  • You can't get rid of them...it's genetics....the ONLY way to get rid of them is a tummy tuck like PP said....

  • IDK, but I don't have them on my belly yet. Mainly on my butt and thighs. Any tips for that? Does cocoa butter really work?

  • "Does cocoa butter really work? "

    In my experience.... HELL NO! But for me, NOTHING worked.

  • Try Vasoline cream.
    I didn't use anything and was lucky that the only ones I have are on my side and you can't see them that bad

  • You can use products to help minimize them or help them to fade a bit, but you will never, ever get rid of them without surgery.
    Think of it this way - a pantyhose gets a run in it and you can't repair that. That is essentially what happens to your skin. It gets stretched to the point where the 'fibers' rip apart, almost like a run, and the edges will not go back together.
    Sorry, but anything you see or read otherwise are just gimmicks and lies.
