The bad news is that you cannot completely eliminate stretch marks (striae). The good news: it will slowly fade over time. Stretch marks appear in pregnancy when the skin stretches quickly. Stretch marks may be found in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and breasts.
Creams, oils, or massage lotions will not remove stretch marks, but will soften and flex the skin. You don't have to use expensive creams or oils, enough with good cocoa butter or body cream.
For several months and years, stretch marks will fade and have the same color as the skin. Try to be patient. You may not like stretch marks, but it will improve in about 6 months.
You may try several sports that use muscles in the area of the body that has stretch marks. Although it won't eliminate it, exercise will help shape the area and disguise stretch marks. The combination of exercise and eating healthy foods may also help restore the body after giving birth.
Doctors can prescribe creams that contain vitamin A, such as tretinoin (Retin-A). Creams should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding because they may harm babies in your womb. So, it's important to use effective contraception if you use tretinoin.
Many doctors will not prescribe creams that contain vitamin A unless you have given birth.
Talk to your doctor before choosing laser therapy or skin surgery. Your doctor may recommend other ways to help restore your body.
