Stretch Marks During Pregnancy

Stretchmarks and pregnancy scars are forms of scarring especially on the abdomen, with an off-white or red color appearance. This kind of scarring is medically referred to as striae generally found in most men and women, because of rapid weight gain and rapid weight losing during pregnancy, usually for the first few weeks. From the first time you get your ultrasound scan, you start gaining weight. If this is fast, it can lead to stretch marks.

While these marks fade gradually over time, there are also creams that claim to speed up their disappearance or reduce their size. The fact of the matter is that these scars will definitely not go away without some form of treatment. However, there are treatments available which will help you minimize the appearance of your stretchmarks and pregnancy scars.

In terms of pregnancy scars, prevention should always be your main focus. Avoid wearing tight fitting clothing and undergarments. Remember that while it is important to keep fit, this should not mean sacrificing your comfort and personal hygiene. It would also help to wash your body and apply a good moisturizing cream to prevent your skin from drying out in the heat of the summer. Moisturizing the skin before taking a bath is an ideal idea.

You may want to ask your doctor about some creams that may help minimize the appearance of your pregnancy stretch marks and pregnancy scars. There are some natural creams which can help speed up the fading process of these stretch marks. Some creams claim to treat scars and stretch marks but most of them contain harmful chemicals that can only harm you more. The creams which are made from natural ingredients contain vitamins and minerals that your body needs to have an overall healthy skin. Most importantly, these creams do not contain harsh chemicals which can cause damage to the skin.

One of the most popular treatments for these kinds of pregnancy scars is the use of skin dermis rejuvenation. This method involves using certain ingredients which are all-natural and can help improve the elasticity of your skin. There are also certain ingredients which are said to provide stimulation to the collagen production in your dermis layer. Collagen is responsible for providing elasticity to your skin so when it is increased it can help smooth the appearance of the scars. These ingredients are grape seed oil, CynergyTK, Phytessence Wakame, Nanobelle Coenzyme Q10, and natural vitamin E.

The reason why your pregnancy scars appear in the first place has a lot to do with the hormonal changes in your body. If you can minimize the appearance of these scars then it is much easier for you to get rid of them. If you are suffering from stretch marks then you will probably notice a huge improvement after a few months. Rapid growth is another reason why your pregnancy scars appear prematurely. If your skin suffers from rapid growth then it will be much harder for it to recover than if it is not suffering from rapid growth.

In addition to the reasons stated above, some women suffer from stretchmarks at the time of their pregnancy. The only way to make sure that you don’t develop these stretchmarks is by performing a good skin care routine. Skincare is an important aspect of every healthy lifestyle but the treatment of pregnancy scars should be given extra attention because the long-term effects of using skin care products like lotions can be devastating. Although there are several creams available in the market that claim to be effective for pregnancy scars, only a few are really effective. To ensure that you don’t develop any stretch mark or scars in the future, always use creams that contain natural ingredients like aloe Vera, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C.
