If you’ve ever been pregnant, or have experienced a rapid growth spurt or weight gain, then you have no doubt experienced those unwanted, conspicuous red scars that fade to silvery white lines—- stretch marks. Many individuals have experienced these unwanted scars, making it easy for a wide range of manufacturers to capitalize on our desire to eliminate stretch marks by selling lotions and creams that may cost a pretty penny, but ultimately do little to improve skin appearance.

It is difficult to evaluate whether an over-the-counter stretch-mark reducing lotion will work for you, because these products so often work more effectively on some, and less effectively on others. Many reviewers have mixed opinions about over-the-counter products like Palmer’s Cocoa Butter, or Tummy Butter. While some users insist that one or both of the products worked for them, other lamented that they had tried these creams and other topical ointments, but nothing even slightly diminished the appearance of their stretch marks. While it is a good idea to investigate testimonials and user reviews before purchasing a product, especially when scar-reducing lotions can run anywhere from $13-99/bottle, every person’s skin is different—so what works for others may not be such a great product for you, and vice versa. To gain a better understanding of your skin type and which stretch-mark reducing options would be most effective for you, it is always a great idea to consult with a reputable dermatologist.

Many women and men are not aware a wide range of effective methods to reduce the appearance of stretch marks are available through a skin care professional. These include laser treatments, prescription ointments, and microdermabrasion. If you are interested in improving the appearance of your skin, a local stretch mark removal specialist will be able to thoroughly explain each method, and help you decide which option is best for you. You will be able to rest assured that your skin is in good hands, and that your skin care professional will provide you with the treatment best suited to your skin type and medical history.
