Hello, my name is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, board certified dermatologist, and author of "Six Weeks to Sensational Skin." This clip asks the question can stretch marks really go away? And I think that we need to understand that stretch marks kind of have a life cycle. First of all, how they are born is they are very hereditary so that if you have them it's mostly genetic, but they're also certainly born from anything that we might do that would stretch our skin. Now, this can be something as simple as pregnancy. It can be, sometimes, development of breasts in a young female, in a woman. It can be a man who's working out and doing a lot of weights, and really sees that his muscles are now stretching his skin, so be careful. If you do see that your stretch marks are developing; for instance, if you're working out a lot you may need to cut down a little bit on your weight training so that you can, hopefully, minimize the development of the stretch marks. Second thing is what do you do if you've got them. Well, if you have them ask your doctor about glycolic acid. We find that ten percent glycolic acid is wonderful for minimizing the appearance of stretch marks. And the best of luck to you. This is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo.
