Stretch marks aren’t exclusive to women who have recently given birth. Men and women can develop these for a number of reasons. Luckily, there are a good number of non-invasive cosmetic treatments that can effectively reduce the visibility of these stretch marks. Today’s technological advancements in cosmetics now make it possible to correct skin imperfection without having to undergo surgery. And here at LiveGorgeous OC, you can find some of the best and most advanced non-surgical cosmetic treatments that can effectively address specific problem areas.
Common Causes of Stretch Marks
While it is common to associate stretch marks with pregnancy, these can appear on the body for a number of reasons. In other words, stretch marks aren’t limited to post-pregnancy skin conditions. Men can develop them too, as well as women who have never even been pregnant.
Some of the most common causes of stretch marks are: genetics, puberty, body building, and corticosteroids medication. These can develop on the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, lower back, arms, and chest.
For some, stretch marks appear after losing a considerable amount of weight. When the skin has been considerably stretched and then you suddenly lose weight, you may experience not only loose and sagging skin, but stretch marks as well.
Whatever the cause, there are effective ways to correct this particular skin imperfection through non-invasive cosmetic treatments.
For a lot of people, the initial corrective measure to consider is the one that’s easiest to obtain: over-the-counter creams and lotions. These are specifically formulated to lighten the appearance of or eliminate stretch marks altogether. While it may take awhile to see visible results, their effectiveness has been attested to by quite a number of people who have used them for this particular skin issue. On the other hand, if you want faster results, you may choose to receive a laser skin treatment from a reputable cosmetic clinic like LiveGorgeous OC.
We understand how frustrating it can be sometimes to wait for results to appear, which is why we recommend a laser skin treatment for patients who wish to see visible results in just a few sessions.
