In light of the recent bankruptcy filed by Isolagen whose novel technique included infusing fibroblasts into into the dermis of the stretch marks area, what is the future of stretch marks therapy now? I realize Fraxel is a somewhat effective option for individuals with white silvery stretch marks but numerous sessions are required and there is no guarantee. What is the current line of research being attempted since I do not mind waiting years until more effective technology is developed.
