I’m aware (thanks to your Q&A) that nothing will completely get rid of stretch marks. However, would you still be willing to treat some areas with a Fraxel laser to help texture and so forth? Obviously it’s not a cure but to what extent will it help the appearance of old stretch marks?


Skin needling may be a way to improve the appearance of your stretchmarks as it stimulates collagen production which improves the appearance of scaring and will also improve the texture of the surrounding skin. It has minimal risk to those with an olive to a darker skin type and little down time.
