Luckily the one thing I was spared during my two pregnancies is/was stretch marks.
Ok, maybe if I look reaallly closely I can see a few on my hips but those are most likely from a teen-hood growth spurt as is oft the case and they aren't at all bothersome.
But this isn't always the case.
Weight loss after pregnancy can turn those once super-volume-mega nursing boobs into a road map of silver and white lines once they've deflated. I've had a ton of moms reach out to me, desperate for a solution to this unavoidable post-pregnancy skin contraction yick. It's pretty basic, the skin stretches, rips in fact and little scars form - but you don't see them until you've lost the weight and the skin is all loosey-goosey. This discovery can be devastating to a mom just finding her post-baby body again and without surgery to remove the skin, mom's are frantic for a solution so they can get back in a bikini without star-bursts poking out from every angle. What. To. Do. ??
Creams. Gels. Silicone strips.
Whatevs. Does any of it really work?
I found this video today about lasers for removing stretch marks and it actually looks pretty good!
Wondering if anyone out there has tried this.
If so, drop us a line and let us know how it worked for you.
