What Causes Stretch Marks to Form?

Woman with smooth skinWhen leaving the shower, you may notice stretch marks you have never seen before. How did these stretch marks form? The cause of these unsightly skin flaws is a tear in the dermis, the layer of your skin beneath the surface.

There are a lot of ways in which the dermis can be ruptured. The most common cause is rapid weight change. Massive changes in your body weight place a large amount of stress on the skin. If it is not given the proper amount of time to stretch into its new shape, the dermis will tear and form a stretch mark in the skin.

At Aker Aesthetics, we offer several highly effective treatments that can significantly reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
