Most pregnant women have to put up with stretch marks during and after their pregnancy. Stretch marks are caused when the skin is stretched but it does not have time to develop properly. This can lead to purple bumpy skin appearing, and it can look quite unpleasant.

The good news is the older your stretch marks get, the lighter their colour will be. The purple will slowly turn to red, then pink and the marks will eventually become almost silver-like. This means they will be easier to hide, but can you get rid of them for once and for all?

Some ACLS PALS, and BLS trained physicians can care for your skin. You want to have a doctor that has been trained in ACLS, PALS, and BLS in case you have an allergic response to any proscribed medication. While online ACLS, PALS, and BLS certification is not used in the actual administration of treatment it is important your doctor is always prepared for emergencies.

Boost your self-confidence

The fact of the matter is that you can get rid of stretch marks to a degree. You may not be able to say ‘Goodbye’ to them completely, but you can make a huge difference to their appearance and your self-confidence too.

Just so you know, women aren’t the only people to suffer from stretch marks, men can too. Men who have recently put on a lot of weight are likely to have stretch marks, as are teenagers who have put on a growth spurt. Stretch marks are entirely normal, but they can be embarrassing and leave you conscious of the clothes you’re wearing.

So how can you get rid of stretch marks?

Here’s how:

  • Make sure you moisturize with cream that contains Vitamin E. This vitamin is great at helping your skin to repair itself and although it will not work magic, it can help. Cocoa butter is also recommended for stretch marks too. If you’re planning to get pregnant, then you might want to moisturize the areas of your body that are typically affected by stretch marks (Stomach, breasts, and thighs).
  • Derma rollers are ideal at helping you to eliminate stretch marks. They contain minute pin heads that prick your skin as you move the roller over your stretch marks. These pin pricks will then start to heal as normal and you could effectively remove your stretch marks, but it will take time.
  • Laser surgery can work, but it’s an expensive and often painful option. Great results cannot be guaranteed no matter how much you pay as it depends on how old your stretch marks are, and the rate at which you recover.
  • Tattoos seem to be a great way for you to cover up your stretch marks, but they can have limited results. You need to make sure you find a good tattooist who is happy to work on your stretch marks and give you a tattoo you’ll love.
