Stretch marks (striae) can occur on both men and women, from adolescents to adults. When the skin is stretched too far, too fast, lines begin to appear. Fortunately, there's a treatment that can reduce the appearance of these scar-like marks by up to 80%. You can expect a decrease in the appearance of your stretch marks and a smoother texture of the skin. The number of treatments varies by individual.
