Stretch Marks & Cellulites

Stretch marks & cellulite can be a major concern for many. Our customized treatments can help repair, smooth and tighten affected areas.

Weight fluctuations, growth spurts, and pregnancy can cause rapid stretching that tears the dermis resulting in uneven, indented skin and purple striated marks.

Stretch Marks & Cellulites

Stretch marks form when the dermis layer of the skin is stretched beyond its limits of elasticity, tearing the connective fibers that give skin its structure. This commonly occurs during growth spurts, pregnancy, and significant weight changes.

When the body expands rapidly, the dermis struggles to keep up, resulting in perpendicular tearing of the collagen and elastin networks. These streaks of stretch marks start off reddish or purplish due to blood vessel damage under the skin.

Stretch Marks Cellulites Concern

Eventually, stretch marks fade to a silvery-white color, but the indented streaks remain. They typically develop on common areas such as the belly, breasts, hips, thighs, and buttocks.

Cellulite also results from decreased skin elasticity that causes fat to push through the connective tissue, creating a dimpled, uneven texture. It is exacerbated by poor circulation and inflammation which can be contributed by hormones and genetics.

What Are The Causes of Stretch Marks & Cellulites?
