The Doctors discuss how 80 percent of women develop stretch marks during pregnancy, but before you try to treat these marks, find out which methods can go painfully wrong and which can be effective and less painful.
They share the case of a woman who was treated with a fibroblast pen, which uses nitrogen gas to create an ionized spark of energy and burns the skin. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra says this device can generate a great deal of heat, and the woman who had this treatment at an aesthetician's office suffered 2nd and 3rd-degree burns. She notes these devices are not currently regulated in America and in Canada, they are banned.
So what is the best way to deal with stretch marks?
The Doctors note stretch marks are linked to genetics and also how quickly the pregnancy weight is gained, and a quicker weight gain can lead to more stretch marks. To treat the marks, they suggest using alpha-hydroxy acids, retinoids, and various laser treatments.
As always, only seek treatment from a trained professional.
