Ahhh, pregnancy. That magical time when we’re growing a new little human life inside us. Our bodies transform into amazing incubators for our little ones and we give ourselves over to the fact that we are no longer one, but two. However during this process we also start to notice major changes in our bodies, some of them not all awesome. Stretch marks are an extremely common result of pregnancy (and your rapidly stretching skin), but you don’t have to sit by and wait and watch for them to appear. Stratamark by Stratpharma was specifically designed for stretch marks and it’s one of the most popular stretch mark creams on the market. Here’s why you should consider Stratamark for your pregnancy and stretch marks.
What is Stratamark?
Firstly, you can be confident that it is safe for use by pregnant women, nursing mothers and those with sensitive skin. It contains no fragrances, alcohol or parabens that can be harmful for your baby. Stratamark is great for :
- Prevention of stretch marks during growth spurts and pregnancy
- Prevention of stretch marks due to bodybuilding or weight gain/loss
- Reduction of discoloration and redness associated with stretch marks
- Relief of discomfort, including itching.
From Swiss company Stratpharma, Stratamark is the first product for stretch marks that has been clinically proven to prevent and treat this previously difficult to avoid skin condition. Stratapharma are renowned for their products – check out some of their others for wound and scar healing here – and are used by some of the world’s top medical professionals. Many products claim to help with stretch marks but Stratamark has clinical evidence to prove it works.
How does Stratamark work?
Stratamark is a gel that helps to normalise the collagen synthesis cycle – in a nutshell it means it hydrates, helps to flatten any raised skin, and help the affected area look just like the rest of your skin. You can use it on any part of your body including your breasts, abdomen, thighs, back or anywhere else you are concerned with stretch marks. It is best to start to apply the product before you see any stretch marks, however if you already have them that’s ok too – Stratamark will help to reduce their appearance. It dries to form an invisible sheet and a small amount of the gel goes a long way (a lot less required than typical creams or moisturisers), so it’s cost effective.
It is suggested to apply Stratamark at least once every day, or after every time you wash or shower.
We have so many members of the Plastic Surgery Hub community who use this gel and sing its praises, including me! That’s why we sell Stratamark and the other Stratpharma products in our shop, so just jump here if you want to get some.
So, for all you beautiful mothers or mums-to-be out there who are even remotely concerned about stretch marks, I definitely recommend you check Stratamark out.
