The Science behind Stretch Marks
The skin is made up of three layers:
- Epidermis (the outer layer),
- Dermis (the middle layer)
- Sub cutis (the inner layer of skin, consisting of fat and connective tissue).
Stretch marks occur in the dermis, when the skin is pulled beyond its elastic tolerance resulting in tears of the dermis. Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin with an off-colour hue.
Stretch marks occur when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it's overstretched, the normal of collagen (the major protein that makes up the connective tissue in your skin) is disrupted. There is bleeding into the skin, which causes the redness in the stretch marks. There are tears of the dermis and over time these can diminish but not disappear completely.
Growing adolescents can get them on their backs, with the appearance of a series of horizontal lines.
When these red stretch marks become white, then scaring of this tear is complete and stretchex® on its own will not help. It requires dermarolling to induce bleeding into the valley of the tear before strechex® can be effective.
