No cure: Stretchmarks are a difficult problem. They represent small tears in the dermis that nothing really repairs. Lasers can be beneficial in blending the scars in with the surrounding skin, as can some creams. No one solution works for everyone unfortunately.

Moisturize: There are no meds that will repair stretch marks. Moisturizing the skin can help with the appearance, and the gentle massaging action of application may help during growth spurts or pregnancy. Stretch marks are very common, and we have been looking far a cure for centuries.
