Lots of women have them, and every woman wants to get rid of them. Is it possible?
Unfortunately, when it comes to stretch marks, the news is bleak. The truth is that many women will develop stretch marks at some point in their life and once developed, they are nearly impossible to erase. Why do we get them? They happen during periods of growth, when the skin stretches and loses elasticity and collagen -- and though many products claim to help, very few if any, actually do (no wonder all that cocoa butter we spread on our bellies while pregnant didn't work!) We talked to Dr. Saul at Beverly Hills Dermatology to find out the facts -- AND fixers about these pesty suckers. The truth ... is ugly.-Though they may appear dark at first, stretch marks may eventually fade to a lighter color, depending on how your skin heals.
