At REJUV AVE. we think the skin is a beautiful thing; in fact, the skin is the largest organ of the human body!
Our skin protects us from everyday elements, helps regulate body temperature, and allows us to experience sensation. It’s no wonder as we age, we begin to see just how hard our skin has been working tirelessly to work for us. Stretch marks are one of the signs of protection. Common questions we receive here at REJUV AVE. are “How do we get stretch marks and how do they develop? When do stretch marks develop? Can these imperfections of the skin be removed? We are here to help clients in the surrounding Flint and Fenton areas better understand stretch marks and options they have to improve their skin.
What is a stretch mark?
A stretch mark is a type of scar that develops when our skin stretches or shrinks quickly. The abrupt change causes the collagen and elastin, which support our skin, to rupture. As the skin heals, stretch marks may appear. And all stretch marks aren’t created equal. They come in all different sizes, shapes and color. Did you know a high percentage of American’s have stretch marks? Or that it’s very frequent that people Google search “How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks?” We’re not ALONE!
