How to get rid of stretch marks?
Some recent weight loss has left me with a lot of very ugly stretch marks. What is the most effective product out there to diminish the appearance of stretch marks? Thanks in advance.
There are several stretch mark remedies that Sephora offers. The most popular (and I believe the most effective) stretch mark cream is StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles & Stretch Marks. This intensive treatment-plus-hydration complex, featuring 8% NIA-114 + Peptide Actives™, is the ultimate deep-wrinkle and stretch-mark fighter. This blend is even more powerful than the original StriVectin-SD™, with four-times more peptides and patented NIA-114™ technology. It is clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks in 2 to 8 weeks:
- Week 2: Natural collagen resurges; texture and resilience improve.
- Week 4: Natural cell turnover intensifies; discolorations fade visibly.
- Week 8: Reinforces elasticity; visibly diminishes wrinkles and stretch marks.
