    cocoa butter helps lighten up the marks, but won't remove it. i hardly notice it when they turn white so it doesn't bother me

    I think you can have laser surgery on them to make them less noticable.

    "Cosmetic lasers are a new method for removal of stretch marks. Unlike traditional treatments like stretch mark creams and gels, lasers are used to stimulate new collagen growth and fill the stretch mark from the bottom up. The laser energy is absorbed in the dermal layer of the skin stimulating the production of new collagen. As the new collagen thickens and plumps the skin, it fills in the stretch mark from below." - some random laser cosmetic surgery website.

    Just enjoy them!

    I don't mind the ones under my arms and stuff, but the ones on the sides of my waist (got them when i was growing in HS) are not particularly attractive.

    Dont stretch marks go away after a few months? im all worried now, seeing as ive got 2 red lines on the bottom of my ribcage, caused by the way my stomach bunches when i sit down.

    They don't go away, but at least yours will look like a 6-pack :cool:

    What you have doesn't sound like stretch marks.

    Damn.. their too small to be a 6 pack lol.. their also on top of the bottom inch of my ribcage, where fat bunches a little... is there no alternative to plastic surgery, and will they always stay red?
