  • There is no cure. They will fade over time. You can have cosmetic laser treatment to lessen them as well, but that's expensive.

  • ive had stretch marks since i was 14 (too fat not pregnant)19 now) and tried a bunch of stuff. cocoa butter doesnt work too well but i havent tried the other stuff. maybe bio oil works, dont know for sure. id start with the walmart health and beauty section, they have many items for that problem. other than that they fade over 2 to 3 years. good luck to you

  • They don't really ever go away, they do fade somewhat though over time, but not completely. Sorry.

  • At the tanning salon place.. the ladies were talking about microdermabrasion would help the stretch marks fade and go away.. but I couldn't tell you from experience. I never got any - I used cocoa butter and then the pregnancy lotion to help not get stretch marks that I found at walmart....

  • I have no idea, but if you figure it out let me know. I look like Freddie Krueger attacked my belly!

  • Bio Oil is great, but expensive for the amount, and the routine must be stuck with for it to work its magic.
