I need help with my stretch marks. What's my best option? (Photo)

Hello there, I am a 23 year old male and I am looking to get some advice for my ugly stretch marks. I got them from a sudden weight gain due to a medical condition and I have them for almost 2 years now. I have used creams like Mederma and Cocoa Butter but they dont seem to work. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you!

Stretch mark treatment

Unfortunately, stretch marks are hard to treat. The available options include: Infini, microneedling, PRP, laser resurfacing. Multiple treatments in the norm and incomplete resolution is best you can hope for.

Stretch marks treatment

Thank you for your question.  Although treating stretch marks can be challenging, one good option is microneedling.  It has very little down time compared to lasers and is cheaper.  Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.  Good luck!

Stretch Marks -- Microneedling/PRP, Laser, Skin Care/Peels, Sculptra Injections

For stretch marks, I suggest a combination approach with microneedling/PRP, skin care, peels and lasers. Sculptra can fill out indentations. Please see an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
