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

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.

However, "true" stretch marks are tears in the dermis (deep layer of skin) and can really only be "removed" with surgery depending on their location. There are some laser type treatments that may give some visual improvement, but not erase or remove them. ...Read more
