What Are Purple Stretch Marks?
If you’ve recently had a baby or are pregnant, gained a bit of weight, had a growth spurt, or rapidly increased your muscle size - voila! Your skin has stretched quickly, and stretch marks have come to pay you an unwelcome visit.
Before going to war with them, understand that you actually have a scar. When the skin stretches quickly, it tears. Connective fibers under the skin cannot produce the necessary elasticity to keep up with the rapid expansion. These connective tissues are made up of collagen, which is a natural building block of skin. If insufficient collagen and elastin are present to deal with this new disruption, the connecting fibers simply split apart and rupture with the new skin expansion. The result? The skins attempt to offer support and healing - via a scar!
Why Do I Have Purple Stretch Marks?
When the dermis tears, there is increased inflammation and a higher presence of blood vessels appearing in the newly disrupted skin. This is the initial phase of a stretch mark and will be indicated by a reddish or purple stretch mark hue. Your scar will lean more towards a red color and change into purple, eventually fading into white or silver.
The healing capacity of a stretch mark or scar is indicated by its varying degrees of color. Let me explain. While a stretch mark may initially start as purple, as the blood vessels fade and the inflammatory response eases up, white or silvery lines will replace the harsh colorful marks as the blood vessels shrink. So, the rule of thumb is that early stretch marks are typically red, pink, or purple and easier to treat. The older they get, the more difficult it is to treat and remove them.
Can I Get Rid Of Purple Stretch Marks?
When purple stretch marks appear on your thighs, breast, stomach, butt, back, or abdomen, you have three problems on your hands. First, the collagen structure has been altered; second, elastin has been diminished; and Lastly, swelling or inflammation is present in the skin tissues.
If you’re dealing with purple stretch marks - I have good news. Purple stretch marks are easier to get rid of than white ones. If your stretch marks are purple, that means there are still blood vessels in the surface layer of the skin.
To put it simply, collagen and elastin strengthen blood vessels. Strengthening blood vessels improves blood flow and increases the body’s ability to make more collagen, which in turn treats purple stretch marks.
How Long Will It Take To Get Rid of Purple Stretch Marks?
How long it takes to get rid of stretch marks is dependent on multiple factors such as treatment methods, lifestyle choices, skin color, and commitment level.
Purple Stretch Mark Treatment vs. Removal
Not all purple stretch mark treatments were created equal. Some over-the-counter products are designed to speed up the discoloration process of a stretch mark to help it “fade.” However, these treatments don’t do anything to remove the stretch mark. Most often, creams, oils, serums, and other topical treatments speed up the process of turning the stretch mark white or silver, thus making it less visible and “fading” it into the background of the skin.
Lifestyle & Purple Stretch Mark Removal
Lifestyle choices also significantly impact purple stretch mark removal. Just as with any scar, exposing stretch marks to the sun can pigment them. Avoid high sun exposure, and wear a high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin and stretch marks from pigmenting and increasing the scar's visibility. It’s also important to be mindful that our skin is incredibly responsive to how we treat our bodies. Hydration and exercise help with blood flow, while foods high in antioxidants help regenerate skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. On the other hand, a sedentary lifestyle, too much caffeine, and alcohol deplete essential minerals and interfere with the skin’s natural repair and healing processes.
Skin Color & Purple Stretch Mark Removal
While skin color won’t affect the development of a stretch mark, it will likely change its appearance. Stretch marks on lighter skin tones will lean towards a pinkish hue. Stretch marks on darker skin tones will typically appear lighter than the natural skin color, making them appear more prominent. Therefore, it’s worth noting that specific stretch mark removal methods (like laser stretch mark removal) for darker skin tones may result in skin discoloration.
Healing Stretch Marks From the Inside Out
Any type of real skin healing takes time. Commitment and consistency are necessary to get rid of purple stretch marks. The truth is that there are some products on the market that can improve the appearance of stretch marks in as little as one hour. We’ll get to that in just a moment. Treating stretch marks over time allows for cumulative results as plump and healthy skin requires healing at deeper skin layers, not just surface level.
Let’s take a look at how you can get rid of purple stretch marks for good.
Natural Remedies to Fade Purple Stretch Marks
Are Natural Creams & Moisturizers Effective At Removing Stretch Marks?
Many stretch mark removal creams on the market aren’t safe for pregnancy and may cause rashes and allergic reactions. But, can natural alternatives actually help, and are they effective at removing stretch marks?
As we mentioned earlier, creams and moisturizers don’t solve the core problem of removing stretch marks. In fact, a recent University of Michigan Health System study found that most topical treatments designed to improve the appearance of stretch marks aren't evidence-based. The study discovered that the backbone of stretch mark removal lies in the skin's elastic fiber network, which is disrupted when the skin stretches. In other words, it’s essential to treat stretch marks by increasing collagen and elastin.
There are so many risks associated with medical intervention for stretch marks. From scaring, skin discoloration, allergic reactions, pain, and sensitivity, to soaring costs, dangerous injections, lasers, and chemicals. There’s a high demand for safe, natural, and effective medical-grade stretch mark removal solutions.
Have You Heard of Silicone Patches for Purple Stretch Mark Removal?
While silicone patches are somewhat new and advanced in their application for stretch mark removal, they are not new to scar removal. Doctors have used silicone to remove deep scarring from invasive surgical procedures for years.
Silicone patches solve the three main causes and problems of stretch marks. When placed onto the skin, occlusion is created between the surface layer of the skin and the silicone. This unique microclimate stimulates collagen and elastin production, as well as blood flow. The result? With proper and consistent usage, stretch marks diminish and ultimately disappear!
When it was discovered that this same scar technology could be used to treat and remove stretch marks, new silicone products for stretch mark removal started to hit the marketplace. However, not all silicone patches can be trusted. It’s essential to look for all-natural, medical-grade, hypoallergenic, and clinically proven products that offer guaranteed results.
Let’s take a look at an easy, effective, and proven routine for stretch mark removal that you can start today!
