Take pride in your stretch marks. It's a badge of honor and a reminder of all you have accomplished. Besides, you can make up some great stories if you want to about them! emoticon

I was happy with the results I got from Mederma. The stretch marks didn't vanish, but they did become less obvious.

Dear Arwa890,
If you have finished having your family, you can actually get lazer treatments which doctors use to remove tattoo's and the results are supposed to be very good..
Another point is to try keeping a stable weight, try not to yoyo radically up and down too much in weight..

I have had a tummy tuck and this surgery doesn't remove them, the doctor promised me I would get a completely new set from the post operation swelling and because the intestines can go into shock and take a couple of days to wake up again..

Annoying problem- a good skin series and avoiding the sun avoid the skin aging faster than necessary..

Sadly there is nothing that will make them go away. Don't waste your money on any of those creams that say they will- they don't work.

Over time they do become much less noticeable.
