Stretch marks are a common problem faced by both men and women. They can appear post weight loss/gain and are often suffered by women post pregnancy. Some skin types are more susceptible to stretch marks than others and for some patients the marks can be quite noticeable as raised white or red lines found on the arms, stomach, thighs or breast area. They can be quite unsightly causing the patient not to be able to wear revealing clothes or swimwear.
Treating stretch marks has always been a very difficult task. When stretch marks first appear they look pinky-red and slightly raised. They then increase in length and acquire a dark purple colour and over time, become white and flat.
