  • Use Mederma. You can but it anywhere. I would suggest Walmart if you have one nearby because it will be a bit cheaper there. It will be between $10-$20 a tube. You will have to use it numerous times a day for at least 6 months to see the true effects. Also, in the meantime use sunless tanner or go to a salon to use the Mystic tanning to cover them up till they fade more. Tanning will make the stretch marks stand out more.

  • Honestly, I think it varies from person to person...

    I'd say rozepyle was lucky. Even if your stretchmarks take on some color, they're still not going to match your skin! Moisturizer and time are your best methods, though new products are coming out all the time, something is bound to work sometime!

  • I agree with the tanning thing..it makes them fade temporarilly..i have a ton of stretch marks too....i did go to see my dermatologist and she said that it might work for laser therapy....only it has to be done while the stretch marks are still dark...mine are light so i'm stuck with them...but don't forget that you got a wonderful child and to me, thats more important than any stretch marks!!
