Laser therapy can be helpful in stimulating collagen formation and making the stretch marks less depressed. It can take 4-6 treatments for patients to see results and on average they see a 50% improvement. We use the pulsed dye laser and the V-beam laser in our practice with good success. We also prepare the skin with some topical treatments to maximize results.
