STRETCH MARKS! :(!

6 posts in this topic

Well, I would probably recommend slowing down /working out less if you want new stretch marks to stop coming. The faster that you get bigger, the more stretch marks you will get. Basically your muscles are growing at a quicker pace than your skin is - thus the stretch marks coming in. I'm sorry to say that there really is no magical cure for stretch marks. Within time they won't be as noticeable, but once that skin is stretched there's really nothing you can do. A dermatologist may prescribe a cream like Retin-A to fade the color into a whiteish - silver lining that will blend the marks more easily into your skin, but there will still be that uneven texture. Chemical peels can help some, and maybe even dermarolling, but dermatologists still haven't found a great way to get rid of them besides surgery which can leave a scar behind. On a more positive note, you're probably the only one who notices the marks. I think other girls are paying more attention to the muscles, ha.
