How to Get Rid of Stretch Marks

Red ones respond best.

Q: Would you recommend retinol for stretch marks? Despite having an averaged-sized chest, I have serious tracks on my boobs. I've tried Dermarolling and 50 percent glycolic peels, but neither one worked very well in getting rid of them. (In fact, I may have made the skin more slack.) Any advice is appreciated. Thanks! — Kelly

A: Kelly, thank you for your question. 

There are two types of stretch marks. New stretch marks are usually red, while older stretch marks are white. The newer they are, the easier it is to treat them.

Retinol

Retinol will help stretch marks if they are still red.
