  • They will get smaller and lighter after a while... I had really bad stretchmarks too... My daughter is now almost 2 and you can barely see the stretchmarks anymore...

  • I sell Avon and personally used the Anew Clinical Stretch Mark Smoother cream. They were red and faded entirely with daily use after a few months. I have customers buying this stuff nonstop its great! use coupon code fsany for free shipping!

  • I was actually watching something on comcast on demand for parents.. a dermatologist said that microderm abrasion can make stretchmarks a lot smaller. When I was in beauty school, there was a girl in my class that was pregnant and got microderm abrasion done by the esthetics class, after just a coupld min, they went from purple to white and quite a bit smaller!

    Also, if you're not breastfeeding they recommend vitamin A, even Retin-A will work.

  • I just had a consultation at a medi-spa. They told me noting will make them go awy. They will get lighter but the skin does not go back to before baby once it is stretched. After you are done having babys get a tummy tuck.
