Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
are of three types depending upon their color.
1) dark black - called stria nigra.
2) white - called stria alba.
3) red - called stria rubra.
Treatment, though very unsatisfactory ,depends upon which color stretch marks one has.
Since you said you want to fade stretch marks ,i would guess that you have black stretch marks.(If I am wrong ,kindly correct me).
Black stretch can be improved by using certain creams containing either tretinoin
Some doctors prefer doing derma roller also .But you should understand that results vary from patient to patient and one can never get 100% results.
For white stretch marks ,there are lasers like RELUME. These lasers actually give color to the white line .These are costly lasers and are not so easily available.
I've used this laser for many years ,but the results were variable. There are certain clients where in we see very satisfactory result and what laser does is ,it just makes your white stretch marks match your original skin color,so that it is less visible.
Yes ,its something like tanning
of skin .
