Stretch marks on tummy post pregnancy. How can I get rid of them? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you?
Doctor, i have got, scratch marks on my tummy after my pregnancy, what is the way to remove it other than plastic surgery...
My baby is 8 yrs old now...
This occurs as a result of tissue damage and scaring.
but there has to be some way to remove it, ????
While in many they fade away and disappear in 12 to 18 months in time, they can persist in a few.
It looks like you have a permanent one.
In early stages, they can be treated with steroid preparations, however
since it is already crossed 8 years,
I cannot guarantee effective treatment with medications.
though my skin tone is fair & so, the visibility is very less, but still i can feel that, which i really hate...
if you have not tried products like mederma, clearz or other hydroquinone containing products
you may try them for a while.
They can be helpful in some cases.
so, which one is most effective & which can help fast...
also i have extra fats on my tummy area, how can i reduce that ???
You may use it.
However if this cream doesn't bring about any changes in the next 6-8 months, then it should be discontinued.
If there is no improvement with 6-8 months of application, then I think you need to stitch on to other form of treatment which includes dermabrasion or laser correction.
*if these stretch marks are embarrassing you.
Are you following?
Regarding extra fat, may I know your current weight and height?
what is this treatment exactly ??
My height is 5.4" & weight is 56kg
Do you mean treatment of extra fat or other form of treatment which I mentioned for stretch marks?
for stretch marks...
Here the affected skin is rubbed against a rough surface so as to cause deep exfoliation.
This results in removal of the top hyperpigmented cells along with melanocytes revealing the below cells with less melanocytes.
A few repeated trial will gradually help in establishing a clearer less hyperpigmented skin.
Is laser treatment effective, as currently im going to a skin care centre, where they are giving this laser treatments....
though im taking that laser treamtment, but taking a tummy tucks sessions...
Reducing the number of melanocytes reduces the melanin secretions and thus reduced pigmentation.
Before taking up laser treatment - either for tummy tuck or hyperpigmentation, you need to understand
that this is a cosmetic correction.
Though almost all the time the results of the procedure is positive
there can be some side effects too which can produce negative results which inturn may need repeat procedure.
You need to discuss about these aspects with your treating doctor before you decide upon taking laser treatment.
