What about Strivectin? Has anyone tried it?

If it really works I might save money for it but I don't want to buy something that doesn't really work.

The Cure.... if you have the money
I may have found the cure to stretch marks: semi-permanent tattooing. I went to the Body Beautiful exhibition a while back at the London Olympia (a sort of trade fair where surgeons and cosmetic people sell their wares to desperate women) and I was looking through the books of one company and there was a scar (which looked just like a stretch mark) which they had completely disguised. I asked if they could do stretch marks and they looked at mine and said yes (I have white lines in darker skin. They are not bumpy, it is just a visial thing. They will only do it if the stretch mark doesn't look too taut -if it looks like it is going to burst, then they wont put a needle in it otherwise it will burst and you will have open woulds EEK!) Anyway they quoted me 250 per session and a maximum (she was like I am going to quote you the maximum so that you aren't surprised half way through the procedure) of 10 sessions. That is 2500 which is a lot of money but at least there is hope.

Hope that gave someone hope

Palmer's has a great range of creams and moisturisers. They also have that stretch mark cream for pregnancy but I still use it even though I'm not.

I think the key to losing or at least decreasing the appearance of stretch marks is to exfoliate daily with those natural exfoliating brushes, moisturise straight after showering/bathing with a good moisturiser - I think those with shea butter are the best - and finally, stay fit!! Just a brisk walk in the morning for half an hour would do wonders!!

^ Using creams heals the stretch mark faster surely making them more white? Not good on my tanned skin!

well..i forget wat its called..but i think its just ..entitled Retin -A... but yea...i went to my dermotologist ..and she perscribed me Retin-A cream... and... usuually put that on at night...and put vitamin E pure oil during the morning... its quite effective..my old stretch marks are gone..but... this year... i entered university..and gained like 10 pounds... so... new stretch marks do appear..therefore i'm guessing..these things dont prevent stretch marks

I had some from growth spurts when I was younger. What halped them fade, take away the purple tinge, was Cocobutter. Apply that daily or so and you'll see some good results.

well...cocobutter fades those purple lines...but the thing is...if u waited long enough... those lines would fade regardless if you put cocobutter on them or not...what you really want...is them to fade and shrink!... i tried using cocobutter...but it doesn't help for me....my really shrunk when i used retin a at night..and vitamine E in the morning...good luck guys.
