You Can Avoid Getting StretchMarks…Kinda

Let’s keep it all the way real, shall we?

The majority of women who become pregnant and carry a baby to term will get stretch marks!

There is a small lucky, fortunate and/or blessed group of women who genetically have elasticity in their skin naturally that is resistant to stretch marks.

A lot of women who do get them want to know if they can get rid of their post-pregnancy stretch marks or will they  have to live with them.

Dr. Rosemary Leonard, health expert at The UK Express explains:

Stretch marks are caused by tears in the dermis, the middle layer of the skin. This allows the blood vessels in the deep layer to show through which is why stretch marks are often red or purple in color when they first appear.

They occur when the skin has to stretch and although they are most commonly associated with pregnancy they can also occur in the growth spurt that occurs in puberty or when a person suddenly gains weight.

Some skin types are more prone to stretch marks than others and if a close relative in your family has developed them you are more at risk.

Unfortunately despite the claims that you frequently see on very expensive creams, there is very little that you can do to prevent them occurring if you happen to be prone to getting them.

The good news though is that when the skin contracts after pregnancy the blood vessels are no longer visible and the marks will fade to a silvery white colour and will be much less noticeable, although this process can take several years.

Laser therapy can help stretch marks to fade although it can’t remove them completely and typically several treatments are required. Most insurers don’t pay the cost and is usually very expensive.

The answer is yes you can get rid of them but you need time and money to make it happen.

Until next time!

The Truth About Stretch Marks, Who Gets Them, Why and Getting Rid of Them

After giving birth to four kids, my mom had zero stretch marks. Genetically, she is predisposed to not get them.

Lucky her! I was not as fortunate.

Another reason people get stretch marks is that they put on weight too quickly causing the the skin to fragment into markets.

Women with a healthy BMI might gain between 25 to 35 pounds over the course of a pregnancy, it’s hard for our skin to keep up.

Another reason people acquire stretch marks while pregnant is the hormones that are abundant during pregnancy contribute to them.

They are really hard to avoid if you are not genetically predisposed to not them. If you didn’t get them during your growth spurt during puberty, you may get them later.

Creams can help make the skin more supple to slow down their onset or lessen the darkness of them when they do arrive.

But none can help you avoid them.

One can slow the onset of stretch marks appealing by talking to the doctor or dietician about how to gain steady and moderate weight.

Once you develop them, laser therapy can help stretch marks to fade although it can’t remove them completely and typically several treatments are required. Most insurers don’t pay the cost and is usually very expensive.

The other alternative is just to embrace and accept them. Tiger stripes are par for course and the baby at the end!
