    What about the stretch mark lotion you can get at the store? I have used it before but never consecutively. I have a lot of stretch marks on my hips (hips are bigger than the rest of my body) they lighten up when I lose weight. Keep hydrated as your loosing weight and keep moisturizing.

    I have used Bio-Oil. I used it as directed and used the entire bottle. No results whatsoever.
    My stretch marks are here to stay. *Sigh*

    I think stretch marks are there forever! There are ways to lighten them up but it's the elasticity of the skin (the skin being stretched and unstretched) so it's there! It's ****s because I have TONS! And they are ugly! But even skinny people have them....Tyra Banks said when she was modeling they would just put makeup on them. LOL!

    The only way if you want a quick fixed pertaining to stretch marks is surgery. similar to veins . {laser remove}
    or if you rather a slower process by having them shrinked.

    i had some pretty bad ones on my stomach and behind my knees before I lost the first 50lbs....and now the ones that were behind my knees I can't see at all....the ones on my stomach are very very light. I even have some that are very light on my chest. I can't stand them...but they're probably only noticeable to myself. I understand them making you feel self-conscious...they do me too..

    If yours are really red they WILL fade...but as you lose weight you may get more that are red...but once your body has settled into losing weight they will fade. Be sure to use lots of cocoa butter lotion and keep moisturized and hydrated....stretch marks are caused mostly by dehydration.

    others may have a different experience, but for me....my stretch marks aren't going anywhere! the only thing that has ever helped me is tanning. they seem to fade a little, but they are still there. i don't think they are noticeable to anyone else because they become so light, except the ones on my stomach...they are there to stay.

    Default stretch marks

    If you lose weight will you lose the stretch marks too?? i have them on my inner thighs and little tiny marks on my hips. They make me so selfconcious and if i lose my weight i want to show some skin and be proud.
