Good luck - if it works let us know. I have coworkers that stretch marks are a big issue for.

I have the same issue, only they are also on my arms and all over my stomach and super dark red ones too, its so hideous! I did a lot of research online and I guess this stuff called Bio Oil which they at drugstore.com for like 12 bucks is supposed to be awesome. I guess a lot of body builders use it but all these question sites I looked at showed most people using it really saw results, I was gonna try and order some today.

Nothing worth having is ever easy.

I'm one of the lucky ones without any stretch marks. I've had 4 kids, started very thin at each pregnancy; none of my sisters or our mother has stretch marks either - I guess Mom gave us good skin!

My stretch marks disappeared completely a long long time ago. Maybe this is because I have a pale complexion (if so, I can finally see one positive about the paleness of my skin, which otherwise I have always disliked!).

Yup what she said - they do lighten up and fade over time. As you firm up they are less noticeable but for the most part, they are just part of life. I have seen plenty of women AND men with stretch marks - kinda hard to avoid if your skin type isn't super flexible and you have kids, grow real quick/bulk up (like some of the weight lifter types).

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

Some of the firming lotions may make the stretch marks look less noticable, but unfortunately the only ways to get rid of stretch marks are laser treatment and surgery.

I have horrendous stretch marks from my inner thighs all the way down to behind my knees and on my hips. They range from white to dark pink. I have tried using Vitamin E directly on my skin, and it seems to help a little - although its very sticky and makes my legs feel horrible. Does anyone have any tips to get rid of these stretch marks??

I'd really appreciate it!
