What do I do about red stretchmarks; lasers, creams, wrappings?

First question: will faded stretchmarks with Vbeam still become a scar or not, or if there will still be a scar, will it be smaller compared to if I don't use Vbeam at all?

Second question: a cream with vitamin K can fade (even optically eliminate) broken capillaries(on face),can it do the same with the red stretch marks?

Third question: are there good non-invasive methods to improve appear. of red marks besides wrappings or should I end up trying some collagen injections? Can high cholesterol be a contraindication to laser?

Removal of Red Stetch Marks by 1540 Erbium Laser is the most effective treatment

Creams, injections, wraps and most lasers are ineffective in treating Stretch Marks.The only effective treatment I have ever found to improve Stretch Marks is the 1540Fractional Non ablative laser. Fortunately red or pink stretch marks respond the best to the 1540 laser trreatment.
