Stretch Marks Treatment In Jumeirah, Dubai

Stretch marks are very common. Anyone can get them, but they tend to affect women more than men. About 9 out of 10 women get stretch marks during pregnancy, while around 7 out of 10 females and 4 out of 10 males develop stretch marks during puberty. Rapid weight gain, family history, an underlying health condition, or prolonged inappropriate use of corticosteroid medication are also common factors.

Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin that appears when there is rapid stretching of the skin. They are a long narrow streak line that often starts with red to purple shades and gradually fade to silvery-white colour. Stretch marks are most commonly located on the breasts, hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, and flank.

What You Can Do

During pregnancy it is almost impossible to prevent the development of stretch marks.  However, there are some ways to help reduce their appearance in other circumstances.  First is by avoiding rapid weight gain. Getting plenty of exercise along with a healthy balanced diet that is rich in vitamins and minerals (particularly vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc) will help maintain good blood circulation and skin elasticity.

There are a few Stretch Marks treatment options available.  While there is little medical evidence to show that these Stretch Marks treatments work to completely remove stretch marks, some treatments may help to reduce them.

  • The use of moisturiser creams, gels and lotions that are available in pharmacies and supermarkets. By massaging these products into the skin, circulation can be improved.

What We Can Do For You

  • Cosmetic Surgery for stretch marks is rarely advised for stretch marks alone, and it is an expensive treatment that can cause considerable scarring. However, stretch marks can be removed during the abdominoplasty or tummy tuck procedures that we perform, if the striae are on the tummy area.
