How Do You Remove Stretch Marks David Reath Knoxville Plastic Surgeon
Hi everybody. I'm David Reath, and I'mgoing to talk about this week's TruthOMeter Tuesday question.The question we asked this week was basically a request from many of you from our previousweek. We asked about things that you wanted to knowabout, and one of the top things was stretch marks.So our question was this, quot;The only truly effective way to treat stretch marks is bysurgically removing the skin that contains the streth marks.quot;I would like to tell you that that was a quot;falsequot; or sort of a toss of a coin, but the factof the matter is, that's true.
The problem is this: stretch marks are reallyscars. And there's no way to eliminate a scar totally either than to remove the skin thatcontains the scar. People have tried different creams, peoplehave tried different salves, people hvae tried laser. None of these things really work onstretch marks. They're still there, and quite honestly I think the results for most of thesethings are not worth what you're going to pay for them.Now it is true that as time goes on stretch marks may fade a little bit, as do scars.But they won't go away unless you remove the skin that contains the scars.So I'm sorry to tell you all that the answer
to that is true. Most of you already knowthis, and got it right. So let's find out who won this week.Britney Phillips. Britney, congratulations, you're this week's winner.You get a $100 gift card, come on into the office. Pick that up. We'd love to see you.I thank everybody for playing this week, we had a great number of responses, and we'regoing to try to come up with a really good, interesting questionfor you again next week. So, see you then.
Best Way to Get Rid of Old Stretch Marks
What is the best way to get rid of old stretchmarksé I can't stand looking at these marks in the mirror anymore. Have another baby so that the new stretchmarks cover them up. I'm serious. And don't you dare suggest aCesarean section. Prevention would have been easier. Preventioné But then I wouldn't have had acute little baby at the end. I meant applying moisturizing creams as everythingexpanded or minimized weight gain so your skin didn't have to stretch more than it hadto.
Will moisturizing creams work nowé It will reduce their appearance, but it won'teliminate them. Kind of like wrinkle cream whose job is tohide the wrinkles. Makeup would work if you really wanted to. So would stretch pants and long shirts. ButI don't want to cover it all up. Stretch marks are scars left as the upperand lower levels of the skin separate and stretch. One of the few ways that will getrid of old stretch marks is lasers. Do I need to ask for a laser pointer for Christmasé
No. I'm referring to the same laser treatmentsthey use to burn hair follicles to leave smooth skin or burn away the upper layers of skinto eliminate tattoos. That sounds painful. I don't think it is much more painful thanthe women who get their eyebrows tweezed or threaded or otherwise plucked and pulled out. Are there herbal creams or rubs that eliminatestretch marksé No. Well, plenty sold to do that but nonethat actually do that. I heard that diaper rash creams could hidestretch marks.
Yes, but the thick layers of zinc oxide aremore obvious. I meant Vaseline. It'll moisturize the skin, giving you a healthyglow, but it won't get rid of the stretch marks.

Are you tired of looking at those stretchmarks, maybe you just had a baby or you've been working outé My name is Keeley Selvagewith quot;Keeley Skin Solutionsquot; and I'm going to show you how to diminish the look of thosestretch marks. You can see here on our model just in the crease of his arm he has got afew little stretch marks there so what we're going to do first is apply some fresh cutlemon to the area, just like that, rub it in a little bit, let that sit for five toten minutes and what that is going to do is lemon has a natural fruit acid in it and itis going to help to exfoliate or remove the dead skin from the area and it is also verystimulating which we need for the area to
heal. So you want to wipe that off after ithas sat for five to ten minutes and then you want to apply an oil. You can use olive oilif you want, cocoa butter. I like to use almond oil and apply it to the area. Almond oil isvery hydrating and it is also stimulating. Massage it for five to ten minutes which againis going to help to break up any scar tissue. It is going to bring blood to the area andhelp the area to heal. You also want to remember to always drink plenty of water, the morewater the better and that is going to help to plump the skin and that is also going todiminish the look of your stretch marks and improve just about everything else on yourbody.
