Hi Anonymous,

I hate to the bearer of bad news when it comes to stretch marks, because I know that they are the one thing (other than baby weight) that we so badly want to get rid of after our pregnancies. The good news is that they will eventually fade over time, and with cocoa butter or Mederma you can sort of help this process out. The stretch marks that are now red or purple in color will change to white or as colorless as possible and not be as obvious as they are right now.

The not so great news is that there really is no one product out there that will eliminate the stretch marks completely. No matter how much some companies claim that they will leave your skin as smooth as it was before you were pregnant, it is just not possible to completely clear up the stretch marks. 

Sorry I couldn't give you the answer you were hoping for.

Best Wishes,
