After three kids stretch marks started to be a problem, I have tried many things over the years but dermelastic serum really stands out! It works! My stretch marks have started to fade and are not nearly noticeable as they once were! My white and silvery lines have faded to where you can barely see them! I think with continued use they will fade even more! I am very please with dermelastic serum and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to fade stretch marks!

I like dermelastic serum enough to buy it for the third time and third pregnancy. I gained a lot of weight in my first pregnancy and got stretch marks on my sides and legs (I didn't use this product) but my second pregnancy, I used dermelastic serum and got no new stretch marks. It could have been because I didn't gain 80 pounds like I did the first pregnancy, but either way, I didn't get any additional stretch marks… therefore I am buying dermelastic again with my third baby.

I m surprised really why all peoples shares the dermelastic reviews here.. I know dermelastic works for scar and stretch marks but other than this kind of cream and serums there are lot of home remedies to diminish the scar and marks.

I have had stretch marks since around the time I turned 14. I've been researching the best solution for these pesky marks & stumbled upon a site that suggested the use of a Dermelastic. I ordered one about 2 weeks ago & have used it about 3 times. I'm amazed at how fast I've seen results! I had dark purple stretch marks on my inner thigh & they are now significantly lighter & the depth of the marks has decreased dramatically. while I don't think that these marks will disappear all together, I do believe that consistency with the Dermelastic along with the use of other products will do the trick.

dermelastic is the best stretch mark removal cream at this price range for oily/dry skined people, keeps skin moistrizedand my stretch mark is a little more still. I am sure it will go soon.

I bought dermelastic serum to use throughout my pregnancy to reduce the risk of stretch marks. So far, over 30 weeks in and I do not have any at all. I did a lot of research on different creams and ended up getting a few to test out. Dermelastic was by far the best. It is thick and creamy, but doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy at all. When I'm in a hurry getting ready for work, I can put this serum on and it is quickly absorbed and I don't feel like I need to let it soak in before getting dressed. It was a bit pricey, but so worth the extra money. I started using it around 18 weeks and still have about 1/4 left and I use a generous amount every day. I am addicted! Highly recommend.
