Stretch marks are the lines that appear on your skin when your skin stretches quickly from weight gain or muscle growth. Stretch marks vary in size and may appear as pink, blue, white, or brown lines on the skin (depending on your skin tone).
The Allura Skin, Laser & Wellness Clinic locations in Fort Collins and Loveland offer a number of treatments to get rid of stretch marks without surgery. Consider the suggested treatments below and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to schedule a free consultation.
Stretch marks are caused by the rapid stretching of skin. You may have stretch marks that have been around from growth spurts as a teen. Or you may have recently developed stretch marks from rapid weight gain or muscle growth. Stretch marks are also a very common result of pregnancy.
In some cases stretch marks may go away – as may be the case with pregnancy. In other causes, they could be around for the long haul. Fortunately there are various treatments available that can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
