Stretch Marks Affect All Ages and Body Types
Stretch marks have plagued young and old, thin and heavy, body builders and pregnant women. The medical/scientific name for stretch marks is striae distensae. They are much more common than people think. Here are some statistics of those who have stretch marks:
- approximately 25-35% of teenagers (thin and overweight)
- up to 90% of women who have had at least two kids
- approximately 95% of body builders
They are embarrassing to the point of changing wardrobes to cover them up or not wanting to take showers in gym class. In the past there has been no treatment.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
There is a huge genetic predisposition which can be exacerbated by hormonal changes such as adolescence, pregnancy or steroids, etc.
Stretch marks are most commonly located over the buttocks, back, abdomen, thighs and in the groin and under the arms. These “stripes” consist of paper thin, atrophic, wrinkled skin. They go through an irreversible color progression of reddish to purple and then to white.
Can Stretch Marks be Removed Without Surgery?
Up until now, there has been no successful treatment. Past treatments have included retinoid acid, alpha hydroxyl acid, fraxil and other types of lasers, none of which could stimulate the few, atrophic fibrocytes which are in stretch marks.
Microscopically, the skin of stretch marks is “old,” weak and thin. There is complete loss of elastin fibers and marked decrease of collagen, hyaluronic acid, fibrocytes and capillaries, very similar to thin crepe skin of the elderly.
Strengthen the Skin and Heal the Stretch Marks
The ingredients in Natural Marine Extract restore thickness and vitality to the skin. The ingredients in NME are known to repair damaged DNA and stimulate DNA expression, which are critical functions of cellular rejuvenation.
Ingredients include Ubiquitin, Calmodulin, Nucleoplasmin, ferritin, Actin 2, ependymin protein 1, pro-alpha 2(l) collagen, pepsin A, Type IV collagen pro-tormer chains, mannuronate lyase, pro-alpha1 (l) collagen, and guluronate lyase.
Skin Rejuvenation is Proven by Biopsy, Not Just Photography
These ocean compounds are from ocean crustaceans, mollusks and plants which are indigenous to numerous areas around the world and have been consumed for millennia. But this is the first time in history that they have been combined into one product. These ingredients allow the production of new, young, active fibrocytes which create tremendous collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid synthesis. This allow the atrophic, thin skin of stretch marks to regain its thickness and vitality.
The ingredients in Natural Marine Extract are presently the only known compounds which create skin metamorphosis.
They are a “reset button” to make the thin skin of stretch marks thicker. As you see in the photos, skin rejuvenation is proven by biopsy, not just photography.
