudden weight gain, skin can become overstretched, leading to stretch marks. Unfortunately, losing weight doesn’t mean you’ll lose the stretch marks. In fact, weight loss can sometimes cause stretch marks to appear more noticeable because the skin becomes looser and less taut.
Growing up can cause stretch marks
Adolescent growth spurts are marked by sudden increases in height, weight and muscle mass. During these periods of rapid growth, girls and boys can develop stretch marks in many places on their skin, including the shoulders, legs and arms. Your teenager is not alone, and there is something that can be done about stretch marks.
Stretch marks first appear as dark or discolored lines, but tend to gradually fade to a lighter colour. Stretch-marked skin can also appear rippled or puckered in texture because it loses its elasticity when it stretches. You’ll usually find stretch marks on the abdomen (especially near the belly button), breasts, upper arms, underarms, thighs (both inner and outer), hips and buttocks.
You’ve probably heard plenty of stretch mark prevention tips. When it comes to prevention, a moisturizer can’t hurt, but should not be looked at as a surefire way to avoid stretch marks.
You have them. What now?
Though they don’t pose a health risk, stretch marks can cause their fair share of self-consciousness. There are various products designed to improve the appearance of stretch marks, including lotions and creams, laser treatments, and dermabrasion. Some people even opt for a surgical procedure known as a "tummy tuck" to remove lower abdominal stretch marks.
Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy is a cost-effective way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, diminish discoloration and improve texture in 4 to 12 weeks.
