Not possible, sorry. Despite all the myths of magic creams etc. Stretch marks are caused by damaged collagen in the skin, over time they will fade but they will never vanish. They are also super common so don't let them bother you. Loads of people, male and female,  have them.

So would taking vitamin E orally help them fade and make them less noticeable?

What David has said is bang on the money...

I was a skinny little runt at 12 year old and all of a sudden large red scars appeared full length of my stomach as I stretched...few months my stomach looked worse than any pregant women...Just from stretching..

Shyness, embarrasment you name it for years along with weight gain, depression etc

It led me to try everything and anything and not a thing works, over time they go white some say duller with a tan but we all know dangers to over tanning...

Best cure for them is to say f..k it I am who I am and f..k anyone else!  Be proud...moee info than you needed but other may need it...as said its common.

Try bio oil. I've noticed a significant difference in my skin. I exfoliate in the night when I have time and then I put that on. Absorbs easily and smells good.

Coconut oil will moisturize the skin and help so that new ones don't happen. As long as your skin stays moisturized stretch marks are less likely to happen.

If u already have it, theres no way u can get rid of it but u can always apply 'palmers' on areas prone to stretch marks while its still early to prevent having more.
