Hi there. At the outset, one will have to view these stretch marks. An off the shelf remedy that you can start while waiting for your doc's appt would have to be Palmer's cocoa butter local appln. However, if definitive cure is desired or at least improvement, depending on the stretch marks, fractional lasers are a good bet. Personally i would couple that treatment along with carboxytherapy that is the local injection of carbondioxide gas..painless & effective & of course a topical cream depending on which country you hail from. Please do fix an appointment with your local dermatosurgeon or cosmetic specialist as very few will actually have a laser that helps & even fewer the carboxytherapy gun. Cheers & wish you a great skin!
