Stretch Marks on Buttocks and the Treatments
Stretch marks on buttocks are one of the areas where stretch marks can grow the most. Unlike stretch marks on arms or on breasts, the stretch marks on buttocks and thighs are usually longer and wider. This happens because the fibers in the dermis layer or your skin in this part are usually long and wide. They are mostly harmless except for your pride because it is usually quite hide to hide if you are wearing swimsuit.
Symptoms and Causes of Stretch Marks on Buttocks
Normal stretch marks on buttocks are usually pink, red or purple in color initially. The streaks are indented and they would gradually fade into white or silver color, depending on your own skin color. The streaks will run as parallel lines that are usually found in groups instead of a lone line. They could also be found centralized in one location or spread across a wider part of the body.
Like any other stretch marks, stretch marks on buttocks happen because of a rapid change that could not be followed by your body’s speed. Whether it is because your skin is not elastic enough or because you grow too fast, the fibers in the middle layer of your skin are stretched by force and some of them are broken because of it. The scars become visible as these stretch marks on your skin. Puberty, muscle or weight gain, pregnancy, usage or abuse of steroids and obesity are common causes for stretch marks, including the ones on the buttocks.
Treatments for Stretch Marks on Buttocks
Ointment and lotions are the general stretch marks on buttocks treatment. Medication cream, like Tretinoin, could also be used to restore the collagen and fade the stretch marks so that it could blend well with the skin around it. Dermatology procedures like pulsed dye laser therapy could also be used to treat the stretch marks on buttocks, especially to those that have existed for a longer time.
