How Does SilDerm Work?
What Causes Stretch Marks?
Pregnancy: Pregnancy is a big factor in Stretch Mark development, particularly after the sixth month of pregnancy. Hormones that are produced by the body to help soften ligaments ready for birth also soften fibres in the skin increasing the risk of developing Stretch Marks.
Gaining Weight Quickly: Stretch Marks are more likely to occur if a lot of weight is gained during a short period of time. Regular dieting and then subsequent rapid weight gain is the main cause of Stretch Marks.
Puberty: Young people tend to grow very fast during puberty which puts extra strain on the dermis. Males often get Stretch Marks on their shoulders and back, whereas females tend to get them on their hips, thighs and breasts.
Family History: If you have close relatives who have Stretch Marks (such as your mother) the risk may be greater.
How Do Stretch Marks Develop?
Stretch Marks occur in the dermis when the skin is stretched considerably over a short period of time, e.g. puberty, pregnancy, rapid weight gain.
This rapid skin stretching causes the dermis to tear in places to relieve the pressure.
As the dermis tissue starts to repair itself it lacks the smooth regular appearance of normal skin – hence the raised appearance of Stretch Marks.
Ultimately, Stretch Marks are scars and should be treated in the same way.
