Stretch marks can be improved
Realistic exceptions are needed prior to treating stretch marks.
New stretch marks are easier to treat than older ones. For new stretch marks (red-purple-pink), my treatment of choice is V BEAM vascular laser combined with compounded Vitamin A creams.
Old stretch marks are harder to treat- my preferred option for old, white, silvery- papery stretch marks is a combination of CO2 fractional laser, or with INFINI RF. I also use Fraxel ReStore 1550, and also lasers in the 1540 wavelength.
The truth is that stretch mark treatments are HIGHLY variable, depending on your own immune system, your skin type and the age of the stretch marks. Some get a 30% improvement, others up to 80%.
An assessment is the very first step
