Stretch Marks 101 (Anonymous)

Number of pregnancies – 1
Pre preg weight – 118
Height – 5 7
Ending weight – 160

I have payed soooo much money to get rid of the hideous stretchmarks. Im talking thousands. no FRACTIONAL laser has worked for me…. trust me im living proof ive done 9 or 10 treatments. chem peels.. cremes you name it! I am currently flying to california to try this laser that was shown on dr oz. Its a erbium laser used by dr ourian. My marks are very extreme and everywhere from bottom, inside thighs, breast, stomach, flanks and hips. EVERYWHERE. note – these use to be very crater like but they have gotten better. I lost all weight with exercise but the marks haunt me .. I cannot wear a bathing suit. im constantly looking at them to see if they are better then yesterday. I think about them everyday. I never look at myself naked in the mirrior. I know it will just put me in a bad mood. Ill post pics after three more treatments with this laser. It has done improvements I dont currently have any before pics but here are some currently and ill post some more after I finish three more treatments.

BTW – sally henson bought at cvs . walgreens spray on panty hose stuff is miracle worker! get your color and spray in palm and RUB! rub rub rub and it looks covers lotttttts of the flaws =) makes me feel good anyways

    I have stretch marks a lot like yours, they are not that bad :) I still wear a bikini, I didnt for a long time but one time we took our daughter swimming and I saw this woman with 4 kids at the pool. She was in a bikini and I thought “she looks amazing!”, our kids started playing together and up close I saw that she had marks just like me, and I didnt see them until I was up close and looking straight at her. So I figured no one would notice mine, and they dont… until I point them out (which is hard not to do, I seem to always get bashful if I feel like someone is looking at my tummy or thighs) You are beautiful, I wish you could see that! But maybe after the treatments you will feel better, good luck to you!

    My stretch marks look a lot like yours post partum. I am sorry you’ve gone through all of those treatments with no improvement. It sounds to me that you are very self conscious about them. I have found that even though I thought that I would be heartbroken about not being able to wear a bikini.. I am really not. Yea, I’d like the marks to get better but I am really not very concerned about it.
    I hope that it gets better and the treatments work for ya, but if they don’t I hope that you can accept your body for what it is. You are beautiful.. and I am sure your child is too!

    It just hit me how sick us women are! First off, you look amazing…if you saw my stretch marks and loose skin you would faint…especially if you thinks that’s bad! How can you say “I can’t wear a bikini”? Who is stopping you? You are the only one stopping you. No one else will care. If anything, other mothers will be inspired! You look great!

    You gotta change that attitude. How sad that you have spent so much money trying to change what makes a woman a woman and not a little girl. Think of what you could do for your child with that money! The only thing stopping you from loving yourself is YOU. Get out of your way, girl, you are beautiful.

    I feel the same way about my stretch marks. I started out at 140 (prepregnancy) gained 20 lbs and am now right below 140 (at 11 weeks PP). I am trying something new. I am putting expressed breast milk on mine and have started to see a little change. Everyone says how good breast milk is for sinus infections, eye infections, etc etc and it is good for skin irritants. I figured, why not. It is free and I over produce to begin with. I will let you know how it goes!

    carboxy therapy. If you have money to fly around the country trying different lasers then try carboxytherapy for stretchmarks. Google it to find out more. Im saving up for it. It cant hurt.
