Regu-Stretch | a stretch mark treatment by DSM


Both men and women are looking for a good stretch mark treatment.

It is estimated 90% of pregnant women, 70% of adolescent females, and 40% of adolescent males have stretch marks on their body.

Stretch marks are a form of scarring that occur when the skin is abnormally stretched and expanded in a very short period of time. They appear when the skin fails to bounce back. Abnormal stretching causes the skin’s support structure of collagen and elastin to break down or rupture.

How does Regu-Stretch work?

Before stretch marks occur there are several stages of inflammation and skin matrix degradation reactions. Regu-stretch attacks these stages in this process and stops them from happening.



Stretch marks cycle.

To prevent the appearance of stretch marks, interventions are required at multiple levels of the cascade.

REGU-STRETCH down regulates the expression of pro-inflammatory cytokines and collagen-degrading enzymes (Matrix MetalloProteinases, MMPs).

Application of REGU-STRETCH helps protect the skin against the consequences of stretching and supports the healing process, leaving skin looking healthier and smoother.
