Best Way to Treat Old Stretch Marks

Best Way to Treat Old Stretch Marks

Stretch marks. Most of us have them, some even dating back to our teenage years. (Hello, puberty!)

It’s easy to think ‘my skin is doomed’ when you consider making efforts to fade these oh-so-natural, but very much undesired marks.

Perhaps you’ve heard that stretch marks need to be treated as soon as they occur (wrong), or before they change too much (wrong again).

With the right solution – and commitment to that solution – you can fade your old stretch marks.

How, you wonder? It’s exceedingly beneficial to first learn how your stretch marks have changed over time, and then discover the best solution for significantly fading old stretch marks.

Let’s dive in:

What Causes Stretch Marks to Change Color?

Stretch marks first appear red, pink, purple, or brown depending on your skin tone. They typically occur in patches of parallel lines and may start out slightly raised or wrinkly.

Over time, the stretch marks will flatten out and fade to a white or silvery color.

Here’s what’s actually happening:

Your skin has three layers: the epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The epidermis is the outermost layer of skin that determines your skin tone. The dermis is the second layer of skin containing connective tissue, hair follicles and sweat glands. This is where stretch marks form. The hypodermis is the third layer of skin containing connective tissue and fat. This layer houses your blood vessels.

When the dermis tears, resulting in stretch marks, the blood vessels in the hypodermis below become more visible. That’s why stretch marks first appear red, pink, purple or brown.

As the dermis heals, repairing and replacing cells, the blood vessels below become less visible and your stretch marks turn white.

How Long Does It Take For Stretch Marks to Change Color?

It usually takes about 6 or more months for stretch marks to turn from red to white or silver.

Can You Get Rid of Old, White Stretch Marks?

New red stretch marks are typically more responsive to treatment than older, white stretch marks. That doesn’t mean; however, that you cannot fade old stretch marks just as you can new ones. It just means you may have to be more patient with the process.

What’s the Best Way to Treat Old Stretch Marks?

Here are a few tips to speed up the process of fading old stretch marks.

Stay active and maintain your weight. It’s easier to fade old stretch marks if your skin is not undergoing any new stresses like significant weight gain or weight loss.

Stay moisturized. Your skin sheds cells more rapidly than any other part of the body, and needs moisture to repair itself.*

Invest in a comprehensive stretch mark solution. While the beauty and skincare market is saturated with many types of stretch mark solutions, most are not created with effective ingredients, and many others are just glorified moisturizers. Typical stretch mark creams and oils are only meant to address marks on the outermost layers of skin. A comprehensive stretch mark solution supports the natural regeneration of collagen and elastin, resulting in thicker and less translucent skin, visibly reducing the appearance of stretch marks and scars. This is accomplished through means of exfoliation followed by application of cream with the right ingredients.
