I have been dealing with Stretch marks from a year now, and I have used almost everything except surgery, Now the summers are coming back but I still can't wear short dresses and bikinis, as it will not bring fun but embarrassment. Stretch marks causing me a lot stress, can anyone please tell me a complete treatment for stretch marks..

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community for real help getting rid of stretch marks. I think, all of us of a certain age, have dealt with this issue.

Stretch marks happen when your body grows faster than your skin can keep up with. This causes the elastic fibers just under the surface of the skin to break, resulting in stretch marks.

Anonymous, have you tried a retinoid treatment? It speeds up cell turnover and can stimulate new collagen growth, leading to plumper, healthier skin.

Have to tried a laser treatment? Lasers that heat the skin boosts collagen growth and shrinks dilated blood vessels.

Dermabrasion can help renew skin and minimize stretch marks.

Good luck,
