Stretch Mark Removal on The s
Stretch marks so very common, Drew.That's a common problem. Anywhere from 70 to 90% of all women have stretch marks. And what are theyé They are scars in dermis and epidermis caused by a tearing or stretching of the dermal components. So she's gonna have a treatment here with fractional erbium laser resurfacing treatment. Exactly. This is the first time we can actually treat someone with silver and white stretch marks. Before this, every time I talked to a they said it's impossible, it cannot be treated. Here we go, we're gonna go ahead and treat this area. Do you feel anythingéNo, not really, no.
We actually have someone in our audience, Anna. She's another patient. I think Anna you completed a set of treatments for thisé Yes, three treatments. So I wanna do a little bit of before and after pictures if we could of your stretch marks. Applause We cannot really see the stretch marks afterwords. Is that right, Annaé Definitely. I've got amazing results. I was a bit skeptical at first. I didn't think that there was a treatment. Congratulations. Ourian, thank you so much.Thank you.
Good luck to you.Thank you.
When to Use Stretch Mark Cream During Pregnancy
Do you know when to use stretch mark creamduring pregnancyé I know there are women who would use it themoment they got a positive pregnancy test if they thought it would prevent stretch marks. You have to start putting stretch mark creamor preventatives in place, because you can't get rid of scars once they form. But thosecreams have to do something, because I know people who have had three kids and don'thave stretch marks. About half of all women don't get stretchmarks. But I won't know if I'm in that half untilit is too late.
Your odds of stretch marks go up if you'recarrying multiples or gain a lot of weight over the pregnancy. I knew about the rapid weight gain. I've seen body builders with stretch marksbecause they bulked too fast. Which creams should I use to avoid stretchmarksé Aloe or something elseé Using a moisturizer reduces the odds of stretchmarks, and it will reduce the itching you may feel as things stretch out. Most of the creams I'm looking at have that.
Unfortunately, there's no cream proven toprevent stretch marks, though you can use moisturizers at any time. All you can do ishide it afterward. Or get laser scar removal. I wish I coulduse effective creams like I did for acne as a teen. Do not use RetinA while pregnant, thoughit would help. That stuff can cause birth defects. What about compounds with glycolic acid orwitch hazelé Glycolic acid isn't proven to do anything.Witch hazel is a skin conditioner, but it
doesn't prevent stretch marks. What can I doé If you develop those scars of maternity, wearthem with pride. I'd as easily be proud of the baby's spitup on my shirt. So switch to a one piece swimsuit after youhave the baby or cover yourself tactfully with sunscreen. No one in real life is goingto judge you for stretch marks. You're right. The baby fat matters more.
