Stretch Marks and Scars

Stretch Mark or Striae

Striae, also known as Stretch marks occur when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although our skin is fairly resilient, when it’s overstretched, the normal production of collagen is disrupted. As a result, stretch marks can form. A number of causes promote the formation and appearance of stretch marks, with the main causes are Rapid weight gain or loss / Rapid body growth during puberty and Pregnancy.


A scar is formed when the skin heals after an injury. Many factors determine whether an injury will result in a scar, including one’s age, gender, and ethnicity, coupled with the severity and location of the trauma.

There are different types and degrees of scarring that can be treated :

Dark Scars and Light Scars – Scarring is a normal response from the skin when healing an injury with enough depth to extend into the dermis. Some time dermatologist call this color of the scar as PIH (Postinflammatory Hyperpigmentation)

Raised Scars – Some wounds heal abnormally and produce scar tissue that can make scarring more prominent. This excessive scar tissue is put into two categories:

  • Keloid Scars tend to grow outside the border of the initial injury and can become large, painful or itchy.
  • Hypertrophic Scars are raised but not to the same degree as keloid scars, they commonly occur on bendable areas of the skin (back, knees and elbows) and result from the stretching of wound edges while healing.

Indented Scars – Indented scars are the most common scar type after acne healed. This is caused when not enough scar tissue has formed and therefore does not match up with the surrounding skin.

Laser removal of scars and stretch marks treatment is a minimally invasive and advanced approach that gives excellent results with minimal recovery time. Laser scar and stretch mark treatment use short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure.
