I have had very good success at reducing the appearance of stretch marks with and woithout PRP.  Stretch marks are essentially a scar and not normal skin.  Nothing will make them go away, short of cutting them out.  As I tell my patients, we can do a series of treatments and usually reduce the size/ appearance by 50-70%.Good luck, Dr. Powell

I suggest a formal consultation as lasers, microneedling/PRP and skin care all do best in combination for improvement.  Best, Dr. Emer.
