Stretch marks are a form of scarring on the skin. Stretch marks are caused by tearing of the dermis during periods of rapid growth of the body, such as pregnancy or from rapid weight loss or gain.
Cortisone is a hormone that is physiologically produced by the adrenal glands, however an excess production of cortisone can result in decreased skin elasticity and thus stretch marks. Stretch marks due to elevated cortisone levels can be seen in conditions such as Cushing’s syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome and Marfan’s syndrome.

During the free consultation or the day of the appointment, the medical esthetician will assess your skin, go over the different treatment options and let you know which treatment option(s) would be best suited for your skin.
