how to erease stretch marks
The way to erase Stretch Marks can vary greatly depending on how much money you want to spend and your pain tolerance levels.
Surgical and Laser Treatment to erase Stretch Marks :
As most Stretch Marks occur on the abdomen, a tummy tuck is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure that helps get rid of them. The affected area is cut away and then the remaining skin is stretched taut, creating a smoother skin appearance. A similar procedure can be done for other parts of the body as well.
Laser treatment as a way to erase Stretch Marks has come a long way and many people have benefited from this option. Lasers essentially excise away the affected tissue and the energy from the laser stimulates new collagen, a major building block of the skin. The collagen helps rebuild the fibers in the tissue to help fill in the affected areas. Laser , as a treatment for stretch marks, is not as expensive as cosmetic surgery . but it can be cost prohibitive for some people. In addition, insurance doesn't cover cosmetic or laser procedures as a treatment to erase stretch marks.
Natural Treatment for Stretch Marks :
There are creams, lotions and oils that can also be rubbed in the affected areas that are supposed to greatly erase stretch marks. Because each person is different with unique body chemistry and genetic history, one treatment for Stretch Marks may work for some while it may not work for others. Some experimentation may be needed for those lotions and other natural options of treatment for stretch marks.
Cocoa butter or shea butter can soften Stretch Marks as they disappear or fade.creams are rather effect options of treatment for Stretch Marks because they help fade the ugly red color of fresh, new marks. Evening primrose oil, flaxseed oil and even grape seed oil are other natural, popular ways to treat the affected areas.
