I was having problem with my stretch mark. I was trying to loose my weight lately, I was successful but my skin on my belly still sag because of stretch marks that i got for my pregnancies... Is there any effective cream or solution that i can use to bring back my old belly skin... I mean products that not only hides the marks but also skin renewal... Is there any products in the market like that?

I tried carboxy therapy. The deep and wrinkled look of my stretch marks became less visible. I also went through 5 sessions and yet there are definite improvements on the little stretch marks that I have below my navel. The deep and wrinkled marks became shallow and smoother. They are not totally erased yet though since I only had 5 sessions. According to the dermatologist, my marks are only minimal and there are cases that are much worse than mine. Along with the carboxy therapy, I was given a tretinoin soap that I have to use twice a day and a collagen lotion to apply after showering. I also drank 500mg of vitamin C, 250 mg vitamin E and collagen drink three times a day to aid in the repairing of the broken tissues of the marks. You can read about my carboxy therapy experience here http://magickalmuse.blogspot.com/2011/11/for-vanitys-sake.html. I stopped getting the treatments because I think I might be pregnant now, but that's another story. =)

Cocoa Butter or Shea Butter is supposed to be good for getting rid of stretch marks and stuff liek that so I would suggest trying that. I've been rarely using some avon product to get rid of stretch marks but it hardly works. Maybe Toning your abs and stomach would help to (Exercise not a toner haha).

In some dermatological/ cosmetic clinics nowadays, they offer stretch mark removal procedures that require a few sessions for all the marks to be totally removed. I think these procedures are non-invasive so there's nothing to be afraid of. The downside though is that most of these are quite expensive in just one session. So if you really want your stretch marks removed, better consult a dermatologist/cosmetic surgeon to help you out. As with the creams, I think some creams are used mainly to prevent stretch marks and not to remove them. If you use them to try to remove such marks, they usually lighten the marks and that's it.
