I gave birth to a 10lb 3oz baby 12 weeks ago and needless to say my belly is covered in stretch marks. I used Bio oil and Palmers cocoa butter all through my pregnancy so I'm looking for other ways to get rid or dull my stretch marks.
Thanks for answering - your answer appears below
Hi and congratulations on the birth of your baby! I would agree with some of the other answers that Collagen Stimulation Therapy would be by far the best option for you, as it is the least invasive way to make a positive difference to your skin's elasticity and appearance.
The sooner you can begin, the better, as always when dealing with stretch marks, but Collagen Stimulation Therapy is great for older stretch marks too.
The results really are incredible, and I hope that you will find a practitoner near you and get some further advice.
Collagen Stimulation Therapy is also known as Dermaroller treatment - the lattter being the original method. Both work on the same principles. Ideal for stretch marks - we are getting fantastic results in our clinic. You will see an improvement straight away. For more information including before and after pictures please see our website. Free consultations are available from our London and Essex based clinics.
Firstly congratulations on your baby! Wow what a whopper!
I strongly recommend a dermaroller collagen stimulation treatment using at least a 2mm needle roller to get deep into the tears and re vascularise the rips in the collagen and tissue.
For best results the sooner you can get your first treatment - whilst the stretch marks are still reddened the better.
In my Manchester clinic I offer a combination treatment ;
The first stage is a SWiCH Rejuvenation treatment to stimulate the cellular activity
Then two weeks later I would do the first Dermaroller Treatment
I apply sterile mixtures of specific peptides, vitamins,minerals, human fibroblast cells and skin growth factors onto the skin during the treatment to encourage collagen proliferation and healing.
Several treatments will be needed at least 6 weeks apart.
The stretch marks will never return to the same appearance as uninjured skin but they fade, flatten, contract and smooth considerably.

Hi - congratulations on the birth of your baby. Medical needling is definitely the best way to get rid of those stretch marks, I have been treating ladies with this problem and get great results. Have a look at a demo of it on my website: http://www.indulgencebeauty.me.uk/microneedling.htm

The newest technology for treating stretch marks is called ‘Matrix RF Fractional Skin Resurfacing’. Matrix RF works by frequency energy being precisely directed to tiny matrix spots. The healthy skin around the marks accelerates the healing process of the skin. Post treatment, you may notice increased levels of beneficial collagen, and the texture of your skin becomes smooth and elastic. We are the first of two clinics in the UK to offer this treatment; it is the latest technology in Medical Aestetics!
We've seen amazing results from this treatment, please visit our website for full details http://www.mbnsclinic.co.uk
