Does it Work? - Terrible, TERRIBLE, terrible stretchmarks

Okay, now that I have your attention. I haven't posted on the boards for a while because I have been so frustrated with my weight loss- stalled for like 7 months or more, but that is another rant in another thread.

Anyhow, I just got my first order of Trilastin SR in today. I have BAD stretchmarks and am hoping that this will tame a few.

Has anyone ever tried this product before?
What were your results?
Anyone currently using it?

I will post updates on my results (or lack thereof) for people who are interested. I will post these updates in this thread.

I would like if others could share their experiences here as well.

Would love to hear how it works for you. I have horrible horrible stretch marks over my stomach from two pregnancies. My battle wounds as I call them, hehe.

Supposedly, red light therapy helps with stretch marks. I posted in 100 lb forum to see if anyone had experience (no responses yet). Its fairly cheap though - a lot of tanning salons now have red light therapy beds and its supposed to be good for skin tone and healing. I can find legitamate testimonials from people that it makes their skin look better - but none about stretch marks. That said - its cheap enough in my area (about thirty dollars) a month, that I think I'll give it a try to see if it works.

I've never had a child and have horrible white stretch marks all over my stomach, I recently bought bio oil and have been applying it twice a day religiously, let's hope it helps.

Please let me know how it works for you, maybe I'll give it a shot xo

Has anyone had any luck in any way with older stretch marks? I don't know where I've heard it/read it, but I thought once stretch marks go white, they're done for, there's nothing that can be done.

My stretchmarks are fairly old. I'm not even sure when I accrued them. The ones on my belly, I'm not as worried about, but I'm more conscious of the ones on my upper arms and surprisingly on my knees (sneaky buggers, I don't know when they crept up on me), but they're all white.

I can accept them if I have no other choice, but I don't want to accept them and realize I could've still acted on them, ya know?

Bumping this thread as I'm curious if anyone has used it with results

Never heard of that product. Any results? What are the side effects? I use a defining gel made by a company called It Works for my stretch marks. I had deep, pinkish purple stretch marks before I started using it. Now they have almost completely invisible. Obviously the skin is still scarred, but the scar is not as visible and when I look in the mirror I actually see a normal looking tummy.

Would like to hear if anyone got some significant results by using this.
Sounds promising.

Would be nice if something worked. Sometimes I feel like one big stretchmark.
