As a result, a small area of dermal atrophy.This is accompanied by a lengthening of collagen fibers horizontally.Elastin fibers are lengthened, then torn and replaced by connective tissue.Since the internal "scars" are formed in the dermis.Gradually the land at all excluded from the circulatory system.Predict whether you have stretch marks appear, it is impossible.Even the presence or absence of stretch marks from you during the last pregnancy does not guarantee that this time the situation is repeated.

After getting rid of the stratum corneum of the skin is carried out intensive recovery.There are effective various wraps and masks, accelerates regeneration of damaged fibers.At the same time they increase the elasticity of the dermis, thus prevent the appearance of new stretch marks.Good cosmetic effect lasts at least a year.In some cases there may be a fundamental solution to the problem with the help of abdominoplasty.That is, it removes sagging skin on the abdomen, along with stretch marks.It is acceptable only when a narrow area of the defect.By the way, microdermabrasion can be used within a month after birth.But the last two, when you have finished breast feeding your baby.
