  • Stretchmarks are scars, you can't get rid of them, although there are some things you can do to try to help them lighten more quickly.

  • Friday the Rachael Ray show was all about this. There were creams, demos of lazers, before and after pictures of plastic surgery that is easy, quick, and relatively inexpensive. I usually don't watch this show so I don't know if you can watch it online or on YouTube. It must have a web site. The surgery pictures were amazing!

  • I found the link. It's on the Rachael Ray Show site and it's called How to Get Your Pre-baby Body Back in case the link doesn't work.

  • I used Bio Oil and it lightened mine to the point I was comfortable wearing a bikini again.

  • There isn't anything out there that can get rid of them completely. However, Cocoa Butter is a proven method to help reduce the appearence of stretch marks.
