DIY treatment diminishes Stretch Marks

What are the causes of stretch marks?

Stretch marks are areas of skin that have scars in parallel lines where there have been tears in the skin. These tears happen because the skin gets stretched. Stretching of the skin occurs during pregnancy, or when a growth spurt causes internal growth to happen faster than the skin can grow to adapt.

Why and how Collagen Induction Therapy works so well

Collagen Induction Therapy breaks down the tough scar fiber strands. It causes them to get improved blood flow and induces the production of collagen to the site. This causes them to heal better, and lessen their presence. Scars follow the same process. The reason that this process helps to restore better condition to the skin is because it causes an increase in number and spread of fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are the connective tissue cells that create collagen and elastin fibers. These bring about collagen production and formation of better blood vessels to the tissue.

It does not cost much…just invest the time

The derma rollers to do Collagen Induction Therapy at home cost very little. Regular cycles of treatment to the stretch mark or scar area will diminish them with each treatment. Application of vitamin A and C ingredients fuel the collagen production and healing process.

This treatment restores a healthier, younger appearance to skin. It is a process that can allow your favorite skin products to work more deeply. Because of this, it improves firmness as well. You may be surprised at how much this can improve the appearance.

What is the alternative solution

Alternatives to Collagen Induction Therapy for treatment of stretch marks include laser treatments, light treatments, and microdermabrasion. These are alternatives listed by the Mayo Clinic. As with Collagen Induction Therapy, stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin comes from all these methods. They also say that the use of lotions for preventing and treating of stretch marks is not something that is supported by scientific evidence.
