Stretch Marks Can Affect Peple of All Ages and Body Types
Stretch marks have plagued those who are 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 as well as overweight)
- up to 90% of women who have had at least two children
- approximately 95% of body builders
Stretch marks are embarrassing to the point of people changing wardrobes to cover them up or not wanting to take showers in gym class. In the past, there had been no treatment.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
There is a huge genetic predisposition to developing stretch marks, 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, 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 present in stretch marks.
Microscopically, the skin of stretch marks is “old,” weak and thin. There is complete loss of elastin fibers and a marked decrease of collagen, hyaluronic acid, fibrocytes and capillaries - a condition very similar to the 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 have been shown to repair damaged DNA and stimulate DNA expression, which are critical aspects of cellular rejuvenation.
Skin Rejuvenation is Proven by Biopsy, Not Just Photography
The ocean compounds found in NME are from ocean crustaceans, mollusks and plants which are indigenous to numerous areas around the world, and have been consumed for millennia. However, this is the first time in history that they have been combined into one unique product. These ingredients help allow the production of new, young, active fibrocytes which create significant collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid synthesis. This allows 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 help create skin metamorphosis.
They are a “reset button” to make the thin skin of stretch marks thicker. As you can see in the photos, skin rejuvenation is documented by biopsy, not just photography.
