What Should I Do About my Butt/stretchmarks?

Okay... I always want to ask about this...I have stretch marks on the side of my buttocks, my skin is pretty light, but my butt has been always been a littel darker, so stretch marks are more noticeable. What should I do? I know that chemical peels do not work for stretch marks but I still want to do some to get rid of the older skin cells and maybe have a better appearance on that area? Any suggestions on what I can do? I just don't like the skin tone on my butt...

Combination therapies may help stretch marks

At Boris Cosmetic we have developed a stretchmark program that has had some  impressive results involving a combination of therapies. Not all therapies can be used on all skin types, as types vary and must be carefully evaluated by a qualified professional. Effective therapies include a combination of Vi peels, microdermabrasion, lasers that reduce redness, and lasers that even the skin tones so that the stretch marks are less visible. A series of treatments may be needed to get optimal results.

Lasers may help for stretch marks

Hi, this is such a common concern we hear about. There is some evidence that these stretch marks improved with laser treatments. We can help get the red down if they are red, and also help blend the stretch marks a little more. I would recommend seeing a board certified dermatologist with expertise in lasers, as these technologies were developed and perfected by dermatologists. Good luck.
