Stretch mark remedy???

I didn't use anything to prevent stretch marks and now I have very deep, dark stretch marks. Is there ANYTHING I can do to reduce their appearance?

  • My sister used AVON Anew Clinical Stretchmark Smoother. She said that her stretchmarks used to be dark red, but after a few uses, it got lighter.

  • Try the stretchmark formula lotion by cocoa butter. It has a picture of a pregnant woman on it. I didn't get any and this is what I used, it says it lightens existing marks as well.

  • Nothing works. Don't waste your money. I have even paid over 100 bux for striv-ectin. Doesnt work! Once you have stretch marks welcome them with open arms. They will fade and not be so aised and dark over time but they are there to stay! Sorry, I hate them too ;(

  • Plastic surgery might, if you have enough loose skin for a tummy tuck. Otherwise, I would use cocoa butter and baby oil every day to help the skin heal as much as possible
