In brief: You can't

Stretch marks are tears in the skin from below.
Many things have been tried, creams, lotions, lasers and none of them have shown long term improvement. Acne scars can removed and converted from a round depressed scar to a straight line scar if that would be an improvement. There is no such thing as scar removal just scar improvement.

In brief: Scar improvement

It depends on the maturity of the scar. If the scar is fairly new then massage and pulsed dye laser is a good option.
Using vit e oil with massage . If the scar is mature then treatment options will need to be evaluated depending on the appearance of the scar.
