Stretch Mark Treatment in Montreal

Stretch marks are small scars with the appearance of thin lines or small welts that appear mainly on the buttocks, thighs, breasts or stomach. They appear when the skin is subjected to a sudden extension, which goes beyond its limits of elasticity. It is an inflammatory reaction caused by the rupture of collagen and elastin fibers in the dermis.

Stretch marks are the result of too rapid and excessive stretching of the skin.

The circumstances of the appearance of stretch marks are varied:

  • weight gain in adolescence

  • Rapid growth in children

  • Pregnancy

  • Weight fluctuation

  • Medicines (cortisone…)

  • Stress: cortisol increases during stress, this hormone plays a role in the appearance of stretch marks.

Thus, apart from any pregnancy, we can see stretch marks appear in thin women.

When sagging skin is associated with stretch marks, tightening the skin indirectly improves the appearance of the stretch mark.
