Caesarean & Stretch Marks Removal
Stretch marks or striae, are a common type of scars. While stretch marks occur to most pregnant women, they also affect some adolescent females and males.
Caesarean marks on the other hand are due to the surgery performed on the women for childbirth.
Human skin is a delicate organ composed of three layers: the top layer - epidermis, the middle layer - dermis and the lower layer - subcutaneous fat. One of skin's most remarkable abilities is to stretch. It is the collagen and elastin in the dermis layer that gives skin its strength and elasticity.
At certain times, when weight gain occurs like what happens during pregnancy, the skin is over-stretched. After being stretched over a prolonged period of time, the collagen and elastin breaks and the skin actually tears. Over time, these little tears and tiny rips heal, however, they often leave scar tissue known as stretch mark.
There are two common types of stretch marks: white and red. While older stretch mark tend to be white or silver-colored, newer stretch mark is usually reddish or purple in color.
The complete reversal of stretch marks is difficult, however, it's possible to have their appearance improved by gently resurfacing the skin and effectively stimulating the collagen. On the other hand C-marks can be successfully reduced to very minimal levels.
