Stria is an acquired cutaneous atrophy that arises when the elastic and collagen fibers (responsible for the firmness of the skin) break and form "scars". Stretch marks occur more in women, and can be discreet or exuberant.
The appearance of the initial stretch marks are pink or skin-colored, depressed or slightly elevated lesions and, in the late phase, white lesions with variable thickness and width, being more frequent on the buttocks, thighs, abdomen and back. The cause is not known, but these lesions usually appear after excessive or abrupt distension of the skin that triggers inflammation and then rupture of elastic and collagen fibers. They can occur in situations such as: rapid growth during puberty, excessive muscle growth due to exaggerated physical exercises, placing expanders under the skin or prostheses (for example, breast), pregnancy, obesity, prolonged use of topical, oral or injectable corticosteroids and anorexia nervosa.
One of the ways to treat stretch marks is through the use of the Glycolic Acid present in the composition of EstriDerme, which is able to exfoliate the skin, stimulate collagen synthesis, thus slowing down your aging in addition to reducing scars and injuries (such as stretch marks). and InoveDerme Cream (barrier cream for use in the affected area or in regions of the body that need protection). Dermal restorative for sensitive, dry or cracked skin.
