I have deep about 1/2 inch wide stretch marks around my abdomen from pregnancy and want to know if the treatments available really work.
Do Stretch Mark Treatments and Creams Really Work?

Using stretch mark lasers to resurface skin
I would consider laser skin resurfacing for stretch marks prior to any type of topical stretch mark cream. I have found the lasers to work well in treatment.
Only tummy tuck can remove stretch marks below belly button
The only treatment that consistently removes stretchmarks is an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck but this only works for stretchmarks below the belly button. Some laser treatments may make the stretchmarks lighter in color and therefore less visible. Creams do nothing as far as treating stretchmarks. Topical vitamin E and A may help prevent them.
