Most women get stretch marks during pregnancy. Rapid weight gain is only one of the factors that can lead to stretch marks, genetics also plays a big part.
Many women think they are doomed to live with stretch marks, but this isn’t completely true. As a matter of fact, several different procedures and treatments exist that can help you reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Laser therapy, surgery, and other resurfacing techniques are popular procedures for helping treat stretch marks.
Surgery is an effective way of removing pregnancy stretch marks, but the only problem is that some stretch marks will appear hard-to-treat areas like the upper arms and breast. These cannot be treated with a surgical procedure.
In other cases, laser therapy can also be a good choice, however, the cost of the treatment may be beyond your budget. Other resurfacing techniques (like chemical peels and dermabrasion) can be painful and require a couple of weeks of recovery.
Microdermabrasion and Stretch Mark Removal
The gentlest form of resurfacing the skin is through microdermabrasion. It will take longer to produce the desired results, but you will have a greater control over the procedure. A normal session may last 40 minutes to 1 hour.
Microdermabrasion inflicts a small amount of “damage” to the treated area with the use of abrasive micro-crystals. The body responds to this injury by producing new, healthier cells to displace the damaged skin cells. You should notice a difference in your stretch marks after several sessions.
Aluminum oxide and sodium bicarbonate crystals are the most common materials used for traditional microdermabrasion. Neither one is toxic and both have antiseptic qualities. In fact, one of the greatest benefits is that they are both inexpensive which make the treatment affordable.
Microdermabrasion, unlike other resurfacing techniques, can be used anywhere on the body. This procedure can also help rejuvenate your skin by removing wrinkles, fine lines, and even age spots. As a matter of fact, it can be used once every six months as part of your anti aging routine.
If you still want to stay within your budget, you can purchase home microdermabrasion creams that work in much the same way as traditional microdermabrasion. In this case, micro-crystals are added to a gentle cream for stretch marks that can easily be applied in the comforts of your own home. Be warned, however, that microdermabrasion stretch mark creams are generally gentler than traditional microdermabrasion and therefore, take longer to show results.
In fact, some creams are gentle enough to use every day. Some creams are made with natural skin moisturizer ingredients that help relieve irritation caused by micro-crystals.
