Fading stretch marks: Tip of the Day 7-21-22

Stretch marks are a type of scarring that happens when skin stretches or shrinks quickly. Dermatologists say there are some do’s and don’ts when trying to make stretch marks less noticeable.

Experts say, while tanning can make stretch marks more noticeable, a self-tanner can camouflage stretch marks — both early and mature ones. A self-tanner cannot get of rid of stretch marks.

Stretch marks are typically permanent, however, Dermatologists use the following procedures to make stretch marks less noticeable:

  • Chemical peel

  • Laser therapy

  • Microdermabrasion

  • Radiofrequency

  • Ultrasound

To give you the best results, your dermatologist may use more than one procedure. For example, your dermatologist may treat you with radiofrequency and a pulse dye laser. Talk to your dermatologist if your stretch marks are bothersome to you.
