Does laser treatment for stretch marks actually get rid of stretch marks, or just reduce the appearance of them?

In brief: Sorry

Stretch marks are tears in the skin cause by weight gain.
They can be covered up, but not improved by creams and lotions. The only possibly effective therapy is cosmetic plastic surgery, but that's a big step for a non-health and non-life threatening problem.
