Stretch Marks Treatment

Overtimes stretch marks will diminish, but they will not disappear completely.

The use of proper sun protection including daily use of sunscreen is essential in preventing or reducing the risk of developing stretch marks. Moisturizers can also help keep skin healthy and hydrated.

In addition there are also a variety of medical treatment options available. Tretinoin creams may help improve the appearance of recent stretch marks. It is also important to note that this cream can sometimes cause irritation and is often ineffective for the treatment of older stretch marks.

Procedures such as pulsed dye lasers and microdermabrasion are also commonly used for treating stretch marks.
