Laser Treatment for Stretch Marks
I too have unsightly stretch marks on my upper thighs and buttocks. I have not had children, I do regular exercise, I am not over weight and I apply vitamin E/ Tissue Oil on the effected areas daily. The stretch marks don't seem to be fading and I still seem to be getting more.
I have heard that you can have laser treatment on stretch marks, is this true and if so where could I and many other readers get more information. It is a huge and depressing thing for women.

Claims have been made that stretch marks can be improved by laser, but there is no conclusive evidence yet that it would remove stretch marks. In some cases, it might only improve it.
