  • Nothing can actually remove them short of laser surgery. However you can lighten them with some products out there. I have a WONDERFUL cream from Avon that has done wonders.

    Mederma can help but unfortunately it's very expensive. The tubes are tiny (comparable to Neosporin tubes, but just a tad bigger) and they cost about 25.00 a tube. You need to apply it twice a day for 3-4 months all over the area affected before you really start seeing results, so as you can imagine it can get time consuming AND expensive.

  • If they're really deep stretch marks the creams wont do much of a difference. You should really see a dermatologist if you'd like them removed. Would hate to see you waste your money.


    Here is a picture of some deeper ones. Please do note stretch mark lightening cream does not help the skin get back elasticity and if they're really bad or you have lots of them, you might need a tummy tuck as well in order to get your body back.
