How Does Microdermabrasion Get Rid Of Stretch Marks?

Stretch marks form when the layer of the skin below top layer (epidermis) called dermis tears off when the growth is rapid and when it does not have sufficient elasticity due to the over production of glucocorticoid which stops collagen fibers which aid in the elasticity of dermis. When the dermis tears and heals off, it appears like a think striae called stretch marks which are pale in color and markedly evident. Microdermabrasion directly erodes the topmost layer of the skin rejuvenating the skin and stretch marks are situated in the deeper layer called dermis, so microdermabrasion as popularly believed can not remove stretch marks by itself. But it helps in speeding up the other noninvasive methods of getting rid of stretch marks like topical cocoa butter based creams.
