How do you get rid of stretch marks?

* What you need is natural products that will repair and exfoliate your skin.

The skin has 7 layers (3 main layers, 4 sub-layers) and what you need is something that can repair your skin from the bottom up. Not over-the-counter products that contain damaging chemicals and mineral oil (a byproduct of making gasoline, which is very bad).

Stretch marks are actually just be damaged skin. Most of the time people use the products I mentioned above; however, that will not help. The skin needs to be repaired in a natural way, not forced (which is what chemicals do). You need natural products -- and not only that, but the right formulation. Also, it needs to be trans-dermal (having the ability to penetrate) to repair from the bottom up.

Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body, along the side of your stomach, the bottom of your belly, the upper portion of your chest, the center of your thighs, and circumference of your posterior. Generally, stretch marks appear in places where larger amounts of fat are stored. Although, stretch marks are associated with people who tend to be over eaters and obese, stretch marks can be the result of a variety of things. Pregnancy, bodybuilding, weight loss, puberty, and intense physical activity can lead to stretch marks.

Can stretch marks be removed by laser surgery or by using special creams?

== == * Laser surgery works best on stretch marks that are new and still red or purple. Laser surgery for stretch marks is very expensive - you need multiple treatments at $400 - $1,500 per treatment. Stretch mark cream, on the other hand, has been clinically proven to work and is much cheaper! Can stretch marks be removed without surgery? No. There are many over the counter creams available for the reduction of the appearance of stretch marks. These creams reduce the swelling of new marks and the redness of new and old ones. Surgery is available, and very pricey, and probably not worth the cost since I don't think insurance would cover it. Talk to a Pharmacist for a good over the counter cream. This should work in time. If you don't see the results that you are looking for, don't worry, they WILL reduce on their own. Eventually they will turn skin color and skin texture, and they can be tanned too. * Sorry to say this but they can't be tanned. They will always be a different colour from the rest of your skin. Try massaging in circular motions with lotion that has vitamin E in it. At least once a day or every 2 days and see what happens ... ;-)

* While stretch mark creams might not be that effective on their own, I've heard that using these creams in combination with microdermabrasion treatment can help. See, there are two types of stretch mark creams; one type has collagen in it which your body needs to fix the stretch marks. The other type of cream has collagen inducing ingredients which cause your body to produce it's own collagen. The problem with both of these creams however, is that in order for the collagen to be effective it has to get to the deeper layers of skin. Rubbing a cream on the surface of the skin doesn't do this. So, if you do microdermabrsion on your stretch marks first, that takes off the top layer of your skin. Then if you apply the stretch mark cream after, the ingredients have a better chance of getting to the deeper layers of skin where they can be effective. * Revitagen stretch mark cream uses peptides to to penetrate the skin and heal the collagen matrix. Revitagen also has Siegesbeckia orientalis, which has been used for centuries to heal wounds. (Stretch marks are tears in the collagen matrix.) Using coco butter for pregnancy takes aways your stretch marks but you have to use it every day.

Stretch marks can be removed by laser surgery as well as with by using special creams, it all depends how much you want to spend. Laser surgery is a costly treatment and it may also include some side effects with it but special creams like Skin Doctors Stretch Away Stretch Mark Cream can help you to remove stretch mark without any side effect and with in economical budget too. Skin Doctors Stretch Away Stretch Mark Cream is a unique combination containing naturally based ingredients, that helps to visibly reduce the appearance of stretch marks, and to prevent new ones appearing.

Is it normal if you have a tattoo done with charcoal and a pin and a couple weeks later the area starts to look something like stretch marks?

This is a very risky way of doing a tattoo. It is obviously already too late for the "go to a professional" lecture.

Keep an eye on the skin around the tattoo; pain, inflammation, redness, swelling should be closely monitored, and if worsening occurs, you need to see a doctor- don't be ashamed, they've seen everything.

It sounds like you have begun to develop one of two things;

1) Keloid scarring. This scarring occurs most commonly when you have been tattooed too deeply. The result is a raised scar that is very hard to get rid of. To minimize scarring, rub unscented lotion containing vitamin E into the skin. Aloe helps soothe the skin, while vitamin E will reduce scarring. After the tattoo has healed, Bio Oil helps decrease discolouration associated with Keloids, but will not reduce the raised feeling of them much.

2) BLOOD POISONING- these lines could signify blood poisoning, from unclean materials and processes. See a doctor immediately- you could have a potentially fatal infection.
