Stretch-marks are injuries of the dermis of variable length.
In reality, it is a pathological state of the connective tissue of the dermis, characterized by localized excessive fibrosis in the form of strings which is the result of the rupture and poor quality of the previously existing fibers. We could say that stretch-marks are scars of the skin tissue.
Stretch-marks appear especially and more or less frequently in the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, bust area, lumbar area, arms and legs. Women normally suffer from stretch-marks during puberty and pregnancy.
Currently there is no therapeutic treatment to completely make the stretch-marks disappear. They normally fade away over the years, until they become almost invisible.
We can try to prevent them, although only in an empirical way, with massages that stimulate the cutaneous circulation and with active ingredients that help in the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
It is recommendable to give 2 treatments per week during the first month, and once per week during the following month.
Note: It is absolutely necessary to follow the exact indications for the home treatment, as recommended by the professional.
Do not apply this treatment on skin with skin conditions (as in sores, rashes, etc.)
During the first minutes of application the skin can turn red and stingy, which will disappear shortly after.
If the reaction is superior to normal, remove the product with abundant water, even if the treatment has not been finished.
Do not depilate the skin 24 hours before and after the application of the treatment.
Avoid direct sun exposure during treatment.
Do not use electric appliances during application of treatment.
Do not apply this treatment when applying other dermatological treatments such as:
Treatment with Retinoic Acid or any other treatment.
You can combine the treatment with other cosmetic treatments, because of the synergic action; it increases the absorption of the product.
Initially, we recommend the use of AHA products by the client at home, for at least 7 days. Thereafter it is advisable to continue with the salon treatment.
Important note: Buffered System product: contains a neutralizing solution of a part of the glycolic acid by means of salt of the acid itself (glycolate), which regulates and maintains the pH skin factor, avoiding the danger of an excessive aggressive action.
