I've tried all creams to get rid of my stretchmarks and nothing seems to work. I'm really considering laser, has anybody tried it? results?

How bad are they; what colour, how deep, how prevalent, how long have you had them?

My experience has been that with the newer marks, you can have some sucess with lasers, but the treatments are expensive and you need a series of 5-6 to see any results at all. If the stretchmarks are older and whitish then there is not really much out there, unfortunately. I have heard some woman have had limited sucess using mederma, have you tried that?

I'm using Helichrysum oil on my stretch marks. I mix it with jojoba oil and will try mixing it with argan or camellia or both when I receive them. I think Helichrysum is amazing. It is the first thing I tried (and trust me! I tried a lot of things including Strivectin SD) that I feel it would work for me. Maybe you should give this a try. You can buy a small size from Nanda Oils. I did, but then it was not enough, so I bought it on Ebay. I haven't received my new Helichrysum on ebay yet, but if you want I can email you what I think of the ebay one after I got it.

Mederma did nothing for me. I still have half a tube of it in my bathroom.

Yours sound just like mine. I took pics after a few days of using helichrysum and will take more pics when I've used it for a month or so. I'll share my results with EDS members. I think this oil is awesome. Are they on your tummy?
