What to Realistically Expect from Fraxel on Stretch Marks?

Fraxel restore is, in my opinion, the best option for silvery white striae. When they are red, there are more options. It will, however, take several sessions (at least 5). I always combine with retinoids between sessions. And NO TANNING! UV light further breaks down the collagen and elastin.
