is there any way to make strech marks fade once they're already on your skin?

I found bio oil a little too greasy. erm I'm not sure on the proper names but boots so a great cocoa butter stretch mark cream thats worked so far. If it's any concilation to ya'll my bubs is 11 months and I still have mine covering all my hips most of my tummy above and below my b.button, on my outter and inner thighs, my bum and miraculously on the back of my knee caps goin halfway down my legs which kinda prevents shorts in summer lol. I did manage to put on 6 ston in pregnancy and thought i was gna get surprised by triplets or summit but nope just a 7lb8oz er and a lot of waters lol.I've used the boots stuff for a few months now and thankfully some of the not so deep ones have gone more faded, hopefully my malled by a dog look will go away soon lol. And hey at the end of the day, we only go them so our bubbs had enough room to grow (although I can't quite explain my knee caps lol) and get to us safelt. I try to think positively if they get me down and remember that every little mark appeared because my baby grew inside of me and it was me and me alone that made sure she was one hundred percent safe every second of every day lol good luck all

to richelle: i didnt get any purple or red marks..just a few white ones on my side which i am proud of because they were created by my bean (thats my daughters nickname)..i didnt have a peanut either..i had a bean!! (she was a 5lb 6 oz baby and only 16 inches long lol so i didnt get very big and she was on time but im a small person) i wish everyone luck with their stretch marks..if they dont fade or go away..just remember they were created by someone special

Nothing has worked for me either, if it makes anyone feel better... I HAVE THEM EVERYWHERE. Although i didnt have any the whole way through pregnancy but i got them at the very end.. I hate them but hey... look what just grew inside me. i didnt have a peanut. =]

Stretchmarks will NEVER EVER disappear. Just keep your skin well moisturised and they will eventually fade.

Hi, im pregnant at the minut and baby oil is the best thing! Put it in the bath or when you get out of the bath apply it too wet skin! Coconut body butter is good too but very exensive! aslong as your skin gets lots of moisturising they should fade! xxxx

they do fade but only to a point. mine are all over my belly and starting to fade but it will never look the same. im jelous of every one that goes back to normal

I would try Bio-Oil, or anything with Vitamin K, you usually put it on twice daily and it should do the trick. But If that doesn't work, just keep in mind that they do fade on their own eventually :)
