Stretch marks are a skin imperfection that affects not only women but a small percentage of men also.
There are several causes that lead to the formation of stretch marks:
- Pregnancy: the first-time mothers are the most affected.
- Obesity: the areas most affected are those of the hips and thighs.
- Physical activity: caused by the stresses to which it subjected the connective tissue of the dermis. The most affected areas are the thighs and the back-lumbar area.
- Medical treatments: caused mainly by a therapy with cortisone. Here stretch marks tend to be large.
As always, the treatment with cosmetological products should be initiated early and as regards pregnancy for both the high situations.
The cosmetic products contain firming and film-forming substances and formulations are varied (from serums to fat emulsions)
There are also products with content of plant extracts that are used because of their elasticity properties.
