A successful bodybuilder will see drastic changes in the size of their body in a relatively short period of time. While the quick gain of muscle mass is satisfying, the stretch marks that can come along with that increase in muscle mass may not seem as pleasing. What can you do about these stretch marks after they have made an appearance? You can start with the following four stretch mark removers. They may not completely eliminate your stretch marks, but they will at least lighten them up so they are less noticeable.

1. Mederma

Mederma lotions, creams, and gels use Cepalin to lighten the color of scars and stretch marks while changing their texture and reducing their appearance. You do not need a prescription to use these products, and they are one of the most effective options currently on the market.

2. Barmons Cream

3. Vitamin E

Find creams that provide a healthy dose of vitamin E for your skin, and make sure you are taking a high quality multivitamin on a daily basis. Well nourished skin is less likely to scar as a result of stretching for muscle development. Vitamin E is one of the most beneficial vitamins for stretch mark problems.

4. Microdermabrasion or Laser Therapy

Noninvasive, safe cosmetic procedures are now available for bodybuilders interested in reducing the appearance of their stretch marks in a more advanced manner. Microdermabrasion and laser therapies can deliver rapid results, so you do not have to wait for creams, lotions, oils, or vitamins to start taking effect. These procedures may not completely zap your stretch marks so they are never seen again, but they will make them less prominent and easier to hide in very little time.

Which of these four stretch mark removers you use depends on what you can afford financially and how much time you want to spend waiting for results. The longer your stretch marks have been affecting your skin, the more aggressive treatment you will need. New stretch marks may be more responsive to creams and oils while stretch marks that have been in the skin for months or years may be more responsive to microdermabrasion or other cosmetic procedures.

Remember, you can also reduce the prominence of stretch marks by darkening your skin. Spend some time in the tanning bed or rub on a cream with a darkening complex. You will instantly make the stretch marks less noticeable while you find a more permanent solution.
