How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks - Do Creams Really Help?

By Danna Schneider

Most girls and women have stretch marks in common areas on their thighs, butt, breasts and pelvic juncture where their thighs meet there waist from rapid weight gain or loss, sudden growth height wise, and pregnancy. Stretch marks are caused when the tissue underneath the skin is suddenly pulled by rapid growth or stretching of the surrounding skin (common in adolescent girls and boys due to the rapid and sudden growth spurts that happen around that time), and are often difficult to get rid of.

Although stretch marks may fade over time, they usually do not completely go away without the help of an effective stretch mark cream treatment or expensive dermatologist-administered treatments such as agressive laser therapy of agressive microdermabrasion treatment.

Although the skin is usually fairly elastic, when it's overstretched such as during times of rapid growth as in pregnancy, rapid weight gain and loss, or growth spurts, the normal production of collagen (the most important protein that actually makes up the connective tissue in your skin) is disrupted. As a result, white scars called stretch marks may form, which stand out from the normal pigmentation of the skin due to their bright white or pinkish/purplish color.

How to Effectively Get Rid of Stretch Marks

Getting rid of stretch marks involves a little patience and determination in administering an effective stretch mark cream only the affected areas, as well as perhaps using a little extra pressure when massaging the cream into the affected area, for added absorption as well as adding more pliability the area and circulation, which helps to regulate the pigmentation back to its normal state. You should see a substantial improvement in the marks and coloration within a few weeks of this technique and administration of the product.

Some of the best natural stretch mark products on the market today have a superior ability to dramatically increase the skins elasticity, and prevent and treat stretch marks by preventing their root causes - lack of elasticity and sudden stretching or trauma. If you aren't so sure, I encourage you to do a little investigation on how to get rid of stretch marks and you'll probably see before and after pictures of people who have used good creams and had some pretty amazing results in doing so.

Some of the suggestions commonly given to improve the appearance of stretch marks are typically to visit a dermatologist for fairly expensive and lengthy therapies which help to lessen the appearance of the stretch marks, and help them to "blend in" with the rest of the skin rather than remain hyper-pigmented or not pigmented at all.

There is also a fairly good suggestion of using self tanners as a cover up for problem areas, but while this does improve their appearance for many people, it still does not actually get rid of the stretch mark itself, rather it covers them up temporarily, so it's really kind of like treating the symptom instead of the disease itself - if you know what I mean.

Stretch Mark Cream - How it Helps Get Rid of Stretch Marks and Why
There may be several ingredients in creams which, together, smooth out the skin, and "blends" the pigmentation back together, helping the redness or white appearance, while helping to bring the skin back together (almost as if it's "filling in the gaps") that were caused when the trauma of rapid growth, weight gain or weight loss occurred.

A good cream will help to fade and diminish existing stretch marks, and will also be an EXCELLENT preventive tool if you are planning a pregnancy and are worried about getting stretch marks. Prevention is key, because if you catch them before they are fully formed, due to dramatically increased skin elasticity, they will never become a problem!

  • 10% Squalene Oil
