WHAT CAUSES STRETCH MARKS?

Stretch marks are common occurrence and many people especially woman bound to experience it at some point in their life. During periods of rapid growth or weight gain, fine lines may begin to form on the body due to the skin being overstretched. This occurs because the skin collagen is disrupted, leading to connective tissue not growing as it should. The dermal and epidermal tearing comes about as a result of this, with the skin not being as elastic as it should be.

Aside from puberty, you are also likely to experience stretch marks during pregnancy or if there is a history of stretch marks within your family.

HOW IT WORKS

A derma-roller is a handheld service that uses multiple micro-needles to penetrate the superficial layer of the skin. Derma-rollers work by producing  thousands of microscopic needle holes in the dermis, which stimulates the skin to produce new collagen and elastic and generate new cells. When this process is repeated over time, the skin becomes more renewed and damage is gradually repaired.
