Does Vicks vapour rub work on stretch marks?

C02 laser for stretch marks

Thanks for your question. Topical creams are usually not effective or minimally effective. The fractional CO2 laser is a great option to treat stretch marks. This laser resurfaces and tightens the skin to help improve stretch marks. Typically patients need 4-6 treatments every 2 weeks. Please visit a board certified dermatologist in your area for an in person consultation. Best, Dr. Katz

Vicks vapor rub for stretch marks

This will not work at all. There will be no harm in trying but you can save your money. There are very few things that can help. I like to use the Infini in combination with PRP.
