    Stretch Marks

    Hello all,

    Any ideas of how to get rid/decrease the appearance of stretch marks gained from a cycle?

    Thanks.

    Bio oil. Takes 6 to 12 months to notice results.

    Prevention is crucial, once they show up they're not going away. There are proven laser treatments out there if you're really self conscious about them. In my experience creams don't really work so I just accept them now.

    How do you prevent stretch marks from lifting?

    Grow slowly over time...really there's no way to avoid them when we cycle steroids (If you're genetically inclined towards stretch marks, some are not) I went from 140 to 183 over the course of 5 years are so, not a single stretch mark. First cycle and only 8 weeks later and I had stretch marks running down my delts, lower lats and lower pecs. see ottomadox's post for ways to reduce their appearance as the come in.

    Yep i have some from previously being a fat fella. Down now from 30% to below 17%(last measurement 2 weeks ago) will jump on cycle when i hit 15% then after thats all done rewarding myself with lower torso tattoo to cover up. Not a big deal to me(tattoos) as i already have arms back hands etc covered but the only way to make the stretch marks not visiable.

    Keep the lotion on the skin to avoid stretch marks.
