Before starting Dermaclara, I had worked in the medical industry for over 10 years, spending a majority of my time in the plastic surgery department learning everything from total reconstruction to the stages of skin healing. I assisted in surgeries during the day and at night I educated myself on everything skin; I wanted to understand every level of the skin healing process and how best to assist it.
About 5 years ago I had a medical emergency where I had to have my appendix removed. The surgery left me with a nasty scar, but my doctor gave me silicone patches to help heal and reduce its appearance, and they worked amazingly. Then about a year ago my sister became pregnant and she was worried about her stretch marks, that was when I had my light bulb moment! Stretch marks are scars! Silicone can be used not only to fade scars but can also be used to safely prevent and treat stretch marks.
That’s when Dermaclara was born.
Many people don’t know this, but the molecular size of most oils and moisturizers is too large to penetrate the first layer of skin. The second layer of skin, the dermis, is where stretch marks occur, so it is important to keep the dermis hydrated so that the skin can stretch without tearing and causing a stretch mark. When we apply oils and moisturizers to our skin we are only preventing our skin from drying out, we are not actually treating damage that is already there.
Silicone patches work by creating a natural microclimate that pulls moisture from within the body, up through all the surfaces of your skin. This allows the dermis to receive the moisture and collagen it needs to prevent it from tearing as our belly grows during pregnancy and shrinks post-pregnancy.
Moisturizers and serums that are able to penetrate the first layer of skin often contain active ingredients that are unsafe for people trying to get pregnant, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Silicone patches work by naturally pulling moisture through all layers of your skin making it 100% pregnancy safe.
Customers who have followed my recommended treatment routine have been able to remove stretch marks of all ages in as little as 30 days, and they have even been able to tighten any loose skin they may have from their pregnancy.
Good luck! And thank you for being a part of the Dermaclara family.
