How to get rid of stretch marks

By Dr Know It All | Jan 24, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 13 ]

MANY people find they develop stretch marks during puberty as their bodies change shape. Others people might get them if they put on a lot of weight in a short time, for example, during pregnancy.

They occur when the skin is pulled by quick growth or stretching. Usually the skin is quite elastic, but if it is overstretched scars and stretch marks form. When they first form they tend to fade over time.

You can use creams and foundations to make them less obvious, but if you want to get rid of them altogether you will have to see a dermatologist or even a plastic surgeon.

The options available range from surgery to laser treatment. - kidshealth.org;.bodyrenewal.co.za; medicinenet.com
