In brief: Stretch

Stretch marks are difficult if not impossible to treat effectively.
The dermis (inner layer of skin)has permanently been damaged and no effective treatment has been proven to repair this tissue.

There is no effective treatment to remove or erase stretch marks. The appearance of the red, raised ones can be improved at times with laser surgery.

Has been claimed by various manufacturers.
Before i spend any hard earned money on such technology, i would require a written warranty of what results can be expected and if none are appreciated, there be some mechanism to get additional complimentary treatments or a partial refund. If a technology really works, I have no problem providing a guarantee.
