Stretch marks?

Hey moms do any of you know how to get rid of stretch marks? I know everyone says its permanent and tanning may help, but isn't there ANYTHING at all? Any creams? Lotions? I'm talking about getting rid of them not prevent them like cocoa butter. Thank you!

  • Your best option for that is using TrilastinSR...You go to www.TrilastinSR.com and it's not really cheap but it DOES work a lot.

  • you can try scar minimizing creams that contain silicon but really, they are permanent. all you can really do is try to mask them.

    tummy tuck will work though :) they cut out the skin with the stretchmarks and pull the rest back together, but that only works if you have lose skin that actually needs tightened.

  • Nothing works but they will fade some over time. Some women are lucky and don't get them at all.

  • you cant get rid of them all you can do is try to mask them by making them lighter and sometimes that doesnt even work.
    even preventing them doesnt work if your ment to get them. its all in how your body stretches no amount of lotion or cream or anything else is going to help not get them if your ment to have them.
    Sorry for your luck i was lucky and didnt get them with my son and i havnt gotten any yet but im only 21wks so i guess we will see.

  • Time... time is the only way to really minimize their appearance unless you are willing to fork out big bucks for surgery.
