Dr. Barry Lycka - October 13, 2017

Unwanted stretch mark issues bring many amazing clients into Barry Lycka MD & Associates, so if you’re struggling to get rid of your own, know that you’re certainly not alone. Almost everyone will eventually find some degree of stretch marks on their body, and there are many different causes.


What Causes Stretch Marks

Stretch marks can appear on women and men for various reasons. Some common causes include:

  • Weight gain
  • Bodybuilding
  • Certain medications
  • Adrenal gland diseases/Cushing’s Syndrome

In addition to common causes, certain people can be a higher risk of developing stretch marks if they experience:

  • Pregnancy
  • A family history of stretch marks
  • Using corticosteroids
  • Rapid weight gain or loss

How to Treat Stretch Marks

Though no treatment can guarantee the permanent removal of stretch marks, there are plenty of ways to minimize and prevent their appearance over time. From topical ointments to laser therapy, there is a treatment for everyone at Dr. Lycka’s office.

To prevent stretch marks, using vitamin E oil on your skin regularly can reduce the risk of developing these pigmented streaks on the body. If you already have stretch marks you want to get rid of, here are some treatment options:

  • CO2 laser therapy
  • Profractional treatment
  • Thermage
  • Stratamark

Introducing Stratamark

Stratamark is a new revolutionary topical treatment for stretch marks caused by pregnancy, rapid growth/weight gain and loss, and other cases. Benefits of Stratamark include:

  • Clinically proven efficiency
  • Reduced visibility of stretch marks
  • Reduced redness and pigmentation
  • Relieved itching

Stretch marks are very common but that doesn’t mean you should have to live with them self-consciously. To learn more about treating stretch marks at Barry Lycka MD & Associates, book a consultation online or call 780.425.1212 today!
