There are many creams, gels and oils that claim to treat stretch marks. They may work for some and not others. If you want to try these topical solutions, ensure that you use the product on early stretch marks. Take time to massage the product into your stretch marks to increase efficacy. Apply the product diligently every day for weeks until you see results.
Studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid and Tretinoin (a retinoid) seem to offer some relief. Retinol, another type of retinoid, may also help fade early stretch marks.
Medical doctors may use procedures like chemical peel, laser therapy, microdermabrasion, radiofrequency (RF), and ultrasound to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. For optimum results, your medical doctor may use more than one procedure.
