I have heard of some products, but cant think of them off the top of my head. Have you tried to google it? Or you could talk to a chemist about it and see what they reccommend

Bio Oil.... it is fantatic!

I got a few stretchmarks when I was pregnant. Bio Oil has made them fade ALOT! It feels abit oily going on.

Hope that helps. :)

Vitamin E. and Im using Palmers. Im noticing a difference.

One thing I dont get. I get big and Im like "YEAH no stretch marks" then I start losing the weight and BAM there they are. Im losing weight and they are ALL over.

i've got loads of stretchies! i don't believe there is a cure to date, they're essentially scars/tears under the skin, right? so it's going to have to be a magic cream to get right in there and get them to knit back together! i've been told they fade over the years. mine are a shade or two lighter than my usual skin tone... i noticed a slight difference using a hemp oil based body soap. i'm just going to make a point of moisturising my skin.

whoever does find a 'cure' is going to be very wealthy and happy indeed!! :D

btw, when you google, if you come across some site like 'stretchmarkcure' don't fall for it. it's the biggest rip off scan ever. they just recommend exfoliation and moisturising, not worth the $ to be told imo!

good luck

They aren't what you'd call "removable" unfortunately. It's stretched skin, so they'll always be there...but they fade and things like Bio Oil (my sister in law uses this and it's helped her heaps) and Cocoa Butter (older sister used it when she was preggers - I'm actually allergic) help them to fade. They'll never fully dissapear though :(

They're not only caused by gaining weight quickly. They can also be caused by losing weight quickly...not giving your skin time to adjust. I asked my mum the same question...sucks.
