  • Nope no solution--I live where there is sun most of the year and they only fade with time, and putting yourself in a position of exposing your self to extra UV rays in vain isn't really a good thing.

  • Stretch marks tend to tan allot lighter than the non stretched skin. And despite EVERYTHING you hear or read about mirical creams getting rid of stretch marks, if your genitically predispositioned to them your gonna have them. Diet and excercise will lessen them greatly, and plactic surgery will fix it to. Do your best not to gain more weight then the Dr says when preggo.

  • You can try applying the herb chickweed -- it is for scarring and can help lighten stretch marks faster.

  • NO IT IS THE OPPOSITE. THE SUN AND TANNING ENHANCE SCARS AND MAKE THEM STAND OUT MORE ALSO CAN MAKE THEM NOT FADE AS SOON. ITS BEST TO KEEP ANY SCAR OUT OR THE SUN OR TANNING BED.
    USE MEDERMA IT WORKS GREAT! WALMART AND TARGET HAVE IT AND MANY DRUG STORES.
