Stretch Marks

Are you tired of looking at your stretch marks? Almost everyone has them and the people that do, want them to simply disappear. Treatment for stretch marks in Brooklyn does exist and you can receive it for any of the marks you may have on your body. It is important for you to talk to a qualified and trained dermatologist before you have any type of treatment performed. Stretch marks are a type of scarring that occurs on the skin and it is associated with conditions such as:

  • Puberty
  • Pregnancy
  • Short-term weight gain
  • Obesity
  • Physical exercise and body building
  • And more

The marks themselves will form then the dermis layer of the skin is stretched out more than it can handle. This is possible to happen and the marks appear when the skin has reached that point. The connective fibers that are present in your skin can only stretch so far before they break. This then results in the scars that you see. The only way to completely remove stretch marks in Brooklyn is to have stretch mark removal completed.

If you are interested in removal of your stretch marks, now is the time to call Kleydman Dermatology to discuss your options.

Where Do Stretch Marks Form?

Stretch marks can form anywhere on the body where the skin is able to be stretched. It is important to know that stretching of the skin too quickly can cause many stretch marks to occur and they may appear red when they first form. Some of the most common areas to find stretch marks include:

  • Hips
  • Stomach
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Lower back
  • Arms

All the skin in these centralized areas are subject to intense use and rapid weight development or muscle growth, which leads them to experience stress and the skin stretches to try to meet the demands of the body.

Stretch Mark Treatment in Brooklyn

Stretch marks can be treated and it is important for you to seek out treatment if you are unhappy with the way they look. The first step for treatment is to apply creams to the marks themselves to try and fade them. Some creams will work deep into the layers to try and boost the regeneration process of newer skin. Topical creams can and do work, but they are best for patients whose stretch marks just occurred, as they will not work on well-established stretch marks.

The next step in treatment would be to try Microneedling as an option. This would help to produce the growth of collagen in the skin, which could fade out the stretch marks.


When all else fails, laser stretch mark therapy may be performed. In this treatment, a laser will remove the layers of skin that are around the stretch marks. The laser will disrupt the molecular bonds, which will cause the tissues to disintegrate and thus leave you without stretch marks.

Striae Distensae, more commonly known as stretchmarks, are caused by stretching of the skin. This occurs when there is a rapid growth of the dermis or epidermis. The skin is unable to form enough collagen and elastin fibers, which are necessary to form the supportive material for taut skin. The lack of collagen then causes the skin to tear with rapid stretching, later forming into scarring in the form of stretchmarks. Stretchmarks are most common in cases of rapid weight gain, pregnancy and adolescent growth spurts. Although stretchmarks are very difficult to fully eradicate, there are many procedures that help diminish the appearance of stretchmarks.

The first, most affordable step is to try creams like ammonium lactate and retinoid based creams. Ammonium lactate helps moisturize the deep layers and speed up the skin’s natural regeneration process; while, retinol creams exfoliate the skin allowing for deeper penetration. Although this may improve the appearance of fresh stretchmarks, it will have little to no effect on long developed stretchmarks.

The next course of action would be to utilize micro-needling to treat stretchmarks. Micro-needling is also known as collagen induction therapy, which means that it promotes the growth and production of collagen. With the use of tiny needles, channels are made over the treatment site which allow for the hyaluronic acid serum to seep deep into the epidermis and induce collage and fibrin production.
