Stretch Marks Treatment
Stretchmarks are nothing but tearing scars in deep layer of skin (Dermis) whenever rapid growth of body as in pregnancy, puberty, rapid weight gain or even with rapid weight loss with intense workout and stringent diet plan. It can be seen in lower abdomen, thighs, hips, breasts and armpits.
As these are scars in deep layer of dermis no creams used during pregnancy prevent stretch marks as per available studies. If weight gain is healthy and gradual, stretchmarks are less likely.
Stretchmarks are difficult to erase although some promising advanced treatment option like carboxy therapy, LASERS etc can induce healing and stimulation of collagen elastin synthesis can reverse the changes to variable extent depending upon individual. Results thus are variable.
