    hello,this is very difficult to tackle.they dnt require medical treatment except for cosmesis sake.Retinoid cream: Derived from vitamin A, retinoids — such as tretinoin (Retin-A, Renova, Avita) — that you apply to your skin may improve the appearance of stretch marks less than a few months old. Tretinoin, when it works, helps to rebuild collagen, making the stretch marks look more like your normal skin. Tretinoin can irritate your skin.THIS MUST NEVER BE USED IN PREGNANCY.the other treatment options are expensive and rare to come by and are done by plastic surgeons e.g light and laser therapy,microdermaabrasion etc.
