Treatments to try before laser stretch mark removal

Posted on 11 Jul, 2012

If you have stretch marks, you can get rid of them completely by finding a reputable laser treatment clinic and going through a laser stretch mark removal procedure. Before you take this step, however, there are other remedies you might want to try.

Try these treatments and methods:

• Lose weight gradually. Stretch marks are often caused by sudden weight gain (i.e. during pregnancy). You can start to improve the appearance of your stretch marks by eating a healthy diet and exercising so that you lose weight gradually.
• Massage your skin to improve blood circulation
• Use a moisturiser containing Vitamin C, Vitamin E, retinoic acid, glycolic acid, or a combination of these
• Drink plenty of water
• Protect your skin from the sun with a good sunscreen

Some of these methods may be effective at improving the appearance of stretch marks, especially those that aren’t so noticeable or that have just formed.

If you have older or more obvious stretch marks, or none of these methods has made a difference to the appearance of your skin, it is time to get in touch with a laser stretch mark removal clinic. In just a few treatments, you can drastically improve the appearance of your skin.
