How To Deal With Neck Skin Like Stretch Marks?
Hello, I want to ask why is the skin on my neck like stretch marks and how can I overcome it?
Hello Muhammad Naufal,
Strech mark is a phenomenon of stretching the skin due to lack of elasticity so that it appears streaks such as purplish, pink or grayish white streaks. Stretch marks can appear anywhere, but most often found in areas of the body that have a lot of fat deposits such as thighs, buttocks, breasts, abdomen and upper arms.
Here are some risk factors that increase the occurrence of stretch marks:
pregnancy, especially if the history of pregnancy is large or twin babies
family history of stretch marks
have excess weight
drastic increase or decrease in body weight
history of corticosteroid use
Although these strokes are not harmful, they often cause loss of confidence for sufferers. Actually stretch marks cannot be completely eliminated, but the penaminginya can be disguised through the following actions:
hyaluronic acid cream, which works by increasing collagen production which will make the skin more elastic
tretnioin cream, which also increases collagen levels but is not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women because it can cause the baby's streaking
before choosing the type of therapy that you will do to overcome the complaints that you submit, it is better if you consult the dermatologist first. The doctor will carefully observe the equivalent of coolies that are on your neck and conclude whether it is true that there are stretch marks or other conditions.
to prevent the emergence of stretch marks appearing in other places, you should adopt a healthy diet, avoid a drastic increase or decrease in body weight and consumption of water 2-3 liters per day
that's all I can say, hopefully it's useful
