  • I've used about everything and nothing really works. It seems like it's just a ploy to sell creams half the time.

  • Genetics and weight gain are what makes your breaks those stretch marks. The creams are just a marketing gimmick.

  • Mederma will help them shrink/fade and so will time. However nothing will make them ever "go away" and nothing will "prevent" them from appearing, it is all genetic.

  • Bio Oil faded mine. I was using it when I was pregnant with my 5th. I didn't get any new ones and it faded my old ones.
