Thanks Dymond Diosa. YOu've convinced me to get mine checked out. I have tons, and my mom has none. My skin stays saggy when i lose weight (it doesn't bounce back like an elastic). My eye sight suddenly got bad one summer about 10 years ago. I went from being able to see better than 20/20 to not being able to see the chalkboard over just one summer. I think it was fairly immediate actually. Now I can't see my monitor without high prescription glasses. Could something there be related? My mom only needed glasses in her old age, and my dad got classes since he was a kid. I'm not like either of them (nor is my brother). So maybe this is all related somehow. I would pay THOUSANDS to get this fixed. I know it's superficial, but it's the ultimate let down for me. I can't stand the way I look, and even when I'm slim my skin just hangs. I'm only 25.

I'm going to see a dermatologist when I get back to Canada, and look into some of the resurfacing treatment for scar treatments. Then look into what i can do about my collagen levels. Maybe something can be done and it's not too late for me.

To AnhPhan:
Scratching even when using Retin-A is still probably not a good idea. It's gonna be a little irritating 4 a while, and your lucky that it's only itchy and its not burning or anything.

To Assembler:
Those symptoms sound like collagen depletion or damage, but they also sound like other, more common things. Unless you've used Cortizone creams alot or any other topical steroid cream, then your ailments may not be related. Nevertheless, go see your primary care physician so he/she can tell you a good dermatologist to see unless you already have one. I don't think it's ever too late to do something about your skin as it is constantly regenerating (sadly, however, collagen is slow to keep up in the process).

Buena suerte, ladies!

Mines have faded with time but I still find them annoying and still very self conscious about them. I'll definitely try microdermabrasion.

I've recently just found out I have stretch marks, when I found out I have hips!

Ive heard that using vitamin E liquid can help to reduce stretch marks. maybe worth a try.

What's the relation between a lack of collagen and diminishing eyesight, Dymond Diosa? That worries me because I do have a tendency to get stretchmarks even if I only gain a small amount of weight (the ones on my sides were from gaining 7lbs in over a month), and I've had increasingly bad eyesight for years. uhoh.
