Removing Stretch Marks on the Thighs 

Most of the folks that get stretch marks on their thighs are genetically predisposed to getting these buggers, and it can happen to virtually anyone from teenagers of both genders in the prime growth spurt years or adults of both genders from any sort of weight gain, be it fat or muscle related, as both can push the skin to tear if either are built up too quickly. One of the newest ways that has provoked the onset of stretch marks on the thighs is getting surgical butt implants. Yup, gluteal augmentation in some cases has stretched the skin too fast to accommodate the implants and zap! Stretch marks from the buttocks on into the thigh regions. Plastic surgeons swear up and down that this won’t happen, but it does, and if it does they can make a few more thousand dollars off of you with some laser surgery or microdermabrasion sessions to lessen the look of those stretch marks.

The rapid appearance of stretch marks can make one quickly look into stretch mark removal. There is no guaranteed method that will rid your thighs of stretch marks but some people do find that laser therapies and microdermabrasion have their merits when tackling the reduction of the stretch monsters. A lot of pain and discomfort are involved when you opt for these type of stretch mark removal treatment procedures, but people tend to take the word of a doctor as gold, and then hand over their own gold in the process – lots of it. For just a few stretch marks, you’re looking at about $1,000 worth of sessions for either procedure to get results and both require some downtime in between for healing. There is another option that requires no downtime and a considerably less amount of money to help diminish the appearance of those marks: a stretch mark cream.

Topical stretch mark products are far and away the most popular way to manage the look of thigh stretch marks as the creams are more accessible and it involves just you applying the applications. No judgmental eyes from spa or doctor’s office staff to make you feel worse than you already do, and you can get it done in just a few minutes a day, privately, at home and with loud music on to distract you if you like. No appointments or multiple sessions to drive to, just wake up and massage it onto your stretch marks a couple of times a day for a few months and you should be able to see some decent results.

Getting Rid of Cellulite on the Thighs

Cellulite used to be this deep dark secret that seemed like “some” were dealing with. The truth is only about 5% of adult women DON’T have it so the slightly concealed present reality is that most women DO have it and most of the effected women want to know how to get rid of cellulite and especially how to get rid of cellulite on thighs.

Though many don’t care about the causes of cellulite, as there are thought to be a few, they should be aware of some of these in order to have an easier time at reducing their cellulite. Even treatments and procedures by doctors cannot guarantee how to get rid of cellulite even with the latest advancements in methods and treatments. Several dermatologists have gone on record as saying that even though people think cellulite is a fat problem, it’s really mostly a dehydration (http://www.utmb.edu/pedi_ed/CORE/Fluids&Electyrolytes/page_09.htm) issue. Especially concerning incredibly skinny women that are beset with the orange peel feel and look on their thighs. These dermatologists purport that fat cells do bump their way up under the top layers of skin out simply due to the fact that the skin is overwhelmed with thirst.

Other factors, of course, must be considered and just drinking a ton of water is not going to repair the damage that has been done by becoming dehydrated but it will help. So does rehydrating the skin topically. This is why no matter what the latest high-end procedures you see being advertised by plastic surgeons and salons are, the most popular way to manage cellulite has been and always will be topical cellulite skin creams. The main function of a cellulite cream? Hydrating the skin and dehydrating it at the same time. What? Yeah they put caffeine in these creams that stimulate and dehydrate simultaneously, but the ingredients are full of moisturizing elements as well in hopes that the dehydrating and hydrating parts find the right targets. In most formulations they do, and with a determined mindset one can really see some fabulous results when using a good cellulite cream.

No matter where you have cellulite on your body, a cellulite cream is convenient to use and pain free. When you live in the more tropical climates you desperately need to be able to wear comfortable clothing and being able to slip on shorts is important so you want your thighs to look smooth and firm. With a good cellulite cream you can get great results in less than a month of usage, but you have to continually apply it to keep getting those results. Hydrate properly both inside and out and you may even see quicker results.
