STRATAMARK

Stratamark® is the only FDA-approved topical medical device, clinically proven for the prevention and treatment of Striae Distensae( stretch marks).

Intended use

Stratamark® is used for the prevention and treatment of stretch marks, which can occur in the following situations:

  • Pregnant women.
  • Children / adolescents with growth spurts.
  • People with significant weight loss / gain.
  • People passionate about bodybuilding.
  • After breast augmentation / reduction operations and abdominoplasty.
  • For the treatment of existing stretch marks (as monotherapy or in combination with invasive treatment methods).
Treatment results & benefits (How it works)

Stratamark® was developed to spread easily over large surface areas of the body, making it ideal for use on the buttocks, abdomen, thighs, breasts and back.

When used as directed, Stratamark® dries to form a silicone gel sheet, a protective layer that is gas permeable and waterproof, which hydrates and protects your stretch marks, allowing the skin to normalize the collagen synthesis cycle.

Stratamark® is used to soften and flatten stretch marks, reduce redness and discoloration associated with stretch marks, as well as relieve the itching and discomfort of stretch marks.

Stratamark® was developed for treatment and prevention of all types of stretch marks, particularly those covering a wide surface area, resulting from pregnancy, adolescent growth spurts, weight gain, or bodybuilding. 

Stratamark® is the first registered topical medical device, clinically proven for the prevention and treatment of stretch marks.

  • Quickly relieves symptoms: reduces the feeling of itching, burning and discomfort.
  • When using protective equipment (surgical mask, goggles, etc.), the application of a thin layer of Stratacel® in the pressure points, significantly reduces the risk of skin reactions, such as contact dermatitis.

Prevention of stretch marks during pregnancy:

Stratamark® is recommended for use from the beginning of the second trimester (13 weeks) or at the first sign of stretch marks. Treatment should be continued following birth for a minimum of 60 to 90 days.
