In brief: Mederma

Medermastretch mark cream will lighten fresh red stretch marks.
They will not disappear but will improve in appearance. Further treatment options are fractionated laser, co2 or erbium performed in a series of 3 sessions about one month apart. Another treatment option is carboxytherapy or injections of carbon dioxide gas which can be done weekly for a few weeks with on downtime.
