How do I treat stretch marks from weight gain?

Gender: Female / Age: 30 - 39
Dr. Schultz: While I know of no way to prevent stretch marks from weight gain, there are certain non-ablative resurfacing lasers such as the Fraxel, that when used in combination with Microdermabrasion, after 4-5 treatments, can be helpful in reducing the appearance of mature, skin-colored stretch marks. When stretch marks are new and pink, they are often helped with retinoids like Retin-A but should never be used during pregnancy.
