In brief: Stretch marks
Stretch marks are scarring of the skin.
Once they occur they cannot be removed with out surgery. Keeping the skin moisturized may help minimize the risk of getting stretch marks.

you can improve them with a topical retinoid like tazarotene. a vascular laser can minimize the redness, and recent work has shown improvement to the actual striae with co2 laser fractional resurfacing.

Also, the dermapen treatment has shown some improvement of the striae.

In brief: No
Unfortunately there is no cure for stretch marks but certainly applying moisturizers such as coco butter can help prevent stretch marks and make them look better. If the skin is dry it will "crack" more.
