While these scars are most often associated with pregnancy, both men and women can develop stretch marks as a result of significant weight gain, weight loss, extreme body building, or even rapid adolescent growth. Stretch typically emerge in the following areas: abdomen, breasts, hips, thighs, upper arms and lower back. They occur when the dermis layer of the skin is stretched for an ongoing period of time, thus losing its ability to retain its shape.
But here’s the good news! Thanks to the latest medical spa therapies, you don’t have to live with unsightly stretch marks. Effective treatments are readily available. They’re FDA-approved, completely safe, and far more affordable than you might think. So consult with a licensed medspa clinician and have skin you’ll be proud to show off in a bikini, tank top, or nothing at all.
