Stretch Marks Treatment
Stretch marks treatment is a favourite topic of conversation among Indian women and why not, because it’s a common beauty spoiler and a huge embarrassment for both men and women. Stretch marks occur when our skin stretches beyond its potential of its recovery. The excessive stretching of the skin breaks collagen and the elastic fibres in the deeper layers which impart support to the skin. This breakage of collagen and elastic fibres results in stretch marks. Initially they are red and gradually they fade to become silvery white.
Oliva Clinics offers the most advanced stretch marks treatment with the advanced Radiofrequency (RF) technology named Secret RF. Unlike medications, peels, and microdermabrasion which have limited penetration with minimal or no results, Secret RF treatment clears the stretch marks from within, in just few sessions.
Stretch Marks Explained

They often start as red or purple lines and gradually attain a silvery-white colour appearance. They usually occur over the shoulders, upper arms, breasts, abdomen, lower back,thighs, buttocks, calves etc.
Stretch marks are very common in women than in men. Pregnancy, weight fluctuation (weight loss or gain), puberty, genetic factors, certain medications like oral corticosteroids etc, and health conditions like Marfan's syndrome and Cushing’s syndrome result in stretch marks.
