  • Baby oil will prevent them in the first place; Time will fade them. Nothing short of surgery will get rid of them. :/

  • i wish something could get rid of them but laser removal only fades them. the only way you can completely remove them is by removing the skin through surgery. nothing can prevent them either, they're hereditary and you will either get them or you won't. i spent hundreds of dollars on lotions and cremes during my pregnancy and still ended up with them from my boobs all the way down to my calves. i've used $1000's trying to remove them since and nothing has happened.

  • They're scars. You're stuck with them.

  • sorry hun, i went the way of the dermatologist - tried burning the of with acid treatments (suprvised) and it only lightened then, if you tan the skin, they fade just as easily without the pain involved with acid peels.
