Treating Stretch Marks
Stretch marks show up when skin is stretched beyond its elastic limit. The excessive stretching can be caused by rapid growth (growth spurts), rapid weight gain and weight loss and by pregnancy. But at the end of the day it doesn't matter how you got them, it only matters how you can get rid of them.
There are quite of few products out there that claim to be a miracle cure for stretch marks. But, don't be fooled. The only surefire way of eliminating them is through plastic surgery. Any other option will only minimize their appearance or cover them up, but won't eliminate them.
Nevertheless, surgery isn't the best option for removing stretch marks in most areas. In fact, it is only truly viable for removing abdominal stretch marks below the navel. If you are interested in removing stretch marked skin from the arms and legs, then surgery is not the best option because the limbs are round and suturing could lead to puckered skin.
As you can see, surgery can only deal with a specific area of the body. If you want to be able to deal with the rest of your body, you'll need to find effective alternatives.
So, how to get rid of stretch marks is not the question you should be asking yourself. Instead, you should spend your time looking for effective products to help reduce them. Two of the most common treatment options are microdermabrasion or stretch marks creams.
If you decide to use creams, look for those that contain snail serum or rose hip oil are ideal for treating stretch marks. These types of creams use biological activators like those found in your body's own regenerative processes to eliminate stretch marks. They trigger and control the synthesis of collagen, elastin and GAGs and the replacement of flawed skin with healthy skin cells.
With regular use (two times a day for a period of time depending on age and depth of the blemishes) a stretch mark cream will 'digest' flawed cells, gently dissolve skin lesions, reduce and even erase all signs of stretch marks. By finding the best stretch mark cream you can also destroy pathogens and trigger the regeneration of normal collagen thereby improving elasticity.
Another option for the treatment of stretch marks is microdermabrasion. This process inflicts a tiny bit of "damage" to the affected area which causes the body to react by trying to repair it.
Essentially, this helps remove damaged cells and replace them with new cells that take their place. As with creams, this procedure is a slow fix. Keep this in mind when choosing your stretch mark treatment option.
