What Are Purple Stretch Marks?

Purple stretch marks are basically the initial phase of one’s newly obtained stretch marks. When you are just getting started on getting these marks, they start off in colors such as red, purple, brown black. The idea is that they start off in a dark shade and eventually get lighter over time.

Though many medicines and stretch marks removal creams suggest that they can get rid of it that it completely removes them. However, there has been no study that supports their claims. Stretch marks fade over time and may or may not completely disappear. Major chances are that though they may fade, they’ll stay there permanently fused to your skin. But it isn’t something to be feeling extremely discouraged about. They are just barely visible and don’t really alter your appearance in a negative way. In other words… they are just there and have no consequences whatsoever.

But it is true that people wish to have these stretch marks fade away much quicker than the pace at which they normally advance, which is extremely slow! Women who are pregnant also get these purple stretch marks due to the skin expanding at a really rapid pace. So what are some stretch marks removal creams that one can use to do this task? Is there a product that guarantees 100% removal… This is all discussed in the next section of this blog

This step involves a roller with multiple sterilized needles inside it which is rolled over your skin. This tearing of the skin leads to the rise of production of more new cells which helps remove the stretch marks thus allowing for a fresher layer of skin to be developed over the existing one!
