Lasers for Stretch Marks
Stretch marks also called striae are actually permanent dermal scars. Use of retinoids often make them pink so that certain types of lasers can have their energy absorbed better. In my experience if stretch marks are pink 30-50% is all the maximum improvement for most. I personally prefer the Diolite or Tuneable Dye laser very helpful for this problem.
