Are you looking for a proven method to remove stretch marks? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place!


Stretch marks are something that people of all backgrounds deal with. Some struggle in certain areas, whereas other people have them all over.


If you want to know how to get rid of stretch marks, keep reading for 3 proven methods.


1. Topical Retinoid Application


Retinoid has long been known as an almost surefire way for getting rid of stretch marks. Retinoid is also known as Vitamin A, which is the vitamin that makes skin appear smoother and softer. One of the major components of well-known beauty creams is retinoid.


Retinoids can either be ingested or applied topically. Ingested, it might take a while to see results. Alongside that, your body typically disperses the vitamin unevenly, so you can’t exactly ‘spot reduce.’


However, you can still take retinoid supplements or eat foods high in vitamin A to make your skin even more flawless.


Our recommendation here is to use topical retinoid creams. They target the area specifically and get to work in just a few applications.


2. Microdermabrasion


This method is a type of exfoliation, much how some topical creams are but dig deeper than the skin’s top layer.


This type of exfoliation involves tiny little crystals (or sometimes needles) that shred off the skin. This removes only the top layer of the skin to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.


One thing to note is that this is typically not covered by insurance and can be a little pricey. However, it has a proven success rate.


When combined with other at-home remedies, microdermabrasion can reduce the overall appearance of stretch marks.



3. Radio Frequency Body Contouring


Arguably the most popular quick fix to stretch marks. Now, there’s understandably a ton of controversy around different methods that different doctors practice.


However, know that RF Body Contouring (when done properly) is completely safe and quite effective.


Before making a choice, seek a registered skin specialist to see what treatment is best for you.
