How do I remove or get rid of stretch marks ? 

This is is a common question, especially amongst women. When rapid growth or weight gain occurs, for example during puberty or pregnancy, these red or purple marks appear. Over time, they fade to white and become less obvious, but many people find them unsightly and wish to remove them.


Many people think that creams containing cocoa butter reduce the appearance of or even get rid of stretch marks, although there is currently no scientific evidence to support this claim. The improved appearance may be due to the skin being hydrated and in better condition, rather than any fewer stretch marks. Vitamin E creams may have an effect, but again, there is a lack of evidence and many women find that they either do not see an effect or it takes a very long time to get rid of stretch marks. The effect of reducing the appearance of stretch marks may be enhanced by ensuring the diet contains enough vitamin E through foods such as nuts, green vegetables and sunflower seeds.


Creams containing retinol or retinoids are now thought to be more effective than vitamin E or cocoa butter to get rid of stretch marks and are available over the counter.  A number of more potent creams, such as TriLastin-SR and StriVectin-SD, are available for removing stretch marks which contain ingredients that help to repair the damage to the skin and stimulate new collagen production. Ask your doctor or physician if you are concerned about stretch marks and wish to try one of these. If you choose to use a cream to help improve the appearance of stretch marks, it is important to use it every day. Using it periodically will have no chance of improving your skin’s appearance or even get rid of stretch marks.


Laser treatment can help improve the colour of both red and white stretch marks, and reduces the difference in texture between them and normal skin.  It works by damaging the stretched skin which encourages the normal skin surrounding it to repair it, and induces the production and remodelling of collagen and elastin, two vital components of the skin. Laser treatment can be painful and expensive, particularly if repeated sessions are required.  Laser treatment may also be less effective on darker skin and won't entirely get rid of stretch marks.


It may be possible to surgically remove stretch marks. One of the worst areas for stretch marks is the lower abdomen following pregnancy. These can be exercised during a surgical tummy tuck. It is important to remember that this is an invasive surgical technique, which is expensive and involves pain and recovery time. Do not rush into a decision about surgery and be sure to have a preliminary discussion with your physician.


The appearance of stretch marks can be improved through a variety of methods. But, prevention is better than cure, so try to eat a healthy diet and regular exercise to avoid rapid weight gain, and ensure that you take good care your skin during pregnancy so you don't have to get rid of stretch marks.
