Till now, you might’ve thought that Vitiligo is the worst skin condition ever seen. But there’s something that’s even worse, i.e. stretch marks. For those who don’t know stretch marks are lines or bands caused by the stretching of the skin.

This is how it happens?
Our skin is strong and elastic. However, if stretched too far or too quickly, its supporting tissues get damaged and the underlying blood vessels show up. As a result, the skin appears red or purple on the affected areas.

While at an early stage these stretch marks are red or purple, they eventually fade into white or silver color. But the marks don’t go away.

How do stretch marks affect a person?
Stretch marks aren’t painful. However, they result in emotional trauma. People having them suffer from low self-esteem and depression.

Hence, it’s very important to have a cure for them and that’s what we do that Cosmo Care & Hair Clinic. We treat people suffering from stretch marks and help them regain youth.

Treatments to cure stretch marks
While there’s no specific treatment to fully cure stretch marks, it’s possible to make the less visible using the following treatment procedures:

1. Retin-A
According to a study, Retin-A can slightly diminish the stretch marks on your body.

How does it work?
The chemical penetrates the upper layer of the skin and rebuilds collagen. This way, the stretch marks become less visible.

Buy Retin-A only on prescription. It’s not for everyone. Especially, pregnant women should stay away from it.

The drug also results in side effects like redness and peeling on skin.

2.Laser or light therapy
Laser light is used to reducing the appearance of stretch marks.

How does it work?
As pulsed dye lasers and intense pulsed light is shed on the affected skin, the collagen production increases and the stretch marks diminish.

You will need at least 20 treatments for a significant improvement which is very costly. Also, make sure you get the procedure done from a skilled cosmetic surgeon only.

3.Platelet-rich plasma with ultrasound Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is one of the most popular treatments to cure stretch marks on skin and increase collagen production.

How does it work?
In PRP therapy, we use a platelet-rich plasma taken from your blood and use it for increasing the collagen production on the affected area. This has been considered as the best treatment for stretch marks till date. Over 70% of the participants have witnessed improvement.

What else you can do to reduce or prevent stretch marks?

  • Use creams, oils, or topical skin products like cocoa butter, olive oil, and almond oil.
  • Keep your skin moisturized. This will make the stretch marks more visible.
  • Protect your skin from the sun. Otherwise, the exposure might make the scars more visible.
  • Follow a healthy lifestyle
  • Avoid sudden weight gain or loss

Important caution: Use sunscreen while going out into sun. Direct exposure to sunlight increases the chances of stretch marks.
