Spending Money Is Required To Remove Your Stretch Marks

By Jen Hopkins

Scars and stretch marks form when wounds are healed either on the surface or beneath the surface of the skin. People generally understand the formation of scars on the surface of the skin as visible wounds were seen. Once this wound heals by collagen deposition, the formation of scars is very evident.

Scars formed beneath the skin such as stretch marks are harder to understand. This is because no visible wound is seen on the surface of the skin, but scars are still able to form. Such scars form due to the excessive stretching of the skin, which results in the tearing of its dermal layer. It is visible on the surface as the upper layer of the skin has also become thin enough to see the underlying layer.

When this layer heals, it also forms scars similar to wounds that were formed above the skin. But because of the decreased thickness of the skin above this area, the scars can also be seen on the surface. Such formation of scars is what we refer to as stretch marks.

Because of the many studies done and advances in science, there have been many ways developed in getting rid of scars. One way is through the use of scar removal creams, which help eliminate these scars by stimulating cell regeneration. This allows new and younger cells to replace the old ones occupying the scar. Exfoliating effects may also be incorporated in these creams to help increase the rate of scar elimination.

Other ways that people commonly use are home remedies such as cocoa butter and other creams. Home remedies rely more on the moisturizing properties of different creams, as well as different vitamins to help the skin produce younger and better looking cells. Others still have antioxidant effect which help prevent damage and get rid of damaging free radicals on the skin.

If you really want to get rid of these unwanted marks on your body, the best way to do this is through treatments that are made especially for these types of skin problems. One such treatment that you can undergo is microdermabrasion. This method will get rid of scars by physically of chemically removing them from the skin. This way, the scars are literally sloughed off from the skin so that no traces will be left.

Another way is through laser treatments, which work similarly to microdermabrasion. But instead of sloughing off the scar, it burns away the scar so that all that will be left is your normal skin. The normal regeneration of cells will then fill up the space left by the scar and your skin will be back to the way it was before.

If you want to get rid of scars and stretch marks permanently, the only way to do this is spend money on expensive procedures such as microdermabrasion or laser treatments. On the other hand, if you do not want to spend a lot of money, or simply reducing the appearance of scars is enough for you, then you can choose to use scar removal creams or home remedies.
