Signs and Symptoms of Stretch Marks

Those having stretch marks are likely to experience the following symptoms:

  • Slightly depressed, scar-like lines on the skin
  • Discoloured, narrow bands on the skin of varying colours like red, pink, blue, purple, brown, or black
  • Gradual turning of coloured marks into glossy, silvery, or white streaks
  • Itchiness
  • Irritation.

Causes of Stretch Marks

When there is quick stretching or shrinking of the skin, the structural fibres break apart. Collagen and elastin are the two skin structural protein fibres that lie beneath the skin surface. Collagen provides the skin with strength, support, and structure. Elastin makes the skin elastic, allowing the skin to stretch up to a limit. Stretch marks appear in sites where elastin is broken.

How can Stretch Marks Be Treated?

Various treatment options are available so far that work to make stretch marks appearance less noticeable. If newly formed stretch marks are timely treated, optimal results are possible. The mature stretch marks are more challenging ones to treat. Furthermore, stretch mark treatments are even designed to help alleviate the itch and irritation. But it is important to note that there is no single stretch mark reduction option to date that will work for everyone. Also, many products give false claims for stretch marks reduction.

Best Stretch Marks Treatments are offered at DermoRita Skin Clinic, one of the best skin clinics in Greater Kailash, Delhi.

At the clinic, the dermatologist offers the following best treatment options for stretch marks reduction:

1. Topical skin care products

There are many creams, gels, and lotions that are clinically proven to treat stretch marks. When they are gently massaged on the stretch marks, they are more effective in reducing early stretch marks. The desired results appear only if such products are applied daily for several weeks.  

Dr. Sarita Sanke, stretch marks treatment doctor in New Delhi, prescribes the best-working stretch marks reduction products that contain hyaluronic acid and/or tret-inoin- a retin-oid. Hyaluronic acid helps keep the skin plump and fill in skin indentation. Ret-inol is a Vitamin A derivative that helps improve skin’s laxity, texture, and hydration levels. 

2. Laser skin resurfacing 

In this treatment, a short, pulsating, and intense beam of light of a specific wavelength is directed onto the stretch marks using a medical-grade laser. As the laser light is precisely passed through the skin having stretch marks, the affected skin layers peel off to leave healthy, fresh skin. Simultaneously, the laser heats the skin's dermal layers to boost the growth of fresh collagen proteins that create smoother, firm skin. An immediate improvement is seen in the appearance of the treated skin after the treatment. But the improvements continue to be noticed for up to a year and last for several years. Optimal results are possible with multiple laser sessions scheduled a few weeks apart.

3. P-R-P therapy

P-R-P (plate-let-rich plas-ma) or growth factor therapy is an extremely popular skin rejuvenation treatment that can help reduce stretch marks. P-R-P is a blood component containing natural growth factors and other essential proteins that encourage healing at the cellular level. When it is injected into the skin it improves blood flow to the skin and promotes collagen production that helps reduce stretch marks. The treatment process involves drawing out of the patient’s blood, centrifugation of collected blood samples, extraction of the pla-telet-rich pla-sma using sterile injection, and then injecting of P-R-P injection into the skin dermis.

4. Microneedling with P-R-P

In microneedling, the patient’s skin is micro-punctured with fine needles. These micro-injuries in the skin stimulate fresh collagen and elastin fibre production. Three to six treatments are usually needed to get optimal results noticed in 4-6 treatments. For better stretch mark reduction, P-R-P solution is applied to the skin after microneedling. The P-R-P reaches deep into the skin through micro-channels created by microneedling devices and provides more benefits.

Prevention of Stretch Marks

There is nothing that can be done to ensure no development of stretch marks. However, the below-mentioned ways can help lower the risk of stretch marks appearance.

  • Hydration- It’s recommended to keep skin well-hydrated by daily drinking adequate water and limiting intake of caffeinated drinks. This way the skin remains soft and less likely to develop stretch marks.
  • Healthy Diet- Every dermatologist recommends having a diet that promotes healthy, clear skin. The diet must include food items that are loaded with Vitamin A, C, and D; zinc, and protein.
  • Exercise- Through regular workouts, blood circulation gets better which helps in collagen remodelling. Eventually, this helps keep skin firm and elastic.
