What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks are a common skin condition that affect women and men of all ages. They typically appear as stripes or lines on the skin. Pregnant women often see stretch marks form due to hormonal changes and stretching of their skin. However, there are a number of reasons why stretch marks form.
They typically look like stripes or lines on the skin. The most common is red stretch marks, which is what they look like when they first appear. They can also be purple, pink, reddish-brown or dark brown. This all depends on your skin type.
Where can you develop stretch marks on your body?
Stretch marks can appear on different parts of the body. The most common areas include:
- Upper arms
What are the causes of stretch marks on my skin?
A stretch mark is a type of scar that is harmless. However, people may find them to be unsightly or uncomfortable.
Stretch marks appear when your skin stretches or shrinks at a fast pace. This causes collagen and elastin in your skin to break up or rupture. Stretch marks form when the skin starts to heal itself.
You can develop stretch marks for many reasons. They include:
- Puberty growth spurt
- Weight loss
- Rapid weight gain
- Pregnancy stretch marks
- Increasing muscle mass through weight training

Laser skin resurfacing treatment
This is a popular and effective laser treatment for treating stretch marks. But how does stretch mark removal work? The laser helps to resurface the skin to its tone and texture without causing any damage to the surface of the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing treatment removes the damaged outer layer of the skin, encouraging new and healthy skin cells to grow. The laser energy sends intense heat below the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen production. This helps with reducing stretch marks and makes your skin stronger, increasing the ability to withstand stretching.
This laser treatment also helps minimise other types of scarring, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin texture.
Laser skin resurfacing is only suitable for people with lighter skin types. If you have a darker skin tone, your practitioner will suggest another treatment for your stretch marks. This may include microneedling.
Dermapen microneedling stretch mark removal treatment
Microneedling is an effective stretch mark treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro punctures in the skin. How does this help with treating stretch marks? The micro injuries to the skin help to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
As the skin repairs, new collagen and elastin start to form. This provides skin rejuvenation by improving the appearance and texture of your skin. It also helps to plump the area where the stretch marks are to reduce their appearance.
Dermapen is a relatively quick and comfortable treatment. With a course of microneedling treatments, you will see your stretch marks reduce or fade significantly over time.
