While many women wear their stretch marks proudly as a symbol of motherhood, others want to cover them up and feel self-conscious about their appearance. This is especially true if they are located on the upper thighs and buttocks and noticeable when wearing a bathing suit in public. With the help of Dr. Fiona Wright and her team at Skin MD and Beyond, you can find a solution that meets your needs to reduce or eliminate stretch marks from the skin.
What Causes Stretch Marks?
Most stretch marks are caused by the skin being stretched rapidly and beyond its normal capacity. This can typically happen due to pregnancy, rapid weight gain or loss, hormonal changes, or even extreme exercise routines that cause the skin to be overworked. The result is thin, linear marks on the surface of the skin, known as striae. While some made fade with time, others may need targeted treatment to reduce their appearance.
What Can I Do About Stretch Marks?
Below are just a few of the more common treatments that might be recommended to those who struggle with stretch marks on the body:
- Topical prescriptions creams
- Photofacials and light therapies
- Chemical peels
- Microneedling treatments
- Laser resurfacing with ResurFX®
Which Treatment Is Best for Me?
The type of stretch mark present will help Dr. Fiona Wright determine the best treatment for you. Additionally, certain treatments are more conservative than others, and we may recommend starting with a noninvasive, affordable treatment first to see if results can be achieved in that manner. If changes do not occur, we can suggest other treatment options based on the severity of the stretch marks, the type of stretch mark, and their location.
