A:   Hello,
Thanks for choosing "Ask The Doctor" for posting your query.
Natural stretch marks as occurs during pregnancy can be avoided by applying Vit E cream but the same cannot be removed ones they have already developed. Some of the doctors recommend derm abrassion as a technique to remove stretch marks, but its effective only in a small number of patients. So I would suggest you to accept the marks and let them be.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

Wish you good health!
