Fractional laser: Stretch marks can be improved in their appearance through the use of fractional laser such as the fraxel laser, or by using a micro-needling technique. Unfortunately there is no perfect solution for stretch marks at this time.

Sorry, no: You are not alone out there! stretch marks have not been tackled effectively even by modern medicine. All the claims of different topical creams/preps of "eradicating" those is nothing but a trick to get you to buy those. Laser surfacing therapy may be somewhat helpful, but no 100% guarantee.

Losing weight/sunscr: Losing weight is the first step. Sunscreen with also help these streaks show less. An spf 30 or higher is recommended, as stretch marks do not tan like regular skin and will therefore stick out more after a day at the beach.

Are there any creams that can reduce or remove stretch marks?

I wish...: ...That any of the myriad of creams advertised for treatment of stretch marks actually worked, but they don't. There is some anecdotal evidence that Retin-A cream might work for some people. Keep in mind that collagen grows very slowly, so any treatment will take a year or more to see measurable improvement. One type of laser may work on purple stretch marks, but that gets expensive.

Stretch Marks: Laser therapies use intense wavelengths of light to stimulate the growth of collagen, elastin or melanin production in your skin. Your doctor can help you determine which type of laser technology is appropriate for you, depending on the age and location of your stretch marks and your skin color.
