Problem: I have stretch marks on my tummy. I want to get rid of them and avoid getting them again in the future.
Solution: Stretch marks occur due to loose collagen and snapping of elastin (a band responsible for tautness). Certain laser treatments can help tighten collagen thereby stretching the skin and giving it evenness, though complete disappearance is uncommon. Using creams with vitamin C and Vitamin K also helps rejuvenate skin. When stretch marks are new and reddish, products with retionls may help.
