  The best responses to treatment of stretch marks are obtained when they are treated while still fresh, but there are treatments available for stretch marks of any age.  You will see only minimal response to RetinA used by itself. Much better and in fact the best responses are seen with #microneedling with PRP, and sometimes injecting PRP in larger amounts into the stretch marks at a deeper level in addition to Microneedling. If the stretch marks are red, lasers that target hemoglobin such as GentleLase can also be employed.  All the best!  Dr. Clark
