Stretch Mark Treatment

A lot of women hate having stretch marks but they are a fact of life for almost all women that have children.  Stretch marks can range from very small almost invisible to deep marks that cover large areas.

There is more than one way to treat stretch marks today.  There are natural methods but you can also have stretch marks treated with lasers, surgery and microdermabrasion.

Of all the ways of removing stretch marks on the market today, I would choose one of two options depending on your budget.  For cheap and easy method of stretch mark treatment, I would use a cream like Trilastin.  It takes a couple of months or maybe more depending on how bad your stretch marks are but you can pick the product up for under $80 and that should last you a long time before and after stretch marks treatmentbut that will depend on how big the area is that you are treating.  I used it and found really good results.  The main reason I used it was cost – I just couldn’t afford laser treatments.

If you have the money, laser treatments might be the way to go for you.  Prices are different depending on the clinic and also the size of the area to be treated.  The cost is per treatment and the deeper or larger the stretch marks, the more treatments you will need.  There can be a little bit of pain and swelling but it is not like having surgery.  Your skin will probably get a bit red and tender for a couple of days after each treatment but it is not too bad unless you can’t deal with pain at all.

You can also get some surgeries to get rid of stretch marks but it is not always successful and is really expensive.  Your medical insurance will not cover this kind of surgery so you will have to pay the cost on your own.  Some women that have saggy stomach after having baby like to have abdominoplasty done.  This removes extra skin and muscle from the stomach so that the remain skin is much tighter and not sagging.  You will have a small scar from this surgery and like anytime surgery is involved, there are risks.  If you are interested, you could talk to a plastic surgeon or visit your family doctor who can refer you to doctors in your town that can do this procedure for you.

It is nice that now women have options to deal with their stretch marks.  Most of these choices didn’t exist even ten years ago.  I wonder what will happen in another ten years!
