Well stretch marks are actually scars that occur in the dermis layer of the skin so as of now there isn't anything that can perminently remove them but there are several lotions out there that can diminish their appearance. Another thing you could try is laser therapy which to me is the most effective procedure out there right now but it's a little expensive. The important thing here is your health and being at a healthy weight if very important. Best wishes BB
