  • How do you get rid of them? Turn back time and use protection. Hah...I dont think you can 100% get rid of them, they will fade though. Dont worry about them. shit giirl you WORKED for them =) they arent ugly, they make you who you are. Be proud of who you are

  • I don't think they will ever go away completely without some kind of plastic intervention lol but they will fade over time...I've heard that Bio-Oil works really well to help them fade

  • Getting completely rid of them is impossible, but they can fade some. The cocoa butter works before you get the stretch marks, not really after too well.

  • you cant get rid of them, in time they will fade. the lotions an creams dont prevent or get rid of them either.. if you get them you get them cant really do much about it.

  • Yeah, I too have stretch marks that totally irritate me. All over my stomach, my sides, breasts, and inner thighs. I used Palmer's during pregnancy and it helped NONE. I have tried bio oil and some lotion from Mary Kay, neither worked. But, I do scar worse than the normal, so I have totally given up! I know Merderma has stretch mark treatment now. If you find something that works, please let me know!!!!! Good luck!!!
