Internal Stretch Marks Treatment And How To Reduce Stretch Marks

Stretch mark only appear because something is weakening your skin. Most of the time this is due to hormones, stress, poor diet, lack of circulation to the skin, etc. These types of things make the skin weak and less supple and elastic. When stretched, the skin is far more susceptible to damage under these circumstances.
Therefore, it only makes sense that getting in tip-top shape will help your skin too. When you're at the peak of your health, your skin is nourished, healthy and vibrant. Not only that, but it heals faster!
If you're really serious about getting rid of your stretch marks, you should make an effort to improve your health too. It will probably speed up your results (as well as providing you with a whole host of other benefits).
If health isn't your thing right now, you shouldn't overwhelm yourself just because you're desperate to remove your stretch marks. Start slow, and just try to keep your progress steady.

Some must-do tasks for your health and your stretch marks:

  • Exercise (this gets the nutrients and oxygen circulating around your body and to your skin)
  • Drink enough water (keeps you and your skin hydrated)
  • Eat skin-healthy foods like brightly colored fruits and vegetables, salmon or other oily fish, nuts and beans
  • Supplement with a good quality multi-vitamin
It takes a little work to get rid of stretch marks, but you and I both know that it will be worth it in the end.

How To Reduce Stretch Marks
There are several different ways to reduce or possibly reverse stretch marks, some work; others are less effective. From natural ways to laser surgery to surgical removal, it just depends on the severity of the stretch marks and how much you want to spend.  

When using traditional methods, it is difficult to accurately gauge just how effective these products can be. Many products claim to reduce or even reverse stretch marks, but there is little scientific data in proving these to be true. For the most part, these natural remedies like oils, creams, lotions, etc. are more effective on fresh stretch marks. But even in the case of freshly made stretch marks, the best the product can do is helping them fade just a bit. You may want to try the traditional way of reversing stretch marks or at least make them less obvious. These include such things as: lotions, creams or even seeing a doctor and/or cosmetologist about adapting to a regular diet and exercise regime. There are many products on the market today that claim they reverse stretch marks, but watch out…many are also fraudulent and fail to produce the results you may want or expect from them. And many of these ointments are ineffective on old, well-developedstretch marks. In cases like these, a more involved treatment may be the only option to reverse stretch marks or at best make them less noticeable. 
However, there are benefits in the use of natural remedies in the reversal of stretch marks or making them less obvious. They are much less expensive and less involved than cosmetic dermatology procedures; you can find the products almost anywhere i.e. stores, the internet; and their use does not require visits to a spa or clinic and the better known brands are pretty safe to use. However, there are other alternatives to diminish stretch mark scars without having to go through surgery or laser treatment. 
Chemical peels that people use to rid themselves of wrinkles on their face as well as doing away with age spots can also be used in treating stretch mark scars on other parts of the body. By doing this, a chemical solution is placed on a cotton pad or sponge or brush and applied to the affected area. The chemicals then literally ‘peel' off the top layers of the damaged skin including any dead skin that, in turn, allows the growth of new skin cells. There might be a slight tingling or burning sensation during treatment, but nothing to be concerned about. But keep in mind, multiple treatments may be necessary to get the results you are looking for, and this may not be helpful to some people. 
Then there is the option of Microdermabrasion. This is another way of improving the appearance of the top layer of thestretch marks but does not reverse stretch marks completely. Microdermabrasion uses a very fine crystal spray that ‘blasts' the upper layer of the skin. The dead skin cells are removed which allows new, healthy skin cells to take their place. New skin cells then produce more elastin and collagen…the two important components of healthy, younger looking skin. This is a painless procedure that takes no more than an hour to complete and there is very little recovery time. But to reap the maximum benefit of this treatment, it needs to be repeated anywhere from five to twelve times depending on the area and condition of the skin to begin with. But keep in mind; although Microdermabrasion is an effective way of making the appearance of the area look better, it does not reverse stretch marks completely. The only thing that can do that is the Reverse Stretch Marks system. 
Finally, you can always resort to blue light therapy. Blue light therapy is used more for mild to severe acne, but is also sometimes used to improve the appearance of stretch marks. With blue light therapy, it allows the application of photosensitive get to the skin, which then is exposed to bursts of light energy. Many patients notice a difference, but again, for the complete reverse of stretch marks, it is just unrealistic. 
Your best bet would be to contact a Cosmetic Dermatologist about the different kinds of treatments and what would work best for you depending on the condition of your stretch marks.

Stretch marks often occur when there are hormonal changes which impact collagen and skin elasticity. A proper stretch mark cream can provide the nutrients required to help restore the collagen and elasticity in the skin which, in turn, may end up making stretch marks a thing of the past.
