I am writing this because I read some posts from women who are having a hard time removing stretch marks. I too deal with the dreaded "FREDDY KRUGAR" Scarring LOL...

Stretch marks are a part of life. You can get rid of them to a certain point though (80-90%). You have to break up the scar tissue and signal the skin to fill in. You can only do this by injuring the Dermis. During this time you have to use a lot of Peptide creams. Rosehip is good too.

So basically the 2 choices are Laser (Very Expensive), or needling. Needling is either done by a tattoo artist or using a Skin Roller. Easy to find on EBAY. A little pricy but they also have a kit there. Just search under "Scar, Stretch Mark Reducer" They also bring up some creams. Not sure which ones work. I had luck with STRIPEPTIN in combination with the roller. I also heard some good stuff about the STRIVECTIN. Peptides are good too when used with a roller. Search GHK-cu (Copper Peptide).

Hmmmm what else can I suggest. Daily exfoliating. My stretch marks are barely noticeable now. The answer is easy. Skin rejuvenation. Inside out. 1000 mg Vitamin C Daily. Drink lots of water. Eat Brocolli and Cauliflower and Liver, as these contain Copper. Vitamin A supplements, and drink milk (If you can). :D

Just wondering what size of roller did you use and how often?

Thank you

I have stretch marks too but its barely noticeable now.

I am also taking 1000mg of vitamin C with rosehips. And I am glad to know that it can somehow help from banishing my stretch marks aside from keeping my colds away.

for stretch marks, first use an exfoliant, then emuscar. It helped mine so they are hardly noticeable.

Skin needling might be helpful for stretchmarks. See smartskincare.com/treatments/noninvasive/skin-needling.html

Strivectin helped my stretch marks somewhat. Even better is Elastin Advanced Stretch Mark Therapy by Robelyn Labs. My marks are over 5 years old. I started using Elastin less than a year ago and it has made them unnoticeable any more. I gave it to my brother to try who got stretch marks after losing weight, and he has gotten nice improvements in two months.

Thanks for your great reply HITHERE.

You provided two solutions Laser or needling. But I know laser is very expensive and I can't afford that. I also don't want to needle my body!

You also said something about skin rejuvenation. I am interested in this part. I have heard from a friend that dermrejuve.com are selling rejuvenation serum at a cheap price (Only $18.95). Don't believe me? Check yourself : dermrejuve.com/rejuvenation-serum/

I never used their serums. Should I use that product? What do you suggest?

Starch marks occur due to many reasons. And it doesn't look good. So it is important to reduce that marks. In the market, there are creams and oils regarding this. So you can apply that on your starch mark.

I used Dermelastic Serum twice a day right before my belly started to grow up until I had baby. No stretch marks! I don't believe it's just genetics, prevention is important! I have an identical twin sister and our babies were the exact same size but she got stretch marks and I did not!

Stretch marks are long, narrow streaks or stripes that occur when the skin is stretched too quickly. Pregnancy, puberty, and rapid weight gain can all cause stretch marks. There is a number of topical creams and ointments for reducing the appearance of stretch marks.
