Dr Oz: What Causes Stretch Marks?
Dr Oz said that Pregnancy, Weight Gain, and Growth Spurts can be the three most common causes of Stretch Marks. He said they start beneath the skin before coming up to the surface.
Typically, the skin is flexible, but over time, these culprits can make damaging changes to the skin. Redness that may appear is a sign of the body attempting to heal itself. But swelling can work against that.
Dr Oz: Vitamin C Lotion for Stretch Marks
You might be pleasantly surprised that you can address your stretch marks even if you have had them for years. Dr Oz’s first solution is Vitamin C Lotion, which can boost collagen to help keep the skin strong and taut. Apply the lotion in the morning and at night.
Dr Oz: Tretinoin Cream Vs Retinol
For earlier stretch marks that are darker in color, ask about prescription Tretinoin Cream containing Vitamin A, or try Retinol, an over the counter option that can be more affordable.
Dr Oz: Microdermabrasion for Stretch Marks
Microdermabrasion is another method that can be used to treat unsightly stretch marks. The method, which was demonstrated on a patient, blasted away surface cells to encourage the skin to grow and repair itself. You would need a minimum of three treatments, which could cost $150 per session.
