Clarins Stretch Mark Minimizer Review

Scars originate by the depositing a fibrous tissue called collagen to repair the broken skin. It’s much like our original skin, but laid out in a different pattern. Additionally, since this is new tissue, it takes on a different appearance than the original skin. There are many types of scars. Some of these are:

Keloid – An overgrowth of the tissue that heals the wound which causes a firm nodule at the side of the injury. These can be painful and unsightly.
Hypertrophic – These scars are similar to keloids. There are raised and red-pigmented, but they do not protrude beyond the original injury site. They are very commonly caused by body piercings, pimples, cuts and burns.
Atrophic – These occur when muscle and fat are lost due to an injury and the scar appears to be sunken. These scars generally originate from severe acne, or the removal of a cyst or tumor.
Stretch Marks – This happens when the skin is overstretched and the dermal tissue actual tears. This is common with pregnancy, being overweight and from bodybuilding.

There are many treatments for scar removal including chemical peels, filler injections, dermabrasion, laser treatment, steroids, semi-occlusive and pressure dressings and radiotherapy. Some of these treatments can be very expensive and they may not be effective at all. Another treatment option that is becoming very popular are natural therapies. They are fast, easy and cost effective. Treatments like Clarins Stretch Mark Minimizer are designed to reduce swelling, redness and pain that come from scarring.
