Natural Stretch Mark Treatment – Treating Stretch Marks Before They Occur

Stretch Marks or Striae are lines or streaks caused by excessive stretching of your skin’s dermal connective tissues. When this middle layer of the tissue stretches excessively fast, some of it’s collagen fibres may break off. This causes the tell tale red or purple marks to appear. If not treated, these striae will become more visible over time and may even start to bleed.

Stretch Marks

This is the reason why there are a number of treatments available for stretch marks, but how to decide which one is the best? There are currently three types of treatment including topical prescription medications, laser treatment, and a natural alternative known as Retinoids. This article will review the benefits and disadvantages of each one.

Topical prescription medications such as Accutane are effective for both preventing and reducing the appearance of striae. Accutane can be taken only if you are pregnant, have other hereditary skin disorders such as psoriasis or eczema, have liver disease, have other issues that would interfere with the success of Accutane, or have an incision in the uppermost layers of your skin (a microphlebectomy). For the first few days following treatment, the redness and irritation associated with the treatment may continue, so it is recommended you keep medication with you at all times to avoid this. The use of Retinoids has been known to speed recovery and reduce scarring, especially when used early in the development of stretch marks. Retinoids help to reduce the appearance of scars caused by stretching as well as smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

While Retinoids are most effective when used during the early stages of pregnancy, they can still cause side effects if used after the baby is born. If you develop stretch marks during your pregnancy, you will most likely continue to take Retinoids or use some type of moisturizer to minimize their appearance as much as possible until your delivery date. Some women have found that using moisturizers helps prevent them from appearing during their pregnancy, although this is not a guarantee.

If you continue to develop stretch marks during your pregnancy, you may want to speak with your doctor about an alternative solution. Your doctor may recommend you use vitamin E lotion or cocoa butter on areas where the skin texture is sensitive. You can also purchase lotions, creams and even massage oils that contain Vitamin E. It is important to use a good quality product to be sure you are getting the best results for your body type. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that is highly effective in fighting free radicals, which are believed to contribute to the development of striae. It is very important to note that you should always talk to your doctor before taking any new medications, especially prescription medications.

If you continue to develop new stretch marks during your pregnancy, you may want to look into surgical options. This should only be considered if your skin has begun to heal but the appearance of the scars is not healing evenly or they are becoming more apparent. One surgical procedure that is growing in popularity is dermabrasion. This is when small pieces of your skin are removed in a controlled fashion in order to reduce the appearance of scarring. This procedure is not usually covered by insurance. If this sounds like an option for you, then speak to your doctor about the procedure.

Another natural ingredient that may work for preventing the appearance of stretch marks is called Centella Asiatica or also known as C.A. Asiatica contains enzymes that are similar to the enzymes produced in your body when you are pregnant. This means that your body will be producing less collagen and elastin, which are two of the primary components of connective tissue, which are two of the main factors that make up your skin.

These two natural ingredients can be found in a number of different products, such as lotions, creams, oils and serums. If you find a product that contains both of them, you should test it on another part of your body first. Cream, for instance, might not work on your thighs, so it would be pointless trying it on your belly or buttocks. Stretch mark treatment is usually best used before the skin actually develops stretch marks, although some treatments can actually reduce their appearance after you have them. For best results, a treatment should be performed at least a couple of months prior to the development of stretch marks on your body.
