Retin-A used for stretch marks??

have any of you used Retin-A for stretch marks? how well did it work. if you didnt use that, did you use something else that worked? i'm curious to know what works. my stretchmarks are passed the colored stage, now i'm trying to deal with the flabbiness from all the excess skin, because i have so many.

what works?!?!

  • I don't think I've tried anything with Retin-A, but I used to use StriVectin-SD and was impressed with it at first, but stopped getting results. I've since switched to Timewise Targeted Action Body Lotion, which is a LOT less pricey than StriVectin ($135 for 5 fl oz as compared to $28 for 8 oz!!!) and honestly it works just as well, if not better and doesn't have the gross medicinal scent that StriVectin had.
