Millions of people have stretch marks – and there’s not one person who would not want to hide it. Unwanted stretch marks may prevent you from looking and feeling your very best. Even though stretch marks rarely cause any significant medical problems, they can be annoying, distressful be a cause of embarrassment. Stretch marks, also known as “Striae Distensae”, are found often in women (55%) than men (25%) — and they typically appear in the abdomen area, the breasts, outer thighs, buttocks, thighs and upper arms. Whether they appear after giving birth, a change in weight or just puberty, the quest to find a way to make them fade remains the same.
It is said that ‘Stretch marks can’t really be banished fully!’ at Skin City we say otherwise.
Stretch marks were considered as the most difficult to treat skin problems. However the latest technologies available offer a ray of hope. SkinCity has developed a unique combination protocol to treat stretch marks.
We will lead to the treatments later in the blog, but first, let us understand what Stretch Mark is.
- Stretch marks are not worrisome.
- They’re a form of scarring leaving the skin with an off-colour hue.
- Over time they diminish, but don’t disappear completely.
- They are the result of a sudden stretch in the skin.
- Growth spurts during puberty, pregnancy, weight lifting, weight gain or weight loss can be the cause.
- Anyone can develop them – women as well as men.
- They’re usually red or purple to begin with but fade to silvery white lines.
- The fresher marks are easier to treat and fade.

What Really Causes It?
The skin consists of three key layers, epidermis (the outer layer), dermis (the middle layer) and subcutaneous or hypodermis (the deepest layer). Stretch marks form in the dermis when the connective tissue is “stretched” beyond the limits of its elasticity due to rapid expansion or contraction of the skin from sudden growth or weight gain. The abrupt stretching causes the dermis to tear which allows deeper skin layers to show through, forming the stretch marks. It has also been suggested that stretch marks can be caused by high serum levels of steroid hormones induced for a local or systemic steroid therapy or Cushing’s disease. High steroid hormone levels can have an effect on the decrease of collagen. Stretch marks have been reported in patients with a chronic liver disease, HIV, cachectic states and anorexia nervosa.

- Coconut Oil
Coconut oil can help in minimize stretch marks. Coconut oil is known for having a long list of benefits, but in this case, its ability to improve skin elasticity, increase cell regeneration, and fight off infection are most important.
Because the loss of collagen often results in stretch marks, it would make sense that gelatin, one of the best dietary sources of collagen available, can help decrease the risk of stretch marks as well as minimize those that already exist.

It’s no surprise that aloe vera gel is on this list of helping reduce the scarring that stretch marks can cause. It has been known to make a positive effect on the skin as it’s an excellent source of vitamins, and an amazing natural moisturizer.
