    Default stretch marks

    ever since i started working out, i've been getting little stretch marks near the top of the armpit area. i heard this can happen because the pec muscle grows at a really fast rate.

    anyone have this happen to them, and if so, what kinds of things have you done to try to minimize the stretch marks?

    Do stretch marks go away? If a girl has kids, she almost always has stretch marks, so im wondering if they ever disappear.

    Yea, I've got them. They're small though and you can only see them if you look close. I've heard they don't go away but until mine get really noticeable I'm not too concerned. There is a vitamin that is supposed to help (and a topical cream). I'm sure if you looked it up on google you'd find some products!

    stretch marks will not go away. the redness can go away buy rubbing retin-a on it.

    Stretch marks (striae) never fully go away, since it is scar tissue. LIke all scar tissue, it will remodel with time. Initially it is red/pink because there is some blood vessels that are recruited to help repair the damage. Eventually the scar retracts as more fibrous tissue is laid down, and the redness slowly fades. With time, your body alters the scar so that it is less noticable - typically, this takes between a year or two for the striae or scar to mature. Some people scar differently, and this progression does not always happen. Some creams including those containing retinoic acid, can help improve the appearance of stretch marks.

    supposedly, stretch marks will never completely go away. the redness, however, is supposed to fade with time.
    anyways, i've been using a lotion that has vitamin e in it for a few months now, but it hasn't done anything.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    No. It's just due to growth. Heavy weight do stimulate growth though so I guess that's true, but switching to lighter weights has nothing to do with anything.
