I too agree lemon juice, aloe vera, castor oil, egg are good for stretch marks but we cannot get the expected results. I tried these many times and after that I go with Dermalmd and that cream gave me the expected results.

Last few days I didn't sleep properly due to worry of my pregnancy stretch marks. I have two friends that saw good results with Dermelastic serum just about a couple of weeks. That forces me to try with Dermelastic serum. For a few days I was a bit unhappy with that smell and color of that serum. But after 3 weeks, I am happy with the final result I got. You should give it a try!

Hi I have used TriLastin for my stretch marks after pregnancy. Though the dark marks of the scars did fade a little I wasted a little amount of time on other scar creams until my mom referred the Invincible Scars Advanced scar treatment cream. I have also used Mederma in the past but believe me if you are real serious you should try this cream once. I also referred it for my daughter's acne scars. Is working well.

I used every oil and cream there was every day, three times a day, during my pregnancy and my stretch marks are awful! They're deep and actually painful. They're so bad that my body looks as if it was cut badly and sewn back together. I wouldn't waste the money on creams.

I've tried every one of the creams -- nothing helped. I'm very tall, and I did bodybuilding when I was 19 and up that ruined my body. I had stretch marks everywhere -- deep ones. But not anymore. I've started a treatment at a cosmetic laser center. What they started doing is chemical peels – yes, the same thing they do for faces. I was skeptical, but I wanted to try it. So far, I've done my underarms, and I have no stretch marks left! This procedure is about $150 a session. I had five sessions done on my underarms! After the third one, it was gone70%. Ladies -- try it! I'm getting the rest of my body done after I save up some money. I'm so much more confident!

I have used Belli Stretchmark Minimizing Cream and their Belli Elasticity Oil. Both worked well!

I'm an 18 year old been doing bodybuilding for the last 2 years. I have stretch marks on my thighs, triceps/biceps, and on my shoulders - had them for a while. I've used bio oil, cocoa butter and some vitamin E cream but nothing seemed too help.
