In brief: Mederma, laser

Mederma stret h mark cream will lighten stretch marks.
Additional improvement requires laser or carboxytherapy. Palomar 1540 is approved for stretch mark i provement and can achieve up to 75 per cent. Carboxytherapy is non laser treatment with injections of heated medical carbon dioxide gas to help stimulate collagen and repair stretch marks.

I like the Palomar 1540 if you have the money. FYI that marijuana use has been associated with development of stretch marks so avoid. Also, weight gain, high cortisol, growth spurts may also cause.
