Can old stretch marks of two and half year old be removed or at least reduced?

during pregnancy i suffered from severe allergy called pemphigoid gestations. as a result i had to use powerful steroid creames given by doctors to reduce the intensity.. due to which i developed loads of strech marks on my tummy,thighs,hipps,waist etc. its very frustating n dissappointing. please suggest me creames or oils.

Unfortunately, there is no magic cream/lotion to make stretch marks go away. If anything, prescription grade retinoids may help slightly. Many patients swear by a product known as Bio-Oil but there is no science behind this.  Otherwise, I feel that only lasers, particularly the Palomar Lux 1540, can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
