Good morning want to ask, I am 20 years old and I have stretch marks on my upper thighs and buttocks, and lately I think my stretch marks are getting bigger, stretch marks are also directly colored white or not red-red first, I what should I do so the stretch marks don’t multiply, I’m very insecure. what tights do you use? but I rarely use tight pants with the most material for work, but often it’s like a rheumatic pain, maybe that’s it, thanks

Hi Taesy,


Stretch marks or striae are streaks of lines on the skin whose color varies in each person, can be lighter than skin (whitish), reddish, or brownish. The most common stretch marks are found in the upper arm near the armpit, around the buttocks and upper thighs, on the abdomen, and the bottom of the breast. These stretch marks arise due to excessive stretching of the skin (for example due to obesity or pregnancy).


Stretch marks do not give any complaints, except to interfere in terms of cosmetics. Generally stretch marks can fade but do not disappear completely. Genetic factors (other family members have complaints of stretch marks too), female sex, excessive stretching of the skin (for example: weight gain dramatically), long-term use of corticosteroid drugs, and an increase in cortisone in the body can increase the risk of stretch marks formation. The use of tight pants does not cause stretch marks.


The diagnosis of stretch marks is based on physical examination. Handling with topical medicines (topical) is disguising and can not be instantly lost. The topical medication that is usually used is a cream that contains isotretinoin / retinoids. Use of creams with these ingredients in the long term requires clinical supervision by a doctor. In addition, other therapies such as laser therapy and microdermabrasion can be used to disguise the appearance of stretch marks.


Please consult further with a dermatologist regarding the right way to reduce stretch marks. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
