i would have to agree with bio-oil, it is great, it fades scars from burns or sores, it's expensive but you don't need that much at all

Bio oil is pretty good and palmers cocoa butter works well too. They eventually fade. I have a friend who had purplish red stretchmarks on her belly and had them lasered off and you can't even really tell that they were there, but I'm sure thats expensive. I think exercise, diet, and moisturizing your skin alot is the key. Hope that helps : )

Unfortunately you can never actually get rid of stretch marks - once they are there, they are there for good. The good thing is that there are a number of things on the market that can help diminish the appearance of stretch marks. I've never had a problem with my stretch marks, but I used a moisturizing body lotion the entire time I was pregnant, so mine aren't really bad (at least I don't think so). Bio-oil apparently works really well, as do some of the creams made by Lansinoh. Vitamin E really helped me with some of my surgical scarring, so I tried it with my stretch marks and found it helped a bit. Mostly it's just a trial and error process - what works for one person might not for another - I'd recommend just getting a little trial bottle of whatever stretch mark product you think will work and use it - if it works, great, get the big bottle - if it doesn't, you can try again with a trial bottle of another product.
