Stretch Marks Removal
Stretch marks form when the skin layer becomes thin and less flexible. They are commonly associated with pregnancy and often change from pink to white over time.
Retin A is often used to fade early pink stretch marks. In some cases, Retin A can cause stretch marks to disappear completely, but this treatment usually is not as effective once the marks have turned white.
Risks include abnormal irritation, redness, blistering, and peeling of the skin. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should not use Retin A. This substance can be absorbed into the uterus and is found in breast milk. For older stretchmarks, laser procedures may be used.
