This skin cream is one of the most common medical treatments suggested by dermatologists. Retinoid cream is made up of Vitamin A like tretinoin(Retin-A, Renova, Avita ). This cream helps in collagen remodeling because of which the stretch marks reduce but the response is very slow and unpredictable.

2. Laser Therapy
Laser therapy is a popular option that patients undertake. In laser therapy, a beam of highly concentrated light is focused on the skin area that has stretch marks. The laser therapy is of two different types Ablative and non-ablative lasers.
In the first type i.e ablative laser treatment, the topmost layer of the skin is destroyed which makes way for a fresher and younger looking skin.
In the second type i.e. non-ablative laser treatment, the laser is focused on the skin below the topmost layer. This process is used to promote collagen growth which in turn makes the skin lighter and smoother. One of the reasons why this treatment is popular is due to the minimal time spent as it is a non-invasive procedure.
Skin City has developed a unique combination protocol to treat stretch marks, combining Ultrapulse laser, Enerjet JVR, Radiofrequency and Excimer. So a patient can get the procedure done anywhere between 45 to 90 min. Also, this procedure has a faster recovery time, hence a person can recover in a few sessions. The number of sessions and the gap between them depends upon the depth,type of stretch marks.
In this procedure, a medical device that has abrasive surface is used to sand away the upper thick layer of the skin, paving way for new skin that will be healthier and softer reducing the stretch mark’s visibility.
In an alternative procedure minute crystals made up of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate are sprayed which exfoliates the upper dead layer of the skin thus redcuing stretch marks.
