Many people will tell you about the best creams, microdermabrasion, or laser surgery, but wait, study the ennemy first.
Stretch mark treatment for women … and for men.
First fact, men can get stretch marks as well as women. Granted, men don’t get pregnant (except in movies), but they, too, can get a sudden increase in weight or growth, especially in their teen years. So stretch marks are not a women only issue.
Free stretch mark treatment : wait.
Second fact, stretch marks tend to fade over time. That’s true, don’t rub your eyes. What this means is if you do nothing, over time, those stretch marks will become less and less visible. So if they are not located in a very unwanted and difficult to hide place, leaving stretch marks alone might be the best solution, if you are not in a hurry.
Ok, maybe you are a model or an actress, so you don’t have time because your next movie or shooting is beginning next week, right after you gave birth. In that particular situation, makeup is your only savior.
For the other people, those that can afford to wait, at least your wallet will appreciate, think about the cost of undergoing laser treatment.
Third fact, every stretch mark treatment available is not designed to get rid of the stretch marks. No treatment can do that. Period. What stretch marks treatment do, more or less, is accelerate the hiding of those scars.
And the efficiency of the treatment depends a lot of how you got the stretch mark on first place, how far the damage went, and how old you are. Indeed, stretch marks are much less a probability for young people. For example young pregnant women.
For one obvious reason : young skins are more supple than older ones. Another thing to consider is how old the stretch mark is : the older it is, the harder it will be to decide whether to hide it or simply let it fade with time.
So whether you decide to go for simple makeup, glycolic acid peel or laser treatment, or else do nothing, these facts will help you make up your mind as regard to the best stretch mark treatment.
