Our expert says:
Stretch marks are permanent damage to the middle layer of the skin due to fast expansion ( like in pregnancy or when you pick up weight quickly) There are no effective treatment in the form of creams. Stretch marks get lighter and thinner with time anyway.
Topical retinoid creams may help but can make the skin dry and sensitive to sun.
Dermabration, laser and chemical peels done by dermatologist may help.
