The appearance of stretch marks can be very discouraging particularly to those in the process of losing weight. These discolored marks tend to appear despite our best efforts to control the tightness of our skin. Reducing stretch marks through the use of oil and frankincense can sometimes help, however, these options have not been proven to show consistent results. Serum and topical solutions exist as well, but their effectiveness is equally questionable.
For the best stretch mark reduction treatment, consulting with an experienced aesthetician is the most effective option. RKM Aesthetics & Wellness is here to provide you with professional treatments to help you look your best.
What Are Stretch Marks?
Striae or stretch marks are areas of scarring and discoloration that appear along with certain parts of the body. Stretch marks are most common among pregnant women, but can also appear during adolescent growth spurts and due to rapid weight gain. These marks happen when the body experiences an increase in cortisone. When levels of this hormone elevate, they reduce skin pliability, causing it to stretch. Cortisone prevents fibroblasts from forming collagen and elastin fibers as well, leading to the ridges in the skin typically associated with stretch marks.
