If the very idea of squeezing into this summer’s trendy monokinis / cutout swimsuits / itsy bitsy bikinis fills you with dread through fear of exposing your stretch marks, then now is the time to take the bull by the horns and deal with the problem once and for all.

Of course, the easiest way to get around the problem is to adapt the style of swimsuit to the problem. For example, vintage-style swimwear will be popular this year, and many shops will be stocking bikini shorts that are high-waisted and low-legged – the perfect solution if your stretch marks affect your hips and lower stomach.

If you are looking for a longer-term solution then you should consider stretchmark removal. While it may not erase them completely, the treatment can significantly improve their appearance, making them much less noticeable.

The Laser Treatment Clinic uses a combination of microdermabrasion and laser therapy to remove the damaged superficial layers of skin and stimulate skin renewal. The laser also boosts collagen production, ensuring that the new skin has the support and elasticity that was lacking in the stretch marked skin.

Start now, and you’ll be wearing your swimwear with pride this summer!
