You Have Stretch Marks

CLEO (Malaysia) - - ORIGINS SPECIAL -

Stretch marks oc­cur when your skin is over­stretched by things like growth spurts, preg­nancy, or rapid weight gain. They’re scars in the lower lay­ers of the skin which are pur­plishred and even­tu­ally fade to be­come sil­very, shim­mery lines. Pre­vent them by eat­ing healthily and us­ing daily mas­sage creams and oint­ments to im­prove the skin’s elas­tic­ity. Look for prod­ucts that as­sist in boost­ing col­la­gen pro­duc­tion. LED light ther­apy treat­ments are an ef­fec­tive way of re­duc­ing the ap­pear­ance of stretch marks and will help to pre­vent them from de­vel­op­ing into se­ri­ous scars. In­tense pulsed light (IPL) ther­apy can be used to fade red­ness, but won’t make the marks dis­ap­pear.
