Getting Rid of Stretch Marks

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Stretch marks can be challenging to completely remove, but in many patients we can achieve good improvements using Fractional CO2 laser treatments (combined with brightening creams specially for darker marks). Based on the pictures you seem to be a candidate, but it is important to start this treatment with realistic expectations (remembering that the goal is improvement as opposed to complete removal and that multiple sessions are often needed). I hope it helps and good luck!
