Removing Stretch Marks
At 50 something, I am still struggling with removing stretch marks gained during child bearing days.
You might also be in this with me. So a friend to another, let's try Stuart and see whether his ideas work for us. So far I can say I have seen progress on my belly marks by using some tissue repair creams and Bio oil.
Come back here often and let us exchange notes and ideas.
Now off to Stuart.

Stretch marks, which are a kind of skin scarring, lead to formation of temporary or permanent marks on the skin, and are primarily caused due to stretching of skin for a prolonged period. Pregnant women are mostly affected with these, however it can also be caused due to obesity, temporary weight gain, muscular building of the body and during clinical operations. But there is nothing to worry about, as a number of stretch mark removal methods are available today and you can choose any one of them, as suggested by your doctor.
Some cosmetic medications are specially designed for stretch mark removal, and contain substances which increase the elasticity. These medication methods are best suitable for those people who will be indulging in activities that can lead to temporary elongation, such as pregnancy and body building. As the elasticity of skin increases, so it regains its shape once the applicable force is withdrawn.
For people who have not used such conceptual creams, the most common stretch mark removal methods include application of laser and surgery. Laser beam is a highly powerful light source, and is used in burning the temporal stretched zones, and the new grown skin is as smooth as original one. This may cause swelling or other side effects and is also a bit costly, so practically beyond
the reach of a large group of people.
On the other hand, surgical removal also involves the same procedure as the laser beam, but require a lengthier recovery time as compared to laser method. Some alternatives are also available such as blue light therapy, microdermabrasion and chemical peelers. They are comparatively cheaper than the surgical or laser treatment, however the removal is not quite applauding.
Remember, before opting for any one of the stretch mark removal methods, you should have a clear idea of the procedure requirements, their cost and time period.
