If you’ve recently lost a few pounds, had a baby, or are undergoing any sudden body change, congrats! But apart from this success, you might have tiger stripes on your skin. Yikes! What are those?
Well, stretch marks are what we’re talking about. The lines that have gotten lighter are caused by the skin stretching and contracting. Even though it happens a lot when people gain or lose weight or are pregnant, it can also be caused by genetics, stress, and other things.
But the question of how to get rid of stretch marks still stands. Here with us at Bella Jade Medspa will help discuss what stretch marks are all about. Check out this post to learn more details about this skin dilemma.
What are Stretch Marks?
Stretch marks usually show up and are more noticeable on the thighs, forearms, and waist. Most of the time, it appears in places where some skin shows in the summer.
It is a scar that happens when our skin grows or shrinks quickly. Because of the sudden change, the collagen and elastin that support our skin break. Stretch marks may show up as the skin heals.
Skin bands like these don’t happen to everyone. Hormone levels that change seem to play a role. Stretch marks can also make you feel bad and stop you from wearing short or sleeveless dresses, which is not what you want! You may also be more likely to get them if people in your family have them.
Stretch marks are most likely to appear during the following times:
- During puberty, there are growth spurts.
- Quickly losing or gaining weight.
- When your muscles increase, you should lift weights.
Corticosteroids can also cause stretch marks if left on the skin for a long time. Stretch marks may appear if you have Cushing’s disease or Marfan syndrome.
Depending on the color of your skin, stretch marks are usually red, purple, pink, reddish-brown, or dark brown when they first appear. Stretch marks just starting may feel a little raised and can be itchy.
Over time, the color fades, and the thin bands disappear. If you run your finger over a stretch mark that has been there for a while, you may feel a slight depression.

Scarlet SRF Microneedling and Radiofrequency
Microneedling RF technology is a significant step forward in the fight against stretch marks. This treatment does the following:
- Treats all skin types
- Smooths out stretch marks as it tightens, firm, and lift.
- Boosts the health and beauty of the skin
- Almost no pain, downtime, or adverse effects.
How Does Scarlet SRF Get Rid of Stretch Marks?
Scarlet SRF is an anti-aging and skin-tightening product that the FDA has approved. The short-pulse radio frequency (SRF) microneedling device is one of the best and most effective RF systems. It works on all kinds of skin and has few or no side effects or downtime.
It uses special microneedles to deliver RF energy below the skin’s surface. This remodels collagen and elastin and makes the skin denser. The treatment safely repairs, tightens, lifts, and smooths away stretch marks while improving the tone and texture of the skin.
Scarlet SRF puts back together the essential parts of younger skin that have been repaired for the best possible skin health.
Cosmopen Next Generation Microneedling Technology
This treatment is a medical-grade, high-speed microneedling system that is a real breakthrough. Check out the benefits of this medication.
- It helps the body make collagen on its own.
- Activates the body’s ability to heal wounds
- It brings more blood to the area being treated.
- It fills out and thickens the skin, which makes stretch marks less noticeable.
- Helps with a wide range of skin problems
- Improves the health of the skin as a whole

How does the Cosmo Pen Get Rid of Stretch Marks?
CosmoPen is a medical-grade, high-speed microneedling system that gives the same results as a fractional laser without pain, downtime, cost, or thermal damage.
The innovative procedure, called collagen induction therapy, involves making controlled, non-thermal micro-wounds on the skin’s surface.
The body responds by making more collagen and elastin, which makes the skin fuller and thicker. That helps get rid of stretch marks and fixes most problems with how the skin feels.
By turning on the skin’s natural wound healing response, CosmoPen microneedling makes more new tissue. The non-ablative treatment fixes several skin problems and makes the skin healthier and more beautiful.
Also, the microchannels made by microneedling make it easier for topical skin care products to get into the skin and work better.
