Stretch marks or, in oth­er words, stri­ae, are scars locat­ed on the inner skin lay­ers, translu­cent through the thinned top lay­er. Such marks are unpleas­ant, but it is almost impos­si­ble to avoid them. Of course, there are rare cas­es of pos­i­tive hered­i­ty — so if your moth­er endured you with­out stretch marks, then most like­ly this prob­lem will not affect you either.

Almost any woman dur­ing preg­nan­cy asks the ques­tion “how can stretch marks be pre­vent­ed?” Because in this peri­od there is a rapid weight gain and inelas­tic inner skin fibers sim­ply tear. Hor­mon­al changes can also lead to such gaps, as well as a gen­er­al increase in the sen­si­tiv­i­ty of the body (includ­ing the skin) to exter­nal influ­ences.

Expec­tant moth­ers know many ways to pre­vent the appear­ance of stretch marks, and here there are both folk and med­ica­tions. No method can give a full guar­an­tee, but it is quite pos­si­ble to reduce the amount or sever­i­ty. First­ly, it is advis­able to wear spe­cial sup­port­ive under­wear dur­ing preg­nan­cy — and you will need not only a tum­my tuck, but also an appro­pri­ate bra. Under­wear should sup­port, not squeeze, so it must be care­ful­ly select­ed accord­ing to your size and ges­ta­tion­al age. As a pre­ven­tive mea­sure, a con­trast or cool show­er is also suit­able — while tak­ing a show­er, per­form a cir­cu­lar mas­sage. You should not over­do it, because oth­er­wise you risk get­ting hypother­mia.

A soft­en­ing and elas­tic effect can be obtained as a result of super­fi­cial peel­ing of the skin on the abdomen and chest. You will need gloves and appro­pri­ate exfo­li­at­ing prod­ucts. To pre­vent stretch marks, you can also reg­u­lar­ly use creams with elas­tane — this will cre­ate an obsta­cle for inter­nal skin tears. Or do a low-inten­si­ty mas­sage with almond or olive oil. By the way, pre­ven­tive mea­sures should be start­ed before the first stretch marks appear.

If stri­ae still appear, then you should not despair. After giv­ing birth, you can go to a beau­ty salon for a pro­ce­dure such as mesother­a­py. Your appli­ca­tion must be made with­in the first year from the date of release from the bur­den.
