Microneedling for Stretch Marks – Stretch marks result from shear forces on tightened skin. Stretch marks may result from pregnancy or other changes in the girth of limbs or the abdomen. Stretch marks or Striae Distensae, are tears to the connective tissue of the skin caused by rapid growth or over-stretching of the skin. When the connective tissue is stretched and tears, epidermal atrophy along the tear results. The epidermis becomes thin and loses it rete ridges. The elastic fibers break and retract. Stretch marks are a form of scarring similar to the healing after a wound separation or dehiscence, a process which reapproximates the stretched skin surfaces. Micro needling helps to thicken the skin over stretch marks restoring the contours of the epidermal surface.
