What Is The Strech
Striae, also known as Stretch Marks, are lines or streaks on the skin that occur when the inner skin layer is stretched thin and loses its elasticity. They can be pink, purple, or white in colour (depending on their age). Stretch marks appear when the skin stretches, and there aren’t enough new cells to sustain the stretched skin.
For removing stretch marks, laser therapy, micro-needling, plasma therapy, and chemical peel treatments are available and depending on the severity of stretch marks, your dermatologist will recommend the treatment.
