Two triggering factors of stretchmarks include pregnancy and adolescence. During these times the body can produce high adrenal activity, increasing the production of glucocorticoids (steroid hormones). Under the influence of these steroid hormones the growth of both fibroblast and keratinocytes cells are blocked, these cells are responsible for building the skins matrix.
The affected area recruits mast cells and macrophages (part of your bodies immune system). Through the release of their enzymes trypsin, chymotrypsin and elastase markedly degrade the structure of the skins extracellular matrix.
In a highly impaired environment fibroblast cells are no longer able to neutralise the effects of the destructive enzymes and lose contact with the matrix.The tissue becomes fragile and stretchmarks start to form and eventually become visible on the surface of the skin.
Treating stretch marks involves inhibiting destructive enzymes that cause damage to the extracellular matrix and by stimulating fibroblast cells that increase the production of the skins building blocks to give the skin a smooth appearance.
By utilising a synergistic blend of active ingredients (plant extract, vitamins and minerals) we can treat stretchmarks from the early stages of formation. These ingredients inhibit destructive enzymes released by mast cells and macrophages that cause degradation to collagen, fibronectin and elastin helping limit the damage to the skin matrix.
A combination of peptides and plant origin ingredients restructure the skin on multiple layers to ensure strength and flexibility of the skin to return to its optimum efficiency. By stimulating the natural building blocks found in the skin we can see a significant reduction in stretchmarks formation improved tone, elasticity and firmness.
