Lazer treatment, or if they're on your stomach, a tummy tuck.
Seriously, stretch marks are stretched skin that has scarred. No cream or "magic potion" is going to make them go away.
I've had 3 babies, and a few stretch marks, and found that tanning has made them fade a little. But don't start tanning to get rid of them when they're still fresh, it'll only make them worse!

It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.

I know cream won't actually make them go away, but I thought I read somewhere, or had a friend mention, that the cream can make them less visible or something? I don't know.

I have had scars that weren't too deep eventually fade too...... ??

Thank you to those that recommended different creams; I appreciate it!! :sunshine:

I bought a tube of generic (no name) scar treatment cream for about $25 - it reduced the appearance of scars I had. I thought I would give it a try on years old stretch marks and it actually made them more silvery/white than the reddish/purple they were. Dunno if it would work on everyone, but it might be worth a shot. Other than that, time is pretty much the only thing that is going to make them fade.

I think that your post is way off topic, and would suggest that you move your comments elsewhere.
One would think that if the other posters in this thread are ignoring you, you would consider that a HINT!

I don't take hints very well. And I do think I made a valuable suggestion to the problem.
