Whether one gets stretch marks during adolescent growth-spurts, yo-yo dieting, extreme overweight, weightlifting or during the late stages of pregnancy, when skin is fragile and it is stressed by overstretching causing the immune system to fire an inflammatory reaction that may further damage the weakened collagen and elastic fibers deep within the dermis, a new way is here to prevent stretch marks and improve the appearance of those scars that the body forms to repair skin damage. Treatment with enzymes and skin regeneration activators from a naturally occurring serum strengthens fragile skin with the same amino acids they liberate by dissolving scar tissues.
With so many women being affected by the form of scarring within the dermis that shows up on the surface of the skin as stretch marks, it’s no wonder why stretch marks removal and prevention are such hot topics. Scarring can be much more than a badge of honor after laboring to bring a baby into the world.
Giant stride in the treatment of scars and stretch marks
But now there’s hope with the discovery, by pure chance, of this naturally occurring serum secreted for its own skin repair by a little creature having soft tissues with cells and skin matrix molecules very similar to those of human skin.
Some of the benefits of the serum were first noticed by peasants in Chile manipulating the snails they had collected in orchards and vineyards —where they were considered to be pests— to sell them live in gourmet markets where they are highly valued by many European people. In one peasant’s words: “We noticed that our hands were very soft and that any dark spots or scars disappeared quickly”. His wife added, “The effects were so surprisingly rejuvenating that we felt we came across the elixir of youth”.
To make a long story short about the drifts of an accidental discovery that started way back in 1980, we can now say that in clinical trials doctors have proven the serum repairs skin damaged by photoaging. In other clinicals it has been proven to heal dermatitis caused by exposure to radiation as used in radiotherapy for cancer (the cutaneous inflammatory reaction and the degenerative changes in the skin following excessive, chronic, or therapeutic exposure to ionizing radiation). It strengthens fragile skin and regenerates wounded tissues without abnormal scarring.
Just like butt beatification the serums’ safety and toxicological profile makes it safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding and can thus help pregnant women prevent and get rid of stretch marks.
Topical products that include the serum support the innate immune system at the site where skin cells and connective tissues are stressed or irritated (inflammed), strengthen and tighten loose skin, dissolve scar tissues with enzymes, supply oxygen transporting proteins that boost collagen production, and thus prevent and greatly diminish the appearance of those scars within the dermis known as stretch marks.
Scientific Validation of the Benefits of the Biological Serum
The molecular basis for the regenerative properties of the serum have been established after screening and clinical trials by scientists from the Department of Biological Sciences, School of Natural Sciences, Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey; the Hospital Universitario de la Princesa, Universidad Autonoma, Madrid, Spain; and the Dermatology Service of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, as reported in the January 2008 issue of the Journal of Pharmacology and Physiology of the Skin.
