When stretch marks first form they are considerably easier to treat. Topical moisturizers can be used to reduce the worsening of new stretch marks. And common stretch mark creams will have the maximum effectiveness before the marks have had time to heal completely below the skin’s surface.
Older stretch marks on the other hand are deeply embedded into the skin and have already turned into scar tissue. This makes the “removal” of old stretch marks considerably harder.
No topical product is capable of totally “removing” stretch marks. They can simply serve to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. And doing so is tougher when the stretch marks have been left untreated for more than a year.
