How To Get Rid Of Pregnancy Stretch Marks

New and expecting moms tend to ask a lot of questions about how to care for their newborns and what they should do to keep their baby safe during and after pregnancy. With all the responsibilities of being a new mom, stretch marks due to pregnancy are probably not your patients’ biggest concern. We firmly believe that everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin, stretch marks and all, but some women will have the perfectly normal desire to get rid of their stretch marks once they have the time. Luckily, there are products that can help.

What Are Stretch Marks & Where Do Stretch Marks Come From?

Stretch marks typically occur as parallel bands of discoloration on skin. They look different from surrounding skin in both color and texture, and can sometimes cause discomfort or itchiness. While stretch marks are commonly associated with pregnancy, the truth is that anyone can get them. Changes in weight and height can cause stretch marks, as can adrenal gland problems. They can occur in all genders, races, and ages. Although, they are most common in Caucasian women. Heredity is often a factor as well.

The skin consists of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. The dermis is the middle layer. It is the thick layer of skin that contains capillaries, nerve endings, hair follicles, sweat glands etc. If the dermis stretches due to weight fluctuation, and if there is an increase in cortisone in your system, then you may begin to notice stretch marks. Cortisone is a hormone produced by adrenal glands, and it can cause skin to lose its elasticity. That is why some adrenal conditions can contribute to the growth of stretch marks.

How Can People Get Rid Of Stretch Marks?

There are plenty of stretch mark creams on the market, but looking for the right ingredients is key to suggesting the best stretch mark cream for your patient. Rejuvaskin Stretch Mark Cream has cocoa butter, Ceramide-2, Aloe Leaf, and shea butter. These ingredients hydrate and soothe the skin to help prepare it for growth. Another key ingredient in Resolve is Palmitoyl Hexapeptide-12. This key component helps increase skin strength and elasticity. 

Another great feature of this stretch mark cream is that it is completely paraben-free, so it is safe to use after the first trimester of pregnancy. Using the cream early on will help condition the skin and prevent stretch marks before they even become an issue. It is great for expecting mothers.

In order to get the best effects from stretch mark treatment, advise expectant mothers to apply creams regularly. It can help to incorporate them into a daily regimen, so that they do not forget to apply. Using the cream 2-3 times daily is the best way to improve or reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
