Which is more effective for stretch mark removal; micro-needle or laser?

Stretch Mark Treatment
I have used a Derpmapen, Fraxel, Pulsed Dye Laser and PRP on my patients. I have noticed that the combination of these treatments at the same time yields the best results, because these modalities treat the skin differently.
In general: Pulsed Dye Lasers will treat redness in a stretch mark. Fraxel or resurfacing lasers uses laser energy to stimulate collagen formation to improve the tone and texture. Dermapen or micro needling creates micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis to superficially improve the tone and texture. PRP or platelet rich plasma will expedite healing and generate new collagen growth.
It is best to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist with plenty of experience treating stretch marks.
