Get Rid of Stretch Marks and Feel More Confident This Swimsuit Season
The sun is out, the pool is at a refreshing 77 degrees. It’s officially swimsuit season. Still, all that working out and calorie watching hasn’t eliminated those unsightly stretch marks. Whether they’re from pregnancy, weight gain or loss, the vast majority of women have the little lines on their breasts, hips, butt, belly or thighs.
Although they’re extremely common, many women are still self-conscious about stretch marks. Sudden growth spurts from pregnancy, weight gain or loss, puberty or increased muscle mass, can cause the skin to stretch. When it’s stretched out, the collagen bundles underneath tear apart and when the skin goes back to its previous state the outside layer may appear wrinkled and scarred with marks. Some women’s skin is thicker and has more elasticity, making them less prone to stretch marks. That’s mostly due to genetics.
Stretch mark reduction
Completely eliminating all the scarring left behind isn’t possible. But there are way to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Creams that contain retinoids can help minimize the marks. Fractional CO2 laser pixels are another way to dramatically reduce stretch marks. Using lasers, collagen and elastin growth is stimulated. The procedure is relatively painless and there’s no downtime.
No one can diet or exercise away those little lines that can cause many women to feel seriously self-conscious. Regain that confidence on the beach and at the pool by getting rid of those stretch marks.
