you can buy some over the counter cream at a drug store. Ive been using it for a little bit and seems to be helping some.

Lulz, I need to do this. £6k cost though, damn my former fat ass/gut. When I get into a push up/plank position it looks like a ball bag hanging from my stomach.

OP, some creams work reasonably well, the Palmers one with cocoa butter helped my with arm ones some, not so much the 'mini-tear's' that I have in the worst area's. If you have them, then your pretty stuck from what i've been told by Dr's.

How have these marks come about? A friend of mine got them from a growth spurt when he was about 14, when he grew taller quickly.
