Try a few things: Stretch marks are caused when the body rapidly changes in size, often with pregnancy, puberty, or rapid weight gain. Taking measures to decrease weight or stop weight gain is one step to avoid further marks. For old marks, you can try the following: daily moisturizer, glycolic acid(AHA), or vitamin E oil. For new marks prescription Retin-A can be helpful. Laser treatments are another good option.
