The pros get them too but it's just harder to see, combination of the tanning they do and measures taken.
Can't really get rid of them as it's scar tissue, but prevent em with this

if you can catch them while they're pink you have a chance to really reduce their appearance but when they're a darker colour then i'm afraid you have them for life my friend

Once you get them you are stuck w/ them. You will notice they are less aparent during the months you are tanner. Being tan is the only thing I have noticed that actually helps. But be careful b/c when they are brand new you do not want to spend as much time in the sun. You could potentially darken them for good. It is the same principle w/ regular scars, to much sun early on can actually make them worse. They will get lighter over time and I have yet to come accross anything that actually protects you from getting them or gets rid of them. Its genetic, thats why some bodybuilders dont get them at all and others are littered with them.

I got them from growing and from lifting. the ones on my biceps suck, but ah well. It comes from your skin not bieng hydrated enough or its elasticity bieng low. I probably have both. Put cocoa butter on before you lift, and try to stay hydrated.

YOU CAN NOT GET RID OF STRETCH MARKS. The skin is composed of several derm layers, up to 10 in some places, and it is in these subcutaneous tissues that stretch marks are formed and therefor no topical cream can even penetrate deep enough to target them. From wikipedia "Only one randomised controlled study has been published which claimed to test whether oils or creams prevent the development of stretchmarks. This study found a daily application of a cream (Trofolastin) containing Centella asiatica extract, vitamin E, and collagen-elastin hydrolysates was associated with fewer stretch marks" Though cocoa butter is an effective moisturizer, no research studies have shown its ability to either prevent stretchmarks, or to reduce their appearance once a stretchmark has already formed.
