Stretch Marks

Whether you might be struggling with weight gain or weight loss, you may be concerned that your journey will result in stretch marks.

There are three common causes of stretch marks associated with weight gain and weight loss:

Gaining Weight: When the body expands due to rapid weight gain, skin must stretch to compensate for the body’s growth. When skin stretches too much, too quickly, it can result in tears. The tearing of the dermis—the middle layer of your skin—results in what is often referred to as stretch marks.

Losing Weight: Although stretch marks are often associated with weight gain, loosing weight rapidly could have similar effects. When losing weight, skin should be relaxing—not stretching. However, losing weight rapidly often results in excess skin, and excess skin can weigh down other areas of skin and cause stretching and tearing.

Gaining and Losing Weight: Often, stretch marks develop when gaining weight but are not visible until the weight is lost. In this case, weight gain caused the stretch marks, but weight loss made the stretch marks visible on the body.

Stretch Marks can be somewhat avoided by maintaining skin tightening and/or body contouring throughout your weight loss/weight gain. However, if you are specifically looking to target only your stretch marks, skin rejuvenation is a great option. With a group of multiple sessions, you will notice results and fading of your stretch marks within a short period of time.
