  • You can get rid of them but my using vitamin E oil and cocoa butter moisturizer you can fade their appearance from red to white. Over time they will become less noticeable but you can make them go away. Sorry to tell you that I haven't received any stretch marks with my two pregnancies.

  • the vitamin E and cocoa butter mix works for some but not me, oh no... lol, i hate my belly now too, it's horrible, i hope it's not TMI but since we've had our first son in july, i havent made love to him without a shirt on... i'm very self conscious of it. even if my belly were as toned as it could get, they'd still be there... but it was totally worth it :)

  • Start using Maderma now. It'll help fade the apperance. Sorry you've got them... I have 4 little tiny ones on my left hip and one little one where my belly button was periced... I'm only 36 weeks though but I consider myself very lucky so far.

  • None of those creams work. Just because you used a cream and at the end didnt get no stretch marks it wasnt because of the cream. Its because you have more elasticity then other people. I know a few people who never got stretch marks at all om there stomach but some on there breasts. I have them and there ugly yes. The only way to get ridof them is not with creams but with Laser called ReLume Repigmentation. Safe and effective UV phototherapy repigments skin disorders such as vitiligo, white, mature stretch marks and scars from acne, trauma or surgery.

    I was going to get this done but i am not back home. Once i am done with kids i will be getting this done and yes it costs a few hundred dollars but it works.

  • I haven't got any stretch mark and i didn't use anything that i normally don't use on my skin, my sisters and mother don't have them either. You cant prevent getting them, what you can do is use certain creams to make them less obvious.
