In brief: Stretch marks

Stretch marks are damage to the skin by tensile forces which damage collagen fibers.
They may respond to laser therapy or intense pulsed light depending on whether they are vascular (with tiny veins) or older and less red appearing. They can be reduced in appearance but will not disappear entirely.
