Stretch marks can be reduced using multiple options available at Dr. Venus Clinic in Hyderabad with the aid of state-of-the-art machines but it cannot be removed completely.

1. Topical formulations like Tretinoin works on stretch marks by reducing its physical appearance thereby lightening it.
2. Micro-Needling: It works by creating micro injures through a number of needles. These micro-injuries heal through secondary wound healing and simultaneously induce collagen and elastin regeneration.
3. Micro-Needling in combination with PRP: Micro-Needling when combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) enhances the results attained by inducing the generation of new collagen and elastin. The PRP injections with growth factors help the skin look tighter and better to reduce stretch marks.
4. CO2 Laser: It is a resurfacing laser therapy which modifies the appearance of scars and helps in collagen and elastin regeneration.
5. Micro-Needling Radio Frequency: This device can also be used to improve the appearance of stretch marks causing the collagen and elastin regeneration by creating micro-injuries and also simultaneously by delivering radio frequency energy.
6. Pulsed Dye Laser Treatment: For red or pink-colored stretch marks, a laser called pulsed dye laser which targets the pigments exclusively is performed for attaining good results.
7. Nd YAG Laser: Similar to the pulsed dye laser mentioned above, this laser also targets on color pigments to reduce the stretch marks.
However, treatments started earlier and in initial stages can bring about healthier and desirable results.
