Stretch Marks

Stretch marks are long, thin streaks or lines that can develop on the surface of the skin and are a form of scarring. Stretch marks are very common and can affect both men and women. Stretch marks cannot be prevented but there are a few tips that can be followed in order to reduce their development.

Stretch marks are medically referred to are Stria or Striae or Striae Gravidarum during pregnancy. Stretch marks don't look alike. They vary depending on how long y...ou've had them, what caused them, the location on your body and the skin type you have.

Areas most often affected by stretch marks are:
* abdomen
* buttocks
* thighs
* arms
* breasts
* shoulders

Anyone can get stretch marks but they tend to affect women more than men with around 9 out of 10 women getting stretch marks during pregnancy. It's estimated that around 7 in 10 women and 4 in 10 men develop stretch marks during puberty.

Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched extensively over a short period of time. The rapid stretching causes the Dermis (middle layer of skin) to break in places allowing the deeper skin layers to show through forming stretch marks.

The dermis is made up of strong, interconnected fibres that enable your skin to stretch as your body grows. If for example your abdomen grows rapidly over a short period, the fibres can become thin and over stretched and some may break. At that point where the skin fibres break, tiny tears develop which allow the blood vessels below to show through. This is why stretch marks are often red or purple when they first appear.

When the blood vessels eventually contract, the pale coloured fat underneath your skin will be visible and your stretch marks will change to a silvery white colour.

Stretch marks can occur:
* during pregnancy
* as a result of weight gain
* during puberty
* family history
* underlying health conditions
* prolonged medications

Symptoms of stretch marks
Before developing stretch marks the affected skin will become thin, flattened and thin. The area may also feel itchy. Stretch marks often appear slightly raised and may feel wrinkly before eventually flattening out. As the lines become flatter they will start to fade and will change colour. Stretch marks can appear in patches of parallel lines on your body. It can take years to fade and become less noticeable.



At the Claudia McGloin Clinic, we have successfully treated stretch marks using a couple of procedures. For more information call the call direct on 0719140728

6th National Aesthetic Nursing Conference

The 6th National Aesthetic Nursing Conference took place on Friday 20th January in the Liver Building in Liverpool. It was attended by over 100 Aesthetic Nurses in the industry who travelled from all over the UK and Northern Ireland and me from the Republic of Ireland.

The conference was a huge success and all presentations and speakers were amazing! Looking forward to next years conference already!


I was absolutely delighted and honoured to have been invited back for the second consecutive year as a guest speaker. I am currently the only Irish Medical Professional that has been invited to speak at the National Aesthetic Nursing Conference.


For the first time ever at the conference, JAN's consultant editor Cheryl Barton posed a motion regarding whether delegates have confidence in non-health groups injecting Botox and Fillers.

Aesthetic Nurses attending the 6th Annual Aesthetic Nursing Conference, voted unanimously (no abstainers) that they have 'No Confidence' in the provision of medical aesthetics (namely facial injections) to the general public by the non health groups.

Watch this space to the future of non medics offering Medical procedures!

If you missed the conference, here is a collection of tweets and pictures of the day! Please click on the link below:

Rosacea - The Curse of the Celts!

Rosacea is a common chronic skin condition that mainly affects the face. It is estimated that approximately 1 in 10 people will suffer from it but many are unaware that they have it. The first sign of Rosacea is often facial flushing. It commonly affects people with fair skin and can affect both men and women. It can occur at any age but typically is noticeable at the age of 30.

People with Rosacea may also experience spots, papules and pustules, persistent redness of their skin. Small blood vessels in the skin can become visible. In the most severe cases, the skin can thicken and enlarge, usually on and around the nose and some people can ecperience eye irritation.

The exact cause of Rosacea is unknown but several triggers have been identified that may make the symptoms worse in some people. These can vary from person to person. These include:

* exposure to sunlight
* stress
* cold weather
* hot drinks
* alcohol
* eating certain foods, such as spicy foods
* dermodex folliculorum (microscopic mite)

There is no cure for Rosacea, but treatments are available to control the symptoms. Treatments for Rosacea include:

* Making lifestyle changes, such as avoiding possible triggers
* Wearing sunscreen can be a good way of controlling the symptoms of facial flushing
* Creams and gels
* Metronidazole
* Azelaic acid
* Antibiotics
* Visible blood vessels associated with Rosacea are known as Telangiectasia. Treatment for Telangiectasia will usually require a referral to a skin specialist.
* IPL treatment
* It may be possible to disguise patches of persistent red skin using specially designed 'camouflage' make-up
* Colonic Hydrotherapy
* Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
