Stretch marks can appear from pregnancy, weight gain, puberty, and even body building. No matter where your stretch marks came from or when they appeared, Apothederm can help return your skin back to its smooth and even-toned appearance. Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream is clinically proven to visibly repair existing stretch marks. It helps build collagen in the skin, while reducing the appearance of red and silver stretch marks.
Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream uses a blend of peptides, including Heptapeptide-7, a bioactive SmartPeptide™ that boosts collagen and helps support skin tissue. Peptides applied to the skin exert their bioactivity and are then naturally broken down by the skin’s proteases into individual amino acids. Heptapeptide-7 consists of seven naturally occurring amino acids that are commonly found in the skin. This peptide sequence is modeled on natural sequences found as part of the body’s own defend and repair system such as LL-37 (the human innate immunity system). The use of Heptapeptide-7 on the skin is similar to the body’s own short bioactive peptides present in the skin and in the same manner, Heptapeptide-7 performs its function and then is broken down into amino acids which are naturally present throughout the body.
