I have had good results with a cream called Vanish by a company called SkinAgain. Here's the link -->http://skinagain.com/product/vanish

It's a natural product. I get promo codes from their FB and Instagram to help me save some money.

Yes, cocoa butter is an appealing product because of its natural nature. In fact, it is a saturated fat taken from the cocoa bean and then utilized to make chocolate. Still, it can also be used as an ingredient in topical creams and medications. In truth, the smooth consistency and wonderful smell of cocoa butter make it a luxurious body cream. Some doctors even recommend cocoa butter to their pregnant patients to help ward off stretch marks. Even so, I am not certain if objective data supports its ability to keep stretch marks away. However, the skin will most certainly be softer.

I'm a big fan of cocoa butter. All natural and has no negative effects, even if it doesn't end up helping the stretch marks. I'd recommend using it just for smooth luxerious skin, and it has the added benefit of hopefully preventing future stretch marks. Fingers crossed!

I also read/heard about carboxytherapy, and I am excited. In fact, I saw some before and after pictures, and the results were nothing short of amazing! It seems this therapy is suitable for scars, stretch marks, loose skin, and cellulite. I believe some doctors even use it for under eye darkness and facial fat, but that seems too extreme for me. Still, the stretch marks photos were great. Gosh, I wish I could find a practitioner in my area.

Perhaps you cannot completely rid yourself of stretch marks that are already there (short of lasers), but you can make the marks less visible. I agree with Maria, cocoa butter is wonderful. Vitamin E, palm oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, lotions rich in certain vitamins (like C and E), are also great choices. There is a relatively new procedure called Carboxytherapy that supposedly diminishes newer and older stretch marks. It involves injecting small amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) just under the skin. Truthfully, the before and after photos are impressive. However, I am not fond of needles, so that is the barrier for me.

I'm afraid there's not much you can do once stretch marks have already settled. Moisturizer, drinking a lot of water, light exercise, and healthy eating can all help because they keep the skin healthy and better capable of healing itself, but few treatments short of laser resurfacing have show significant effectiveness. Good luck, though! If you are going to use moisturizer, I recommend cocoa butter. It's all natural, will help prevent you from getting future stretch marks even if it doesn't erase the current ones, and is good for your skin regardless.
