Stretch marks are common in pregnant women during the last trimester. These marks are indented streaks that can appear on various parts of the body including the breast, hips, and buttocks. There are several treatments available and laser stretch mark removal is one of them. There are some other treatments including Olive oil, Aloe vera, Tretinoin, and Microneedling. Each treatment has its benefits. Depending on the severity of your stretch marks, you might be able to remove them with only one product.
Olive oil has several uses in preventing and treating stretch marks. Its fatty acids and vitamins are great for healing damaged skin and are very effective in reducing the appearance of stretch marks. Moreover, it can help in boosting new cell growth. Adding a teaspoon of lemon juice to olive oil makes it a good exfoliating agent. It can be applied to the affected area and then washed off using lukewarm water.
Aloe vera is a great way to treat stretch marks. It helps to promote the production of collagen, which restores the elasticity of the skin. Collagen also stimulates the regeneration of new cells. This promotes skin regeneration and improves its cross-linking, which is important for healing scars and wounds.
Tretinoin is a prescription-strength form of vitamin A, and it is commonly used in skincare products. This substance promotes skin cell regeneration and helps the skin look smoother. Some studies have shown that it helps fade stretch marks, and some people have reported seeing less visible stretch marks after using the treatment. However, more research needs to be done before we can confidently recommend it for stretch mark removal.
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for stretch marks. The procedure uses a fine needle to create micro-wounds on the skin. The procedure takes about 30 minutes, but it may take a few sessions to see the full results.
A study involving the use of a topical cream containing CentellaAsiatica for stretch mark removal is underway. The purpose of the study is to assess the safety and efficacy of this plant extract. The results will also be analyzed to determine whether patients are satisfied with the cosmetic and clinical outcomes of the treatment. In the study, fifteen women were randomized to receive either CentellaAsiatica or a placebo. Treatment consisted of a topical cream that was applied to a 10 x 10 cm area of abdominal stretch marks on a nightly basis.
