Stretch marks are a common cosmetic concern amongst men and women. Stretch marks appear as reddish to whitish, thinned out lines in the skin. Early stretch marks are often reddish in color, while older stretch marks are whiter in color. Stretch marks may result from skin expansion over a short period of time. For example, stretch marks often form during puberty and pregnancy because stretching of the skin cannot keep up with the growth of the body.
Stretchmarks can be a challenging problem to treat, and there are no perfect solutions for its complete removal. Topical treatments are not proven to be effective. Currently, the best available option for reducing stetchmarks is laser treatment. Red stretchmarks are more easily treated than white stretchmarks. Multiple treatment sessions are often required for the best results.
