Stretch Mark Removal for New Moms

By Annabelle Roylance
Stretch mark removal is a common concern for new moms. According to WebMd, up to 90% of all women have them and they can be stubborn.
“Once they have passed the initial stage, when they are red or purple, to the later stages, where they become white or silver — often with deep indentations — they are much more challenging to treat.”

It’s important to treat the marks right away with stretch mark cream or, for severe cases, with laser treatment.

Though most women agree on the magic of pregnancy, few women celebrate its cosmetic effect. Bloating, weight gain, and varicose veins often accompany pregnancy. And new moms often struggle with sagging skin, hair loss, and other maladies. But the most common question from new moms is how to remove stretch marks. They may appear on the stomach, hips, breasts and buttocks – the areas of the body with the most fat cells .

Known by doctors as striae gravidarum, stretch marks typically appear after rapid weight gain or loss – they are most common during pregnancy. A pregnant woman’s stomach swells to accommodate a growing baby and the skin stretches too. If this happens too fast, the skin tissue structures pull apart, damaging collagen and leaving red, purple or pink scars.

It’s not easy to prevent stretch marks, but there are effective removal treatments. You won’t need surgery if you’re satisfied with significant improvement, not a 100% cure – which usually requires laser treatments or other more invasive and expensive treatments. The least invasive approach is to use the best stretch mark creams. One of the more popular creams is TriLastin SR.
TriLASTIN SR Before and After

One review on the TriLastin SR website really struck me:
“ I just recently had a baby girl in November. I used all kinds of lotions during my pregnancy and thought they were working until the week befor i delivered. Stretch marks came out of nowhere. I got them on my calves, thighs, hips, rear, stomach and chest! I was devastated! I thought I would forever have to hide my body, and at the age of 22 let me tell you, that was very upsetting. Then I was looking online and came across this page…the pictures were so believable that I thought with money back guarantee how can you go wrong. So I ordered 2 bottles. I keep one at home and one in my purse and am using it 2-3 times daily. I started using TriLASTIN on January 4th and it is now January 20th. That is only 2 weeks and the results are obvious!

I am thrilled to death with this product and I have recommended it to all my family and friends who also struggle with stretch marks! Im excited to see how much better they can still get,beings that I have only been using it a short period of time I still expect more great results! I am also looking forward to being able to wear a bikini this summer vacation. THANK YOU TRILASTIN… This stuff REALLY WORKS!”

If you don’t feel that a stretch mark cream will provide the results you’re looking for, another option is laser treatment. A cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist uses laser light to burn away the scarred skin to encourage new skin growth. This process reduces the appearance of stretch marks, but can cost $1,000 or more per treatment and generally requires several treatments.

Unless the stretch marks are severe, a stretch mark cream like TriLastin SR is a better option.
