I've heard that Palmer's Cocoa Butter is good...I just bought some yesterday and tried it today. It'll take a while, I'm sure, but I hope to see results. I have just a few stretch marks on my outer thigh and a couple on my ***. Hopefully I don't get anymore. And I'm going to make sure I don't get any on my stomach if I have a child.

I have stretch marks on my inner thighs

This is where I gain weight 1st and of course lost it 1st. My weight changes with swimming on and off seasons... Kind of embarrasing how unstable my weight is

I have them on the front of my stomach and right under my arm. I think this might be the fact that Im only 15 and due to weight loss right? Aggh this sucks that Im the only guy I know who has them.

when you lose weight are there usually marks that show significant weightloss?

My friend who is sixteen has stretchmarks, and he had them when he was 15, and got them because he gained a lot of mass (in muscle)


You get stretch marks if you either lose a lot or gain a lot of sizre in a short timeframe.

babygurl i have been trying pure shea butter, its hard to put it on but its starting to fade them a little... I put Bio Oil on the other ones on my ***...

But i don't understand why the ones on my breasts are red/purple? Will they eventually turn white???

Can you take out stretch marks with scar laser removal?

Go to the dermatologist while the marks are still red. They're mucheasier to get rid of at this stage. He might prescribe Tazorac

Guys, I hate to say this, but it is highly unlikely that any of the common cocoa butter preparations will work on stretch marks.

Stretch marks are a breakdown of collagen just under the dermis, and no topical moisturizer will penetrate . . . with the possible exception of high dose Vitamin E oils and creams, and a few prescription creams.

They do get lighter with time, and laser treatments look promising.

Sephora_, thats exactly when I got mine, my growth spurt and I went up two cup sizes!! I went to a specialist and he said he could remove the ones on my breasts because they were still red, he told me it was $4000 to have four sessions of laser removal... Mum is still paying off our house so she said no for the moment.. Do you guys know of anything cheaper that would get rid of them? He didn't prescribe me anything either? Is there anything you can take cos these reddy ones don't seem to be fading in a hurry
