    Flawless has been reformulated for the second time, and the second version was pretty damn awesome, so the third one (and yes, Nutra has some) should be wicked. Or you could stack it with Eviscerate, applying the Flawless atop it, and that will help a lot.

    as mentioned, flawless v2 is available at the planet if you check the flawless skin couture company link, which, under genomyx, will be the exclusive skin care line for all of matt's reformulations and re-releases...

    plenty more to come as well.

    there comes a point where creams won't do anything. some stretchmarks are permanent.

    Please elaborate. Will this stack reduce the striae by reduction and subq fat and shrinking the marks, or stop new one from forming or simply fade the striae?? Details are very helpful. Thanks in advance.

    yea, nothing i've been able to do seems to get rid of the stretch marks around my shoulder/pec and glute area.

    getting a tan helps a little I believe.

    Especially if that is a video of you almost breaking 7 bills on the DL.... if that is the case, you can probably start to expect the stretch marks on your toes eventually.

    Tanning is interesting when it comes to stretch marks. Acutely, the light can decrease, in theory, any underlying inflammation that may be contributing to the stretch marks. It may also possibly even out the hyperpigmentation that some striae/stretch marks show. However....I wouldn't recommend tanning because you are trading evening out hyperpigmentation temporarily for photodamage, collagen degeneration and increased risk of skin cancer.

    The bottom line is that some people are unfortunately predisposed. It could be worse - one could be develping keloids :-(

    Cheers!

    Someone needs a lesson in manners and also in making sure they have the FACTS before spouting sh*y out of their arse. If you are not going to contribute something RELEVANT to the conversation, then don't enter it, period! Go troll elsewhere, because it's NOT wanted here!

    I have stretch marks from the many children I've had as well.......

    May I chime in?

    They are like scars marking you as a warrior in the gym (except for the ones around your belly which mark you as a warrior with the Doritos or a Warrioress of child birth)

    I am a warrior, hear me roar.

    If your stretch marks are darker to begin with, tanning will lead to further hyperpigmentation. Some of us either get postinflammatory hyper or hypopigmentation. Either way, it is a pain to deal with. Sometimes lightening creams such as Triluma help.

    Cheers.
