How does Striae® Stretch Mark Creme work?
Striae® Stretch Mark Creme increases proteins (collagen) to reinforce weak skin and change the appearance of stretch marks. The creme helps to undo the weakness associated with stretch marks. After four weeks of continued use, the creme fades stretch mark redness and whiteness, smoothes out ridges, and strengthens and thickens surrounding skin. The creme may also prevent future stretch marks from pregnancy and weight changes by keeping the skin supple.
How and where do I apply the creme?
Twice a day, gently rub the creme into the skin. Please note that if you are a first time user, you should only apply the creme to a small test area to check for results. After 4 to 6 weeks, initial results should be visible.
Tip: Some users have found that the use of an exfoliating scrub (while bathing) improves the penetration of the creme into the skin. Other clients have told us that they have had faster results by applying the creme to the skin and leaving it there for five minutes before rubbing it in.
How long does it take to see results?
For most users, it takes from 4 to 6 weeks to regenerate the weakened skin and see results. Some clients have seen results after only a few days, but on average, it takes at least a month.
Will my stretch marks disappear completely?
It is not possible to completely remove stretch marks because they are essentially small scars of torn skin. It is possible, however, for the ridges to smooth out and the associated redness or whiteness to fade to the point that they are hardly visible.
Does it matter how old my stretch marks are?
Stretch marks that are less than 7 years old are more sensitive to Striae® Stretch Mark Creme, but the creme still works on older stretch marks. These older marks will need a longer application, so if you have had your stretch marks for more than seven years, we recommend that you wait at least 6 weeks before expecting to see results.
Why is the clinical study important?
There are many products on the market today that supposedly treat stretch marks. The clinical study proves the effectiveness of Striae® Stretch Mark Creme in treating stretch marks. You should not trust a product that does not have scientific support of its effectiveness.
When should I stop using the creme?
Striae® Stretch Mark Creme continues to improve stretch marks with extended use. The results you have with the creme are permanent; stopping its application will not undo the improvement. Some of our customers have seen continued improvement after using Striae® Stretch Mark Creme for more than a year. We therefore recommend that you continue to use the creme until you see no further improvement in the appearance of your stretch marks.
Are there any side effects?
No. Many clients have found that their skin becomes smoother because of the moisturizing elements in the creme. In a few cases, stretch marks may appear more red after the first few days of use. Dr. Moy believes that this initial redness/reaction signals an active circulation in the damaged area and the start of the regeneration process. Therefore, it is not necessary to cease application if this occurs. We use only natural and botanical ingredients, so users should not experience an allergic reaction.
Does the creme help scars or wrinkles?
Satisfied customers have indicated that new surgical scars have improved with the use of the creme. Striae® Stretch Mark Creme can remove some of the redness of new scars if it is applied shortly after the wound heals. Some clients have also reported success using the creme to remove small wrinkles.
