hi shorty, unfortunatly, once you have stretch marks...u have them for life! they do fade though...as you noticed they start as red lines, but fade to a silvery colour...sry i couldnt give you better news. palmers cocoa b___ter does help to moisturise your skin keeping it supple, although they wont prevent you from getting the stretch marks. they are also hereditory so maybe ask your mum how bad she got stretch marks for an idea of whats to come. it is also to do with an individuals skin type. with the cream, im not sure about what the medical name is for the three layers we have, but the cream only helps the outter layer skin, its the middle layer that needs to be supple to prevent them. the best way id say is to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water...its your only key out!

Yes, as dee23 said, they are pretty much permanent though do fade and become less obvious. Be very careful of weight gain and make sure to wear a supportive bra. They are caused by the underlayers tearing from being stretched quickly. I've had them on my hips from various weight gain times and they do certainly become less noticeable, but never leave.
