Several years ago I gained a substantial amount of weight, and developed light stretch marks, now roughly a year after losing most of it, they have not faded and gotten worse (darker, deeper) even after using cocoa butter regularly. What can I do?

In brief: Cosmetic

unfortunately nothing, the stretch marks stay.
..you can see a dermatologist and they may recommend cosmetic procedures.

In brief: Stretch marks

I'm not sure that there is any treatment for these, but perhaps a plastic surgeon could evaluate and advise you about available options.
