Stretch mark laser and Melarase

+1

My office employs an ablative fractional laser to improve the texture of stretch marks and tighten the skin.  I have found that pretreatment with Melarase cream is beneficial for patients to prevent discoloration.

How to improve hypopigmented stretch marks

A combination of skin tightening and fractional laser resurfacing may require several sessions to improve stretch marks but the results can often be significant.

XTRAC laser can be used to help repigment the stretch marks.
