I have had 2 children and gained a lot of weight during pregnancy which caused stretch marks on my stomach. I have got back to a healthy weight and I am trying to find out the best way of getting rid of them. Please let me know if there is something that can get rid of my stretch marks.
Stretch marks are a bit like scars in that they tend to improve with time, and also there are treatments to improve them but not get rid of them completely. We can use a laser called the Fraxel laser to help re-organise the collagen within the stretch mark, and this can give you a mild improvement.
