Stretch marks are a skin condition commonly experienced during pregnancy. However, it may surprise you that there are different causes of stretch marks, as stretch marks can occur for many reasons other than pregnancy. Of course, many people and beauty companies swear by stretch mark treatments that can “erase” stretch marks. But are these claims too good to be true?
The Skin Report is a podcast created to educate listeners on methods to improve skin health for people of all ethnicities and ages. On this episode, host Dr. Sethi educates listeners on why stretch marks occur, the risk factors for developing stretch marks, and the different types of stretch marks. She also discusses how some aesthetic treatments can lighten stretch marks, making them less visible, while “stretch mark removal treatments” are a waste of money. Finally, Dr. Sethi answers a listener’s question about the different kinds of skin acids, what they do, and when to use them in a skincare routine.
