Is it possible to get rid of stretch marks? If you have stretch marks, or you’re concerned about having them in the future this is likely a question that has gone through your mind at one point or another. There are so many different products, treatments and techniques out there that claim to be able to get rid of them… but do they really work? We recently saw the beauty queen herself, Kim Kardashian, Snapchatting about getting her stretch marks removed and it sparked our interest to dive a bit deeper on this topic since we know you’re curious, too!
It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian is one of the queens of the beauty world. Between her and her famous sisters, they’re always sharing the latest and greatest beauty treatments and products that they have access to. Since so many women struggle and feel self-conscious about stretch marks we were intrigued when we saw Mrs. West sharing that SHE was having treatment for stretch marks. Of course many of us probably felt – she actually has stretch marks? But once over the initial shock, we were interested in what treatment she was actually talking about. Evidently, she opted for a laser treatment that’s being used with removing stretch marks. It’s a newer treatment that’s said to help with removing stretch marks through something called a “CoolBeam” laser – it’s not cheap, as many reports claim that this procedure will run between $3,000-5,000 per area you decide/need treatment on. However, many say that the treatment really does with getting rid of stretch marks.
Additional treatments that claim to help get rid of stretch marks range massage therapy to dermal rollers to the ever talked about creams. According to our research and much of the information that we found, it seems that the overall consensus with experts suggest that many of the treatments like lasers, and prescription strength products that contain Retin-A as an active ingredient have been found to help get rid of stretch marks. However, many of the other common stretch mark suggestions that are floating around the beauty world are said to not hold a lot of real improvement.
Not sure what we mean by the other suggestions? You’ve probably heard about the creams, dermal rollers and massage therapy to help prevent and minimize the appearance of stretch marks. While they sound great and all, many of the experts have said that after really going through the processes in the way suggested there wasn’t a lot of visible improvement found in getting rid of stretch marks. So the verdict? It is possible to get rid of stretch marks or at least reduce the appearance of them with the right type of treatment/products. It really seems to be about making sure that you’re going to the right doctors and getting the right types of treatment/product to work with your skin and budget. It’s good to know that there are options, and we’re willing to bet that many experts are working on some other improvements to be released in the future.
