  • I don't know but maybe even check out the scar creams, since that is what a stretch mark is. I havent done this yet not thin yet so I haven't bothered with it.

  • lol i can't stand the smell of cocoa butter either. it makes me gag, but i think it worked for me. i used palmer's cocoa butter firming lotion. but to be honest, idk if i should credit the lotion with the fading or if it just naturally happens over time. but i had really bright red stretch marks & they've now blended in with the tone of my skin to make it almost invisible.

  • Thera rollers hurt, but if you buy a good quality one, then use any scar cream after you're done, they really fade. I've been using mine for 5 months and they are almost completely gone. I heard from a friend it works slightly quicker with mederma i think that's what it's called instead of a scar cream, but I never tried that so no idea.

  • There is no cream or lotion out there to rid of them. Those things only fade them. To remove them you hasn't to have them surgically removed (tummy tuck). Ask your doctor they'll tell you the same.

  • Once you have stretch marks, you have stretch marks. No cream or lotion or oil will make them go away. A dermatologist would be your best bet. There may be laser treatments or something, but I don't know of any.

  • I have seen several creams at the drug store stating that they can reduce the appearance of stretch marks

  • I didn't think those went away, I know Mederma can help reduce the appearance of them.

  • You can fade them with vitamin e oil, but you'll never get rid of them without surgery.
