Stretch marks, also referred to as striae distensae, are the streaks on the skin formed in the body sites subject to continuous skin stretching. They have different textures and colors as compared to the surrounding rest of the skin. Typically, newly formed stretch marks appear pink, red, or purple colored, which fades over time. As they become mature or old, they appear whitish-grey.
Most commonly, stretch marks appear on the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, chest, or arms. They are not serious or painful medical concerns but rather aesthetic skin problems that most people are frustrated or embarrassed to live with and wish to get removed. Women have higher chances of having stretch marks than men.
Stretch marks are formed when the skin is stretched beyond its elasticity over a short period, after which it cannot return to its original state. The rapid skin stretching leads to:
Stretch marks are often seen in women post-pregnancy; in bodybuilders, sportspeople, or gym trainers who have been doing muscle workouts; in those who have been experiencing rapid weight gain or loss, or in adolescent males or females hit by growth spurts.
The definite cause of stretch marks is still under research. However, it is thought to be a result of genetic predisposition, increased cortisol levels, and mechanical shear effects from rapid weight gain or loss. In certain cases, people might get stretch marks because of high levels of steroid hormones resulting from the treatment with steroid medications or illnesses like Cushing’s Disease.
According to Dr. Ravali Yalamanchili, if one is looking for an effective treatment, one must consult a dermatologist who can help by providing them with effective treatments that can reduce all types of old and new stretch marks. One can receive the best stretch marks treatment in Hyderabad at Neya Dermatology & Aesthetics Clinic.
Types of stretch marks
All stretch marks are not alike. They are of various kinds depending on how long they are present on one’s body, what causes them, where they are located, and the skin type one has. Based on their appearance and formation, they are of mainly two kinds:
Other kinds of stretch marks include:
Stretch marks need not trouble one forever. Over time, they often go less noticed with or without treatment. There is no such way to make the stretch marks completely disappear. However, with a personalized multi-modal approach, one can see significant improvements in the appearance of stretch marks, allowing one to be more confident and less self-conscious during their intimate moments, when in swimwear or bikini, and in general everyday life.
Laser treatment: Lasers are the most effective remedy to reduce the appearance of immature/newly formed stretch marks. Fractional lasers that direct a laser beam into the skin can help lessen the depth of stretch marks to some extent. These can be of two kinds: Ablative lasers and Non-ablative lasers. Ablative lasers help resurface the skin by removing the top skin layers or vaporizing the scarred tissues to reveal the underlying clear, smooth, healthy, youthful skin. Non-ablative lasers damage or disrupt the deeper skin layers without harming the superficial skin and further intensively stimulate the increased production of collagen and elastin fibers in the dermal skin layers, where stretch marks are formed, resulting in an improvement in their appearance. The procedure is quick and comfortable, with minimal side effects and without downtime. Typically, 4-6 laser sessions are required after every 4-6 weeks to restore the skin’s firmness, smoothness, and consistency and achieve optimal results.

Other contributing factors to stretch marks include:
The majority of patients require three to five therapy sessions for optimal outcomes.
