Stretch Marks

They are a form of Scarring in the skin, mainly due to tearing of dermis. They are often happening after the rapid stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth or rapid weight changes. It can be affected by hormonal changes associated with puberty, pregnancy, bodybuilding, oral birth control pills , hormone replacement therapy etc. It can also occur when the body is producing extra cortisone, which is why people using corticosteroids are more susceptible.

Symptoms and signs

The appearance of stretch marks depends on the color of the skin; they can start out pink, reddish brown, brown, or dark brown, and fade over time to a more silvery color.

Most likely to appear in places where larger amounts of fat are stored.

Stretch marks rarely cause any significant medical problems, but are often a significant source of distress to those affected.

The histochemistry shows that the skin with stretch marks shows less DNA, protein, and elastin than the normal skin. They collagen shows slower outgrowth from fibroblasts, with low migration and proliferation rates. Keratinocyte proliferation will also slow down. So the wound made on the dermis due to the abnormal stretch of the skin , will take more time to heal, and will lead to scar formation .

Causes of stretch marks:

Stem cell peel in Stretch Marks

Stem cell peel is a biphasic peel which acts in the skin in two unique ways. The liquid phase will remove the topmost layer of the skin and by reaching the lower level, with the solid phase, it will stimulate the lower layer to regenerate.

It removes the damaged layer, and allows the new cells to come upwards and refresh the skin surface, targeting even the toughest of stretch marks . It helps in reduction in stretch marks by activating cell renewal and collagen production. The peel will exfoliate the outer layer, so that the lower layer can absorb active ingredients from the stem cell cream. The skin then begins repairing itself by creating new collagen in the papillary dermis, which fills out hollows in the dermis due to the injury made during stretching . Collagen, elastin and skin strength is also enhanced for a fresh, youthful appearance.

The stem cells from green apple, designed in the form of peel and cream, will stimulate new blood vessels also to be formed, giving more nutrition and support to the coming cells.

With multiple treatment, stretch marks can be reduced to give the skin a clear and fresh appearance.
