About Stretch Marks
From Pregnancy to rapid weight gain and loss while dieting, stretch marks may result for many reasons. Stretch marks are those ugly markings on your skin that appear during pregnancy, or puberty. They look like bands, stripes, or lines on your skin. Pregnancy can be a leading cause of stretch marks because of the cycle the body goes through over nine months.
Being pregnant twice made me look around for not only something to help prevent stretch marks but also to help lessen the appearance of those I already had from our first child.
One thing to keep in mind while looking at stretch mark creams is whether or not they contain collagen; a natural substance that is found in your skin that gives it is elasticity. As your body ages, collagen is depleted and you may get stretch marks. When collagen is added to these creams, your skin absorbs the collagen and tightens. This can reduce the risk of developing stretch marks. In this respect, the claims that collagen improves stretch marks holds true.
Here are some reviews of a couple stretch mark products that I found during my search.
Revitol Stretch Mark Solution
How it works: Revitol's Stretch Mark Prevention Cream contains a powerful combination of concentrated ingredients proven to individually strengthen the skin, improve collagen structure, and increase natural elasticity. This cream penetrates deeply into the skin cell layers and works to improve their elasticity by strengthening the collagen and elastin-rich tissues that are responsible for the flexibility and elasticity of the skin. The product has a rejuvenating effect by stimulating cell growth and production; enhancing skin renewal. This product helps to decrease the appearance of existing stretch marks, and is also an effective preventative treatment method for them. Stretch Mark Prevention Cream can be used after pregnancy to eliminate the appearance of stretch marks by stimulating skin renewal.

TestimonialsKatie M. - Philadelphia:
I'm writing to thank you for this amazing product. I just had a baby last month and since I began having stretch marks I started using Stretch Mark Prevention Cream. I used it three times a day. In the third week using this cream I already saw that my stretch marks were becoming thinner and less apparent. Also, no new stretch marks appeared after I started using your product! It's a fantastic cream and I will definitely tell my friends about it!Charlotte H. - Calgary, Canada:
I'm a 39 year old woman and I'm expecting my second baby. My first pregnancy was when I was 33 years old and I got some stretch marks on my abdomen. Now, after starting on your Revitol Stretch Marks Prevention Cream since the second month there are no new stretch marks, and my husband pointed out that the ones from my first pregnancy seem to be disappearing! I'm amazed at the difference in my skin; it feels healthy, nourished and strong. I'm really excited about this product and will definitely continue to use it!

Testimonials"I am beyond words for my gratitude to Trilastin-SR. I had my baby last year and I can’t begin to explain how heartbroken I was when I found out that the horrible marks on my belly were there for good. I wasn’t even sure what they were. No one prepared me. I cried when my doctor told me they wouldn’t go away. Through a friend I found out about Trilastin-SR and began using it about 2 months ago. Unbelievable! The change has been so dramatic, even my doctor was impressed. That I can actually have hope now has been a very emotional experience for me. EC Research has my eternal thanks for developing such a fantastic product."
Mantua, NJ."Trilastin SR is the best cream I have tried. I have very sensitive skin and usually only use baby lotion. So far most of the creams that I have tried irritated my skin but not Trilastin SR. It is so clean that within minutes it is completely absorbed into my skin with no oily or smelly residue. I have really bad stretch marks from having twins and I know that the only way to completely get rid of them is surgery but that’s not my thing. All I want is to look like I have normal skin again and Trilastin SR has started me on that journey. I love your product!"
