Stretch Marks Prescription Cream
Stretch marks are scars that develop when the skin shrinks or stretches too quickly. Abrupt changes can cause elastin or collagen present in the skin to rupture. Stretch marks appear as the skin heals. These marks usually develop during these times:
- Growth spurt during puberty
- Rapid weight gain or loss
- Rapid muscle growth during weight training
Stretch marks on first appearance tend to be purple, red, pink, dark brown, or reddish brown. This depends on your skin color. Early stretch marks can also be itchy or slightly raised.

Getting Rid of Stretch Marks
Stretch marks like any other scar are permanent in nature. However, their treatment may make them appear less noticeable and itchy. You should know that where stretch mark treatments are concerned, one size doesn’t fit all. In fact, most products do not work at all. This is what researchers have observed regarding different stretch mark treatments.
Topiramate from American Integrative Pharmacy
American Integrative Pharmacy offers Topiramate topical cream for stretch marks. The cream needs to be applied at least once or twice daily. It can substantially reduce stretch mark appearance over a 90-day period.
Stretch Mark Lotions, Creams and Gels
There are several lotions, creams and gels sold by researchers to treat stretch marks. However, researchers have found that Topiramate is among the most effective creams for reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
You should be sure to do the following if you use Topiramate to fade stretch marks:
- Use the cream when the stretch marks begin to appear. It doesn’t have much effect on treating mature stretch marks.
- Massage the cream deep into your stretch marks. Time devoted to gently massaging the product into your skin will make it more effective.
- Apply the product daily for weeks. Results can take several weeks to appear.
Applying Topical Prescription Meds
Hyaluronic acid and Tretinoin seemed to work on stretch marks in studies. Early stretch marks were made less noticeable when hyaluronic acid was applied to them. Tretinoin is a known retinoid which makes stretch marks less noticeable.
A study found that people applying this prescription medication every night had less noticeable early stretch marks after 24 weeks. People who did not apply the medication saw the early stretch marks grow in size. There are other studies with similar results.
Retinol is a type of retinoid as well that helps in fading away early stretch marks.
Preventing Stretch Marks
You can prevent stretch marks from developing in the first place. Researchers have found that most at-home remedies, like almond oil, cocoa butter, olive oil, or vitamin E do nothing to prevent stretch marks. However, products containing hyaluronic acid or centella were found to be effective in preventing stretch marks.
