More About Our Stretch Marks Treatment

Stretch marks are streaks across the skin caused by extreme stretching of the skin due to lack of elasticity. A stretch mark is actually a scar where the skin is ruptured and then heals.
Not everyone develops stretch marks. Genetics can be at play, or fluctuating hormone levels in the body.

Some typical causes of stretch marks:

Growth spurts that happen in puberty
Rapid weight loss or gain
Weight training when you have rapid muscle growth

The appearance of stretch marks on the skin could signal hormonal imbalances which are treated using HRT – Hormone Replacement Therapy. Dr. Croland can test for this, and administer treatment to regulate your hormones. If the stretch marks are from pregnancy or rapid growth, they are typically treated using a laser and/or combination of other skin resurfacing techniques. Dr. Croland has many happy patients who have watched their stretch marks fade and disappear within a reasonable time frame after a series of treatment sessions.
