Stretch marks are a common problem but we don't have anything that does significant to improve them at this time. Many, many laser treatments may make a 20% improvement in them after 1-2 yrs and many thousands of dollars later but TCA peels probably are not a good choice. Sincerely,

You do not want to do a TCA peel with your dark skin. It will not help stretch marks and may give you permanent uneven pigment.
