So thats what stretch amrks are.
Well I got them then on my outer thighs near my buttocks.
I have heard that stretch marks coome with age and or pregnancy.
I am 27 almost 28 so I am not really old to get stretch marks so why do i have them.
I have had them for many many years ,back when I was in my late teens and I have always been skinny so I don't understand How i am aflicted with them?

I've got a few on my lower back and some more on my buttocks. I got them when I was 14(I'm 22 now) 'cause I went from 5 feet to 6' 2" in just 3 months.
I think there's a way to get rid of them. I saw a report on FOX news about a way to get rid of them with some laser or something, unfortunately I didn't see the whole thing so I can't recall names. But I guess a quick search on Google should give you answers.

1. for around 4 months, I did weekly 40% glycolic peels for 15-20 minutes (for some reason I can handle a long time for glycolic on my stomach but 5 minutes on my face causes burns - maybe coz the skin is ) - then daily I would apply the skin biologys copper peptides tri reduction P&R daily (I hate the smell and colour!) - for that, maybe I got 20-25% improvement.
2. I then had a series of 10-12 (can't remember) microdermabrasion sessions on them - spaced 7-10 days apart ... and also massaged my stomach with olive oil every day and that made an extra 20-25% improvement (kind of expensive)
So, overall, I had maybe 45% improvements from the above
3. At present I am treating as follows: (he he... new plan!!!!)
*TCA complex - 2 swipes in a day, done every 1-2 weeks
*Camellia oil massaged in twice a day (meant to be good for stretchmarks)
* papaya soap as a body exfoliator daily
I am seeing improvements from the above too.
How did I get these damned stretch marks? I had twins 10 years ago and went right through to 40 weeks ... so you can imagine the size my stomach blew out to (and I was skinny to start with).

In fact, I was still driving around, doing serious shopping and going very strong until the day my doc decided that I should be induced! I think I could've gone on to 42 weeks quite easily coz prior to getting pregnant, I was a fitness fanatic. My only regret are the stretch marks, which only started at around 34 weeks (which is the normal expectancy for twin birth).
