Presence of stretch marks apply limitations the type of clothes you can wear, as they make you self-conscious. most often stretch marks appear as long parallel lines, red/purple to start with and in due course become white/silvery permanent white.
Why are stretch marks caused?
Most popular reason of stretch marks formation is rapid stretching of skin, commonly due to rapid weight gain, pregnancy, excessive exercise & hormonal changes. Stretch marks can occur anywhere however, commonly seen in women, on the belly, lower back, breasts, inner thighs, hips and upper arms. When the skin gets stretched, it causes disruption if Dermis (middle layer of skin), and stretch marks are formed. Strain on the connective tissue fibres steer to collagen disruption, which then gradually results in marks on the skin.

How can stretch marks are treated?
As a rule, more earlier you start the treatment, better would be the outcome for sure. Stretch mark treatment is a process that encompasses using a focused ray of light to discard of the thin layers of the skin neighbouring those marks. As you visit our Skin clinic in Rewari, we will evaluate the severity of your condition and accordingly design a customised treatment plan for you.
Here are your options:
Laser resurfacing is considered as the Gold standard for stretch marks treatment. At SQIN Laser and Cosmetic Surgery Skin Clinic Rewari we use ALMA CO2 PIXEL LASER, is FDA approved and is best suited for Indian skin. The Pixel CO2 laser, fractionates or pixelates the light of laser beam into thousands of tiny shafts. These tiny shafts of light penetrate the deeper skin layers. These tiny shafts of damaged skin tissues are readily restored by our natural wound healing mechanism, renewing the stretch marks in the process.
PRP also known as platelet rich plasma. PRP Therapy consists of drawing your own blood, and processing to plasma from it. PRP is rich in growth factors and has remarkable regenerative and healing powers. It is then injected in the stretch marks area to stimulate cell regeneration and rejuvenation, which improves the appearance of stretch marks. Platelet Rich Plasma PRP therapy is generally used in combination with CIT to enhance the treatment results.
Collagen induction therapy (CIT)
Collagen induction therapy, Microneedling or derma roller therapy is very worthwhile way to improve your appearance of stretch marks. At SQIN Laser and Cosmetic Surgery Skin Clinic Rewari we use Dermapen®, world’s leading and best Microneedling instrument. It is proven to give uniform and noticeable results starting from the first session itself. As this process creates unnumbered small injuries on the skin through microneedles. As a natural phenomenon the skin works to repair these injuries, it repairs the old tattered tissues thus improving the appearance of stretch marks.
This involves injecting vitamins, amino acids and growth factors directly into the affected area. It gradually stimulates the cells and tissues to form collagen and elastin, which repairs and rejuvenates the connective tissues, smoothing the stretch marks. Mesotherapy is normally combined with CIT for better clinical results.
