Getting rid of stretch marks can be challenging because they are a tear in your skin. They tend to appear after significant or quick weight gain or loss, most commonly during pregnancy. Stretch marks appear at first as red and then become white over time. However, getting professional treatments can help lighten the colour and diminish their appearance on your skin.
So, let’s go over how to get rid of stretch marks.
If you do not have stretch marks, there are some ways you can prevent them from appearing. Ensure you have a balanced diet and stay hydrated. Stretch marks appear when the skin stretches, commonly due to weight gain or weight loss. Therefore, having a balanced weight can help prevent them from appearing. Additionally, staying hydrated will ensure your skin stays soft, making it harder to tear.
If you have stretch marks, one way you can get rid of them or lessen their appearance is through microneedling. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses fine needles to penetrate the skin. This method can help eliminate stretch marks by rejuvenating your skin. It is commonly used on the abdomen or thighs where stretch marks typically appear. The punctures made through the mini needles can help brighten and tighten the skin as well, leaving your skin looking fresh and flawless.
Laser is an ideal method for stretch mark removal when your stretch marks are new and still red. The laser used during the treatment helps to break down the skin so it rebuilds itself. When the skin breaks down it produces more collagen which can result in no stretch marks. It is important to note that the laser may take multiple sessions as it depends on how new or old your stretch marks are and how many are on your body.
