Stretch Marks and Topical Cream

See More: Skincare

Question: I am an 18-yr-old female and had read that there is no treatment for stretch marks. I also heard that using tanning cream can help. I just want to know does it work and does it discolor your skin for good?

First the bad news. There is no treatment to erase or remove stretch marks. All the hype that you see on TV and hear on the radio is a lie, unfortunately, so don't waste your money. Now the good news. Although erasing the marks is not possible, you can camouflage them with a self-tanning lotion. I usually recommend an inexpensive store brand. Mix 6-8 marble sized amounts of the lotion with a quart of your favorite body lotion. Use over a few days to a week. It wears off if you do not keep applying it. Ultimately, surgery can remove some of the marks after you complete your family. Call us at 351-5050 if you are interested in the surgical option. Our patient coordinator can give you information on the surgery and price estimates as well as financing options. Lawrence E. Ruf, M.D.
