Stretch marks can be improved but not removed permanently

Not all stretch marks will respond to treatment, however in some individuals, the improvement after treatments can be dramatic.  If the stretch marks are still red, starting with a retinoid cream applied to the stretch marks every night may be very helpful.  There are other treatments like pulse dye laser, fractional laser by itself or in combination with skin tightening.

With these treatments, the stretch marks can become thinner and less red, improving their appearance.

There are a number of approaches.  I recommend that you consult with a board certified dermatologist with proper training and experience in treating stretch marks.
