Thank you for your question taryn.berriman. Stretch marks are caused by stretching of the skin that occurs when a person gains or loses weight. If stretch marks are treated sufficiently with a laser and are no longer visible, they should not return unless there is another weight gain or loss. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
