What are stretch marks and how can I get rid of them?

Stretch marks are a common skin problem and can appear anywhere on the body here the skin has been stretched. Areas they commonly pop up in include:

  • Abdomen
  • Breasts
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks

If you’re one of the many people who suffer from stretch marks, you may find them unsightly and choose not to wear certain types of clothing in order to conceal them, even when the weather is hot. If the marks are particularly bad, you may find yourself becoming depressed or lacking in self-esteem as a result, unable to look in the mirror.

Stretch marks can cause anxiety, emotional distress and other psychological problems, as well as a lack of self-esteem and body confidence. Fortunately, help is at hand with laser stretch mark removal from Pulse Light Clinic.
