Most people can look back on the scars that they have on their body and remember a story that is connected to those scars. Sometimes the scars come because of an injury while playing a sport or having a good time with friends, and other times the scars come from not so favorable circumstances. Scars that most people would want to disappear forever include stretch marks.
Stretch marks appear on the upper arms, abdomen, thighs, and around the groin. These are the areas where the body stretches the most as a person goes through puberty, during pregnancy, or when a lot of weight is put on quickly.
It is estimated that up to 90 percent of the people on the planet have developed stretch marks. Thankfully, there are treatments that are available that can reduce the appearance of these marks. This means that stretch marks do not need to be a permanent part of a person’s appearance. One of the very best of these treatments uses the JetPeel system.
For professionals performing the stretch mark treatment, it’s important to remember that these marks are almost impossible to completely erase. The treatments can improve the texture and the appearance of the stretch marks, however, and result do vary.
One of the goals in getting rid of stretch marks is to get rid of the pigmentation. Another goal is to encourage the body to create more collagen and more elastin. This will give the skin a more natural and normal appearance.
Stretch marks seem to get more stubborn as they age. When a person has newer marks, they are typically easier to remove. However, as the marks become wider, as they become deeper, and as the pigmentation becomes stronger, it may become more of a challenge to get rid of them.
In addition to addressing the stretch marks, a person may want to address the skin around the marks. If there are scars, wrinkles, or other skin texture issues present, the JetPeel system can make these blemishes look significantly better.
