A:   Stretch marks usually occur in times of rapid growth like in pregnancy due to increased stretching of the skin.Unfortunately getting rid of stretch marks completely is very difficult and many treaments prove to be futile. However studies have shown some positive effect by using creams containing vitamin E and cocoa butter .Retin A is a cream which is helpful in treating fresh stretch marks. Also while surgery may be the most effective option you could also try cosmetic laser treatment for the stretch marks which have proven to be effective. All the best.
