hm... not really sure what you can do because stretch marks is a scar tissue (are different than undamaged skin cells)
you can try 'bio oil' -- it's a little orangey-bottle.
I've used it on scars (stretch, surgery etc) but I keep forgetting so I don't use it too regularly; therefore, have no results to tell you, lol
my cousins have used it too, so no harm in trying. just but a little on every day -- just be careful 'cause it will seep into your clothes
it takes a LONG time to work though -- as would anything else

Stretch marks won't ever go away completely.

There are sooooOooOoO many creams/bottled stuff thats 'supposed' to help reduce the appearance, but I've yet to hear of one that has any real positive effect at doing so.

Tanning/sun will help to reduce the appearance cosmetically (they will not disappear) and I've seen this also in family I have over living in sunny places :3

Of course exercise to 'un-stretch' the skin will always help, and is a way of preventing them as well.
