    You could try Strivectin too - it's expensive, but I've heard it does diminish their appearance. A lot of people use it for lines around the eyes as well. They sell it online at Drugstore.com and I just saw it at Macy's.

      Amy beat me to it, Palmers makes the best from my experience. They also make something called "scar serum" that works well. Nothing I know completely get rids of them :o(

            Thank you ladies for all of your help!! I think I am just going to hide the little suckers for the day with the dermablend concelear cream. I am so paranoid and shallow about how the wedding pictures will turn out and I dread having those marks be prominent on my arms since it is the focus of the dress. But the derma blend will cover everything just fine. I can also use another type of dermablend with foundation for those darn dark circles that won't go away from under my eyes from 2 years of hell (oops , I mean grad school ) :)

                  I just got the WW mag and it has info on this.

                  If you have...
                  - Red/purple marks (new, had them under 6 months)
                  Try: Topical Retin-a, Microdermabrasion, Versa Pule IPL

                  If you have...
                  - White/silver marks
                  Try: Peptide Celluite creams like StretchEase, Resurfacing lasers

                    Sorry to say, but there is no easy way to get rid of stretch marks. Those creams are pretty much a marketing scam, and vitamin E cream will help lighten dark stretch marks, but once they become white it wont do anything anymore. The best option is to get laser resurfacing. I think you can get it done at a dermatologist. It is very exspensive though and they don't guarantee 100% results. Sorry that probablly wasn't what you wanted to hear, but I feel for ya! I have a belly covered in stretch marks since having my son, and I'm not to thrilled about having to show them when we go away to get married!

                      I use the cocco butter for my stretch marks that I have on my hips and back of my legs. Just a couple on my legs and it really works. I've seen results.
