Stretch marks or striae (medical terminology) are a form of scarring on the skin. They are caused when the skin loses its collagen and elastin resulting from over stretching the skin to the point of breaking down. Stretch marks can happen when the skin is quickly stretched. These usually occur with rapid growth in puberty or weight gain over a short period of time from pregnancy or muscle building. In addition, striae may occur in some condition which causes thinning of the skin layers such as Cushing's syndrome or when an individual is exposed to prolonged steroids use.
Researchers had created Trilastin SR to remove the stretch mark scarring by treating the root of the problem. Unlike Trilastin, laser treatment does not remove stretch marks but instead, only attempt to cover up the scar tissues. The complex formula uses a custom mixture of key elements to restore collagen and elastin, which are the important components of the skin and hence, return elasticity and suppleness.
Understanding the skin's anatomy and physiology, the skin serves as a protective barrier and therefore, not all the ingredients that are applied to the skin will be absorbed fully. Here, the brand has come up with a new delivery technology called FillingSpheres that effectively guide the exclusive stretch mark complex deep into the targeted areas.
How this works is by creation of these tiny permeable collagen-filled spheres or microspheres. Initially, these microspheres will be in dehydrated form to make it more easily to penetrate into the epidermis where they will then absorb water to produce a collagen-rich hydrating serum. Once the spheres swell up with water, the tiny spheres now have expanded in size and basically filled up the wrinkled and deeply furrowed tissue. As a result, this quickly reduced the depth and length of the stretch mark furrows. On top of that, once the surrounding tissue starts to lose its moisture, the microspheres which also act as water reservoir, begin to release collagen-rich moisture back to the skin.
Then a Virtual Patch employs an association of marine collagen, serine and some high weight molecules to form a protective "micro-net". This "micro-net" acts as a virtual skin bandage to prevent moisture from escaping from the targeted skin and at the same time enhancing the skin's natural barrier. Virtual Patch technology also utilizes serine as a transfer agent to deliver key elements to the affected areas. This system works hand-in-hand with the FillingSpheres to maximize the efficiency of Trilastin-SR stretch mark complex.
Now, Trilastin SR has introduced another astonishing system that is called Sequenced Diffusion Delivery System or SDDS for sustained timed-release. This system creates a protective, invisible skin patch while the functional ingredients will be slowly released to the targeted areas. Consequently, the skin will be getting a continuous supply of important ingredients for the repair of stretch marks until the next application of the stretch mark cream. Scientists believed that repair and growth of cells are often greatest while a person is sleeping. Therefore, during the long hours of sleep, this system provides another advantage to the product. With this newly added technology, users will find the results to be more effective than before.
At this time, Trilastin SR is the only stretch mark product utilizing these advanced technologies. It is no doubt that this brand is quite sensitive to the needs of its consumers as it routinely carries out research on their products to meet the user's high expectation.
