What are stretch marks?
Stretch marks look like lines or streaks across the skin and they can be pink, red, brown, black, silver, or purple in colour.
They’re caused by sudden growth or weight gain when the deeper layer of the skin (dermis) tears.
Stretch marks are extremely common, harmless, and nothing to be embarrassed about - however - scar treatments may be able to minimise their appearance if used early enough.
How can you get rid of stretch marks?
Stretch marks are harmless, but you might not like how they look. If so, you should try Bio-Oil.
Bio-Oil combines natural plant oils, vitamins, and a unique ingredient called PurCellin oil to help improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Plant oils are traditionally used to enhance the appearance of the skin, while vitamins support your skin’s health, making this a great skincare combination.
PurCellin helps to reduce the consistency of the oil, creating a lighter formula that’s quickly absorbed into the skin.
Do scars disappear over time?
Scarring is part of our body’s natural healing process after the tissue has been damaged.
When we suffer from a wound, the tissues break and collagen builds up in the area to help heal and strengthen the wound.
After some time, the collagen breaks down and the blood supply reduces, meaning the scar gradually becomes smoother and softer.
Scars can fade over a period of up to 2 years, but it’s unlikely they’ll fade any more after this time and they won’t disappear completely.
How do you fade scars fast?
While scars don’t disappear completely, you can speed up the healing and fading process.
Surgery can be an option to make non-raised scars less noticeable, along with dermabrasion, micro-needling and laser resurfacing.
There is also a range of silicone gels and patches available to help reduce the appearance of your scars.
