I'm a model but I can't work with these stretch marks! It has been 7 months & cocoa butter isn't working. any other good ideas that actually work?

  • Nothing will get rid of them, except with time they will fade a lot.

  • think about it this way. I have a cream.Your going to rub it on your body and everywrinkle will magically dissapear. Sounds crazy huh. Creams don't work. Don't waste money. You have to have cosmetic surgery or deal with the lovely results of giving birth to a beautyful baby.

  • You can cover them up. There are wonderful products available. Does all your modeling jobs require your stretch marks to show?

  • I never had success w/ lotion either. They faded after about 1.5 yrs - Maybe a plastic surgeon can help?

  • There's no magic formula for stretch marks. It's a genetic thing so those women who slather themselves with lotion and don't get stretch marks wouldn't have got them anyway although monitoring weight gain also helps. They do fade over time but that can take years. Tanning reduces the appearance but I think the only way to get rid of them completely is laser surgery.

  • as a model they put you in full body "paint" stretch marks don't matter.. if you do photo shoots they take and edit photos, its the same thing as having a pimple. they can be covered.

  • Sorry honey. Stretch marks are forever. They fade on their own after a while (years) and the cocoa butter will help that along in some cases (didn't work for me). If they don't want a model with stretch marks, cover up and model with your clothes on.
