Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body where rapid growth occurs. Stretch marks on breasts often occur as a result of puberty, weight gain or pregnancy. These scars can be quite unsightly as they often are red, pink or white in color. Thankfully, there are many things you can do to reduce stretch marks on your breasts. Follow a dedicated treatment regime and you'll notice significant improvements in your stretch marks.

Things You'll Need

  • Shea butter
  • Scar treatment cream
  • Bleaching cream

Instructions

    • 1

      Rub shea butter onto your breast stretch marks daily. This natural butter is deeply hydrating. When your skin is parched, stretch marks are more apparent. Shea butter will keep your skin supple, reducing the appearance of these marks.

      Apply a scar treatment cream to your stretch marks. Most scar treatment creams contain onion extract, which naturally fades stretch marks. You can find such creams at most health and drug stores. Since the cream works over time, you'll have to apply it daily for at least 12 weeks before seeing results.

      Try bleaching cream if your stretch marks are new. Fresh stretch marks are usually deep red or pink. If you use a bleaching cream on the marks daily, it will gradually lighten them so they blend in with surrounding skin. You can find bleaching creams at most cosmetic and drug stores.

    • 4

      Massage your stretch marks twice daily. This increases circulation so vital nutrients can more easily reach the skin, thereby aiding the healing process. Use firm pressure and circular motions to rub the stretch marks for at least 90 seconds.

    • 5

      Get microdermabrasion. During treatment, a licensed professional will use a small device to buff away the top layers of your skin. Your skin will be red and irritated directly following treatment. Once it heals, your stretch marks will be less apparent. With repeated sessions, you can greatly reduce stretch marks on your breasts.

    • 6

      Consider laser treatment. Lasers are commonly used to get rid of stretch marks. The laser's light breaks up scar tissue and lightens area of darker pigmentation. In addition, it encourages collagen production so your skin will appear firmer, younger and smoother. Depending on the severity of your stretch marks, multiple sessions may be necessary.

Tips & Warnings

  • Keep your breasts covered from the sun's harmful rays. Choose clothing that protects against UV rays.
