 Hey if you want to weight loss then there is no only one way. We have to do this if we will focus on multtiple things at the same time. they are: eat well, eat right, exercise daily, do not take stress and if you are suffering from erectile dysfunction related issues then do not take generic viagra pills.

That sounds scary to me. I'd rather prevent stretch marks than do a potentialy risky treatment. What kind of exercises tighten skin?

Marie, I am with you on that one. Actually, I would love to find a doctor who performs carboxytherapy. I am not certain I would actually have it done, but I would like to learn more about the risks and benefits from a professional perspective. I have read that a number of people realize amazing results for their stretch marks. Yet, I also read that air embolism is a possibility (more likely in unskilled hands, I am sure). Outside of California, where are the doctors who perform this procedure?

I might have mentioned this in another post, but Carboxytherapy is a relatively new cosmetic procedure. It involves injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide gas just under the skin. What allegedly makes this an effective treatment for stretch marks is it increases blood circulation while simultaneously destroying fat deposits. Because blood circulation is increased, skin elasticity also improves. I would love to find a Boston-area doctor who does this procedure, if only for evaluation purposes. I hate needles and pain, so it seems kind of scary to me. However, I think I hate my stretch marks even more.

Hmmm- we're talking about stretchmarks- or most of us are. What are you talking about besides empty platitudes?? What you said could equally apply to anxiety or weight loss or excessive video game playing, etc.. seems like it has nothing to do with stretchmarks and everything to do w/ link-promoting your product. If it works for stretchmarks, fine- share some data. Otherwise, maybe this isn't the right forum for you... Just saying...

Thank you for the feedback, Amari, although I wish my legs had grown longer (LOL). Anyway, the stretch marks settled right around the thigh area. They bothered me a lot more when I was younger. Nonetheless, I would still like to get rid of them. I have been reading about ablative and non-ablative lasers for so many different types of conditions (e.g., wrinkles, acne scarring, sagging, hyperpigmentation). I wonder if there is a laser that specifically targets stretch marks. If so, has anyone had a treatment?

Cher: When did they appear? Was it during puberty? If so, you probably had a growth spurt in which your legs grew too quickly for your skin (in length rather than width).

I am thin, and I have always been thin, but somehow I got stretch marks on my thighs. The only logical explanation I can think of for their development is that I have a genetic predisposition to spot weight in that area (both of my sisters also have the dreaded saddlebags). Still, I purposely stay thin so this problem is manageable. If my thigh width has not fluctuated at any discernible level, though, why did the stretch marks form?

OK, this is really a small potential problem with stretchmarks compared to the much more serious injuries talked about here: lovehandles- which I'm working hard to lose. I've lost 3% of my body weight already- but am I at risk of replacing them with stretchmarks instead?

Grace: Stretchmarks are purely aesthetic, but being overweight can cause type 2 diabetes, heart attack, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, sleep problems, pregnancy complications, and other health issues.

I think it depends on how much pounds you get lost. Obviously, gradually weight loss will be much better to avoid the stretch marks, however, if you want to loss 30 pds. You have to be prepare for the stretch marks before you do it. Like cvwarner said, moisturize skin frequently.

Great advice! To add a personal note, in my own weight loss program over the past year I established a regular exercise routine in addition to dieting. Therefore, as I gradually lost weight, I avoided stretch marks since exercising helped tighten any loose skin, keeping up with my weight loss. Frequent exercise also speeds the weight loss process and contributes to overall health. Here are a few other helpful tips for stretch marks prevention: - Moisturize skin with creams and lotions such as cocoa butter and nutrients such as vitamin E - Massage skin to increase circulation of blood and nutrients, promoting healthy skin - Immediately treat stretch marks upon appearance with scar treatment creams

Stretch marks often occur during rapid weight loss because of the rapid loss of fat. Prior to your weight loss, the fat was suspending and supporting your skin. Once the fat is gone, gravity presses down on you and your skin collapses without the fatty framework, causing tears in the layers of skin and then stretch marks. The result of this rapid weight loss may leave you embarrassed of your new body, and this could lead to rapid weight gain and therefore even more stretch marks. Stick to healthy diet plans to start with, and follow a few tips to avoid stretch marks. Remember to eat a healthy balanced diet, and be sure to exercise to tighten loose skin, and stay hydrated.
