Regu-Stretch | a stretch mark treatment by DSM

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

It is estimatedĀ 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 skinā€™s support structure of collagen and elastin to break down or rupture.



A stretch mark treatmentĀ thatā€™sĀ making stretch marks a thing of the past

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.


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.
