    Stretch Marks?

    So ive had these stretch marks for about 3 years now located where my arm connects with my chest
    I believe a decent amount of guys get these marks in a similar place that work out regularly, and im pretty sure thats where i got them from.
    Ive heard of cocoa butter, and i was reading about it and it says it prevents stretch marks, so i wasnt sure if it actually removes them.
    Also a bottle of the stuff only costs $5, and most things that cost $5 dont work well :tongue:

    so any recommendations?

    Sorry dude but I don't think anything removes them.

    You might be able to fade them a little with bio oil or something, but once they are there they are there to stay.

    Vit E oil almost totally removed a large 3rd degree burn scar from my chest.

    I have horizontal stretch marks on my lower back from when I had about a 6 inch growth spurt over about a 4 month period.

    After they have whitened with scar tissue, they can be minimized by well-hydrated skin... but only laser surgery can completely remove them (and this isn't a 100% guarantee).

    Make sure you've got well-hydrated skin before you start bulking up next time. I learned the hard way as well.

    You get work out like crazy and get really buff so that no-one would notice.

    I've got them in the same spot on my arms. It comes from working out. I find they fade after a while but they never really go away.

    Or, you could use vitamin E oil.

    Even I, the epitome of skinny, have these stretch lines.

    Because you don't use vitamin E oil.

    laser removal...prevention is key and can be done with vit e oil or cocoa butter. Otherwise, live with em like the rest of us. :grin:

    Pffft, Vitamin E oil wouldn't do anything. No one here has had any relevent experience to show that it would.

    I read on a piece of paper (that I myself wrote on) that Vitamin E oil was good for stretch marks.

    I don't know. You're on the internet. Maybe you should look it up.
