  • you can't just "take them off" I wish it were that easy, they'll never go away without surgery. You can use creams and oils to help them fade and with time they will get smaller and lighter

  • Belt sander? Just kidding, don't try that!!
    There is no easy way. Most of the time, as your skin shrinks, they'll fade/shrink as well but you'll probably have them forever. I think mederma makes a cream for scars that works on stretchmarks, too.

  • you can't take them off, but there are ways to help reduce scars and stretchmarks. Microdermabrasions will help stimulate the skin to increase the bodies natural healing and is one of the few things out there that I've seen actually work.

  • lol to the ladies about the sand blaster..

    actually microdermabrasions is like a mini sand blaster.. it's a massager that allows mineral creams with little grains of sand to help remove dead skin and stimulate the collegen and elastin in the skin. .

  • To help them fade I use Mederma and Bio Oil. They will never ever be gone but will fade over time. Only way to get rid of them is thru Laser or more severe tummy tuck if its on your stomach that you want gone and breasts by getting a lift because they will cut some part of the skin off. Otherwise, stick with over the counter products that I mentioned no other products help accept those two.
