Stretch mark treatments

Stretch marks can be treated with Vbeam if they are red, Fraxel if they are white like scars. If you have darker skin than the EMatrix would be my suggestion for you. It would be helpful if you posted a photo. Fraxel can be used on any area of the body. For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with these lasers.
