5 Ways to Get Rid of Stretch Marks

Skin treatment

Stretch marks are a normal part of human growth. Those silvery lines are a sign of skin tearing to adapt to your usual weight gain. It isn’t a health issue, but for those who are quite conscious of them, we have some solutions for you! Follow these steps and you’ll see those insistent stretch marks drastically reduce over time!

Exfoliate well

One of the simplest methods we can offer you is good ol’ exfoliation. This is a procedure that allows any dead skin cells that have accumulated to be cleansed from your skin. This is a process best used alongside other treatment options because by removing these excess dead skin cells, you allow skin treatments to better penetrate the skin.


Microneedling is one of the best methods of stretch mark removal out there! This is a painless, non-invasive treatment- the most you’re likely to feel is slight itching! Most people tend to notice improvements around 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment and should you continue, your marks will continue to reduce over the next 6 months.

Laser Therapy

This is yet another treatment used in reducing stretch marks. It makes use of intense pulsed light to reduce visibility of stretch marks and stimulate production of collagen. This, in turn, will stimulate skin tightening and remodeling. By using the fractionated laser, the stretch marks will be treated with fractionated laser beams. The micro injuries caused by these beams will stimulate the area to tighten- i.e. smoothen.

Use of sunscreen

Using proper sun protection alone will not prevent stretch marks but it does help improve your skin’s health, which is something that could possibly make your stretch marks more noticeable than you’d like. Exposure to the sun’s rays can also cause your skin’s collagen fibers to break down- this is something that could make your skin more susceptible to stretch marks in the long run!

Stay hydrated

You’ve probably heard it before- and for a reason too! Keep yourself hydrated during the day by drinking plenty of water. But this isn’t the only way you can stay hydrated- you should also moisturize regularly. Make it a point to use moisturizer right after bathing- this will allow your skin to be more susceptible to other skin products.
While taking care of your skin is a must to ensure you don’t make your stretch marks more prominent, you’ll also need the help of certain cosmetic treatments if you want to work on seeing some major improvements. This is where DPMediSkin will help you out- call us today to schedule your appointment!
