    The exact underlying cause of stretchmarks is not fully known. Most pregnant women get them but some don't and nobody seems to know why. There likely is a strong hormonal factor.

     The preventative effect of a dermaroller in stretchmark formation has not yet been studied, AFAIK.

          You can try supplying vit. C to your skin and dry massage it and use skin creams that you think might be useful (I cannot comment on the efficacy of any creams) but nothing is known to be able to guarantee a stretchmark-free pregnancy. There currently is no known method to prevent stretchmarks formation in pregnancy.
