Treatment For Stretch Marks

May 24, 2008
Stretch marks can be a frustrating problem for people who have them. Whether you just have a few stretch marks around your stomach or you're plagued with these unsightly marks in many places, most likely you are looking for a way to get rid of them.

Stretch marks are caused when the collagen under the skin is damaged. This can happen through the rapid gain of fat or muscle in one area. These marks start as red lines and then fade to whitish scars over time. Because stretch marks are the result of advanced damage to the collagen, it is extremely difficult to reduce their appearance. It is best to try to avoid developing stretch marks by controlling the pace at which you gain weight or build your muscles.

Many creams and oils are specially designed to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and can be bought over the counter at your local store. These products can help your skin become firmer and more supple, and may help reduce the appearance of some surface stretch marks. Vitamin E oil and cocoa butter are commonly used to treat the stretch marks. These products can be massaged into the skin twice a day or more. It is best to start using a cream or oil as soon as you notice stretch marks forming. The sooner marks are treated, the more likely it is that treatment will be successful.

Prescription creams are also available for the treatment of stretch marks. These may be very successful on mild stretch marks and may improve the appearance of deeper stretch marks as well. Retin-A cream is commonly used to reduce the redness in new stretch marks and may help prevent permanent scarring. However, Retin-A can ONLY be used on newer stretch marks that are still red or pink, typically less than one year old.

The most successful treatment of stretch marks is cosmetic laser surgery. Laser treatment is by far the most expensive method available, running well into the thousands of dollars when there is a large treatment area. However, laser surgery is also the best way to achieve results when trying to remove stretch marks. This method can be used on deeper and older stretch marks in addition to newer marks. Laser treatment removes, vaporizes, and breaks down the skin's tissues. Successful laser surgery depends on the result of a series of treatments over several weeks. Usually between six and eight treatments are needed to see results. Although laser surgery is generally the most effective treatment for stretch marks, this method still may be ineffective for some people. It is important to decide if you can afford such surgery even if it does not provide the results you desire.

It is important to remember that damage to the deep fibers of the skin is difficult and sometimes impossible to repair. That is why it is best to always try to prevent stretch marks before they appear. You can do this by monitoring your weight gain and muscle building closely. A healthy diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and water will also aid in preventing stretch marks.

There has been little or no results in the repair of stretch mark and scar skin damage until NOW! Through university and hospital studies, scientist have discovered a transdermal oil that will penetrate deep down to the dermis layer of skin. This oil serves as a carrier for collagen and elastin protein which will repair skin and create new cell growth, ultimately diminishing stretch marks and scars. This amazing oil is called Emu Oil. It is just now being recognized world wide in the medical field as an alternative to laser surgery.

This formula will improve any skin damage, including scars, burns, and stretch marks. Some have seen results in as little as two months on severly damaged skin. These results are not typical however. Most cases take 6 months to a year, but the results are permanant. You do not have to continue use of the creme after your skin is repaired.

REMEMBER: This is not an over night process, it takes our bodies time to produce new cells, but with constant use, it will work in most cases.

Prevention is the best solution. If you are pregnant, losing weight, or body building, using the creme while your body changes can minimize stretch marks. Body builders use on upper arms, chest, thighs and buttocks. Pregnant women use on breats, stomach and hip area.

A very unique combination of Emu Oil, Elastin, Collagen, Aloe and other ingredients designed to penetrate deep within the top 2 layers of skin to generate new cell growth and promote healing of stretch marks, scars, psoriasis, and any other problamatic skin condition. Results begin to appear within the first 6 to 8 weeks. Fragrance and dye free!
