Mature stretch marks are difficult to treat, particularly on an ethnic person because of the risks with laser of hyperpigmentation. It will help, but to the degree you desire, I don't know. You will also need at least 5 treatments, maybe 10. A new technology called the Infini by Lutronic might be promising for this and time will tell. Steve Weiner, MD, Destin, Florida.

Fraxel For Ethnic Skin Stretch Marks
Yes, Fraxel can help blend in white stretch marks and make them less noticeable. However, it's important to understand that stretch marks cannot be fully erased, they can only be improved. Ethnic skin tends to temporarily darken for 3 to 6 months post Fraxel treatments.
