Stretch Mark Therapy
I have alot of these things on me. Some old faded ones on my stomach, and sides from gaining weight. I have new ones from muscle growth under my arm pits, and on the lats. Also on the sides of my chest. They suck. I've been using vitamin E and scrub them everyday to elicit a collagen response from the body.
Anyways I'm looking for some advice. I'm not going to accept anyone saying "there is nothing you can do, you're screwed." There is always something you can do. I have seen laser treatments that fade them and reduce their depth. I have even seen that emu oil is sucessfully in healing them to some degree.
Can anyone else share any insight on these things?

have you considered RPN's java lather soap?
Goat's milk, shea butter, olive oil, 100% Arabica Coffee, Sesamin, Cissus Quadrangularis, Latte, Honey, and Almond Fragrance.

How did you use it that quickly?
Try adding it to a loofah or spongee to make it last longer.
We're getting some pretty good B&A pictures from testers so far, give it another go.. depending on when you bought it, the new bars should be a bit bigger now.

i have some on the inner part of my bicep. I'd like to get some type of laser treatment to atleast reduce them. Probably several dermabrasions wouldn't hurt either.

I have them in the following areas:
countless faded ones on biceps.
a few behind triceps
6 on each side of stomach, very faded.
6 on the sides
1 long one going up the side
many little deep ones under the arm pit area and lat
a few big red ones on the sides of chest
a few on the back of lats
So yeah, I'm not whinning about 1 little one on my biceps, I have alot, and I don't think some cream is going to help me.

Surgery is really the only way to effectively do something about them. IMO, all the topical creams/over the counter stuff is junk.

Laser therapy supposedly gets rid of the depth, and re-pigments close to 75%.

Yeah that sound about right. It seems to help more in the fading of the color (red marks), vs. the actual stretch mark. I don't have any red stretch marks, mine are all pale.

We have a different supplier and the soap is much harder now. We also sent Sam the jumbo bars, however they will be at a higher price.

So does the soap actually work or is it just bogus ?

Yes the soap actually works. We have good before and after pics at bb.com. there are also logs over here.

Laser treatment. It stimulates collagen re-synthesis subdermal.

Here's a good article about the options for reducing stretch marks.
