What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks appear as small, depressed streaks on the skin, and commonly occur on the abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts and buttocks. These marks are caused by sudden changes in the size of the body, like during pregnancy or when we experience rapid weight gain. During these rapid changes, the elastine and collagen fibers in our skin tear from all the stretching, resulting in stretch marks.

The appearances of stretch marks also differ depending on your skin’s color. Most stretch marks start out pink, then turn reddish brown or dark brown, before fading to a silvery color over time.

How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks

The best way to get rid of stretch marks is to treat them at an early stage. This is when the marks are purple or red. When the stretch marks turn silvery or white, they can be much harder to treat.

Here are some ways you can get rid of stretch marks:

Stretch Mark Treatment #1: Lotions

Moisturizing your skin with lotion can help improve its appearance and elasticity. By hydrating your skin, it is less likely to tear and cause marks when it stretches. Applying lotions on new stretch marks and areas where they are likely to appear works significantly, but may not be as effective on older marks.

Stretch Mark Treatment #2: Vitamin C

The increased intake of vitamin C can help increase the production of collagen, which can minimize the appearance of early-stage stretch marks. 500mg of vitamin C taken as an oral supplement is often recommended.

Stretch Mark Treatment #3:  Glycolic Acid and Retin-A

Both products boost your skin’s elasticity and collagen production. However, these products are not recommended for pregnant or nursing women.

Stretch Mark Treatment #4: Laser treatments

Laser treatments are a popular solution to stretch marks. The use of lasers promotes the production of healthy collagen. Different types of laser treatments are used depending on how old or entrenched the stretch marks are.

Stretch Mark Treatment #5: Other non-invasive solutions

Stretch marks can also be treated using various non-invasive techniques. A wide array of non-surgical treatments for stretch marks are offered at Vietura Aesthetic Lifestyle. From Deep Chemical Peels to Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, these solutions leave your skin free from dreaded stretch marks so you can enjoy smooth, flawless skin.
