Stretch Marks on Breasts - Best Treatment?

I got stretch marks about 15 years ago on my breasts. Is there any laser treatment that is safe and effective for the breast area?

Successful treatment of stretch marks with laser

I use selective fractional laser skin resurfacing for stretch mark skin. You may consider this therapy for skin that has visible stretch marks.

No good treatments for stretch marks

There aren't any good treatments for stretch marks at this time. Most are completely ineffective or very disappointing. If stretch marks are a different color than your skin, the color may be addressed with lasers or IPL. Some stretch marks are red or even purple. Often, this discoloration can be reduced with lasers or IPL so that the color of the stretch mark better matches your regular skin color. This will not remove the stretch mark; it will simply make it blend in better.
