Treating old White Stretch Marks

Most stretch marks that I am asked to treat are the white ones. In my first abstracts and presentations at the laser meetings (ASDS and ASLMS) I utilized mostly the pulsed dye laser and achieved approximately50-65 percent improvement in the various parameters that I was the first to describe for stretch marks. These included 1) color. 2)elasticity. 3) skin depression and 4) extent of lesions. . I have modified and improved upon the technique over the years. Presently I may use multiple lasers and some creams like Retin A and alphahydroxy acids. More information can be found at
