Stretch marks or striae, as they are technically referred to, are a mild type of scar which affect the middle (dermis) layer of skin. They are in fact a tear in the skin where the stretching of tissue has resulted in the skin fibres becoming detached from one another. It is mainly the middle dermis layer of skin in which the damage has occurred. They affect the majority of the adult population, although females are more susceptible to them as they also suffer from stretch marks on the breasts and from pregnancy.
There is no medical risk associated with having a stretch mark although there appearance does concern many individuals who suffer from them. The emotional strain of having to deal with them can often be significant particularly in warmer months when the amount of skin on show tends to increase.
Appearance of Striae
Stretch Marks first appear as a reddish purple lines in the skin. Over time, this colour fades to become a silvery white colour. They can appear anywhere on the body, but tend to be concentrated on fleshy parts, notably the stomach, thighs, lower back and breasts. Many are very fortunate and only have very feint stretch marks visible. However, others do suffer from particularity pronounced stretchmarks, and as a result, they can make people feel very self conscious. At this point, stretch mark removal becomes very important.

What Causes Stretch Marks
In technical terms, it is the failure of the bodies fibroblast to produce enough collagen and elastin fibres to keep growing skin firm and taut. This in turn creates pockets of skin without the necessary supportive structure underneath. This results in a tear within the dermis layer of skin.
In simpler terms, it is your skins inability to keep up with the speed of growth of other areas of the body. For example, during puberty, a persons muscles and bones are growing particularly fast. In many cases, the skin cannot keep up and stretch marks occur.
Pregnancy stretch marks are common place – so much so that they are in fact the a normal part of the pregnancy. Again, this is due to rapid expansion as the baby grows and develops. In fact, any period of rapid weight gain can result in striae occurring which is the reason body builders are also often afflicted.
Dermarollers For Stretch Marks
The thinned Dermis layer, which result in stretchmarks, is pricked by the needles of the dermaroller. These create minute trauma to the top few layers of skin. As with any trauma, the skin begins to heals itself by producing collagen. Because the epidermis and dermis layers do in fact remain intact throughout the skin needling process, the collagen produced in response to the micro needles, simply aids the thickening of the dermis layer of skin. By increasing this thickness, the stretchmarks firstly fade away, and eventually can disappear altogether.
