Stretch marks?

Postby mountain » Mon, 29 Sep 2008 7:30 am

Hi,

What is the best treatment to prevent
and get rid of stretch marks?

What do you use during pregnancy to prevent stretchmarks?

Any cream??

Thank you very much:)

i used clarins body treatment oil for both my pregnancies and loved it. i didn't have any stretch marks with either one - but i'm not sure if that is just hereditary or not...

Palmers cocoa butter OR Clarins Tonic body treatment oil.

it would be good to get some sample to try out, just in case you may develop skin sensitivity.

I used Palmer cocoa butter from my 1st trimester till the last and it didnt work for me. Now I've got lots of strechmarks and they are horrible. I've tried Stricvectin but I think mine are just too big.

Anyone knows of any laser treatments for it? Or can recommend a good skin specialist? I'd like to wear my bikinis again with confidence :-)

My sister is using Srivectin for her stretch marks. She's contempating
laser treatment too. However they told her that laser treatment
doesn't work 100%...maybe around 60% improvement.

If anybody else knows how to treat them please let me know

Thanks:)

you can try sweet almond oil (you can find it in most health/organic shops but you can also find it in Takashinaya). almond oil is superb for your skin and for the PREVENTION of the strech marks..however if you already have strech marks than perhaps it is better to go for something else.

60% is better than nothing I suppose. Which laser treatment is this and at which clinic? Thanks.

i used palmers, cocoa butter, olive oil and forever products before but all not works. think it only reduce.

it you hv stretch mark after birth you can consider tummy tuck which could get rid all of yr stretch mark

Maybe u can try Slim Fit for strech mark treatments..It sure cost a bomb but it sure worth it after few sessions with them...They charge u by how serious your conditions really is for your whole body and not just by section by section on parts of your body..

Bio oil (I am not sure where you can get this in Singapore) is really good as a preventative measure and I have heard really good things about Strivectin (which you can get from GNC I think).
