A. Expert Answer

Hi There, Stretchmarks post pregnancy is very common and something we see often at our clinics. We have several treatments available to reduce these stretchmarks. The newer they are, the better. So purple ones should be fairly easy to treat. It is when they go white or silvery that it gets more challenging. Treatment would include Carboxytherapy, Laser Genesis and Skin Needling , all focused on stimulating new collagen in the area. A course of treatments, between 6-8, are needed to achieve the desired results, and can be done twice a month. I would recommend a consultation with one of our Skin Renewal Doctors, so that they can analyse the area and make their recommendations.
