What Causes Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks are a form of scarring that result from tears to the connective tissue of the skin caused by rapid growth or overstretching of the skin. They form when your skin quickly stretches to accommodate weight gain, generally from pregnancy. These lines can vary from person to person in appearance and color with some being a bright red to a less noticeable shade of your skin color. Their appearance usually depends on how long you’ve had them, where they are on your body, and your skin type, but one thing they have in common is that for most people, they are a source of embarrassment.

Anyone can develop stretch marks but women are generally affected more, especially young pregnant women. Other factors that can cause stretch marks include:

  • Genetics or a family history of stretch marks
  • Pregnancy
  • Being overweight
  • Quickly gaining or losing weight
  • Using corticosteroid medicine
  • Breast enlargement surgery
  • Certain genetic disorders such as Cushing’s syndrome or Marfan syndrome

Most stretch marks appear on the breasts, abdomen, hips, buttocks, and thighs. At Avalon Laser, we can treat all of these areas so that you can feel more comfortable showing off your skin.

DermaPen Treatment

The DermaPen treatment is a nonsurgical procedure in which microneedles stimulate the skin’s natural production of collagen by lightly puncturing the top layer of the skin. This process helps jump-start the skin’s ability to heal, resulting in excellent rejuvenation benefits. This treatment has been proven to aid in the reduction of skin issues such as stretch marks, facial scars, wrinkles, and more.

Other benefits of the DermaPen treatment include:

  • Nonsurgical in-office treatment
  • Less aggressive than laser skin resurfacing
  • Can be used on the Legs, abdomen, back, chest, arms, and face
  • Little to no downtime
