Hello Anon,
Once you have stretch marks its impossible to make your skin normal like before.
You should use moisturizers with vit a,c,e or aloe Vera moisturizers regularly also You can also use Retinoids cream to even the skin.
IPL laser has some benefit and worth trying but ultimately you can never achieve 100% results with any kinds of treatments available till date.
Good Luck.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Sudden severe weight loss due to crash dieting causes stretch marks commonly. This is universal in every person. Weight loss should be a combination of proper diet and exercise. To prevent stretch marks you will need to apply stretch marks preventing creams as recommended by your Dermatologist. Once stretch marks have formed there is less chance to remove them completely. You can discuss with your Dermatologist about various treatment options like laser which can help. You need to eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Avoid sun exposure. Use sunblock SPF 25 to protect from UV rays. Apply moisturiser to keep the skin soft and supple. You can apply hair serum to improve quality of hair.
