The Best Stretch Mark Creams to Use When You're Pregnant
Unfortunately, getting rid of pesky stretch marks -- whether from pregnancy or fluctuations in weight -- is no easy feat. Here are the best stretch mark creams on the market, as well as tips on how to use them correctly so you achieve real results
Post-pregnancy: in-office treatmentsIf you have older stretch marks -- or if all the stretch mark creams you've tried have done squat -- there are three different in-office options Frank recommends to get rid of stretch marks:
The Fraxel Dual Laser: This option is for younger people with newer stretch marks. You'll see results in four to five treatments.
The V-Beam Laser: If you want to get started right away, this laser is safe even while you're breastfeeding, and it even works well on C-section scars.
The Dermapen: Frank calls this "a hot new technology" and describes the procedure as little needles poked into the skin to traumatize it into producing new collagen. He suggests it for patients with darker skin who may not be good candidates for a laser.
