WHAT CAUSES STRETCH MARKS?
Stretch marks are the streaky lines that develop on the skin, especially on the abdomen and legs. They are caused by the rapid expansion of skin usually during pregnancy or during weight fluctuation. This sudden stretching of the skin actually results in the tearing of the dermis (below the surface of the skin). These marks are notoriously difficult to treat, but thanks to laser technology, stretch marks can be repaired without causing further damage to the skin.
While we love that celebrities like Chrissy Teigen are rocking their tiger stripes with pride, we also understand wanting a little extra help with their appearance. At New England Skin Center we encourage you to choose confidence; that means exploring treatments that will help you feel beautiful.
