Summer is in full blast and what we least want this beach and pool season is to have stretch marks. Dr. Maribel Pedrozo, "the Alchemist of Beauty" shares tips to look radiant in a swimsuit and say goodbye to these marks on the skin. "Almost no one can escape these skin atrophies in the form of sinuous lines of pink, slightly violet, whitish or pearly colors called striae," admits the owner of Biobell Oriental MedSpa in Miami, who has celebrities like Adamari López, Bárbara Bermudo and Maritza Rodríguez among her clients.
Stretch marks are common after pregnancy or after a person loses a considerable amount of weight. When the skin is stretched, these marks are created. The most frequent locations are hips, glutes, legs, belly, thighs, arms, back and breasts. We can say that they are tissue scars,”adds Pedrozo.
Although they are very common, there are tricks you can use to hide or completely remove stretch marks. "Exfoliate the skin of your body daily and thus remove dead skin so that the skin regenerates and stretch marks are removed," advises the Colombian expert.
Another essential factor is staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating foods rich in minerals and vitamins E and C. "They should massage the areas where they have more stretch marks -or where they usually appear- twice a day with stretch mark creams or natural essential oils such as olive, almond, marigold, Argan, or rosehip, among others, "recommends Pedrozo.
Smearing tretinoin cream or Retinol every night is also beneficial. There are several treatments that you can receive in aesthetic medical centers, medical spas or dermatology offices. Of course, Pedrozo advises that you consult an expert.
Laser, peeling, dermaroller, mesotherapy, PRP, microdermabration and radiofrequency are some of the treatments on the market. They can be done in combination for a better result since they stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, being the laser one of the most effective and expensive treatments”, he concludes. Don't let stretch marks take your sleep away and make a plan of action!
