Thought your stretch marks were for life?
They certainly can be quite stubborn and difficult to treat.
That’s because a stretch mark is essentially a scar, caused when the skin is stretched rapidly and/or significantly, causing the fibres in the middle layer of the skin (the dermis) to become damaged.
They are often associated with pregnancy but also common with weight gain or growth spurts. At first red or even blue, they fade to show white indentations in the skin.
Hope for Stretch Marks
250 Mumsnetters tried a new cream to treat their stretch marks and 81% said they would recommend it to family and friends, apparently making it the most successful product they have ever trialled.
This amazing cream is now available at Mulberry House Clinic and costs only £26.99 for a tube.
Best results are likely with twice daily treatment for 3 months, and benefits obtained should be permanent.
Stretch Mark Treatments
If the cream doesn’t give enough improvement, then there are more radical alternatives available to consider.
Thermage is a treatment system that uses radio-frequency technology to stimulate the deep tissues to regenerate, tightening the area for firmer, smoother skin. The treatment promotes cell renewal and collagen production and is suitable for body areas as well as facial rejuvenation.
Dermaroller or micro-needling is a treatment which also involves stimulating production of collagen and cell renewal for firmer, tighter skin. The procedure involves rollering the skin with a ‘prickly’ roller, which creates hundreds or thousands of tiny pin pricks. Treatment for body areas usually requires a heavier grade device, but treatment is made comfortable by use of a numbing cream.
