The laser removal of stretch marks has been subject to scrutiny, as many people do not experience the results they would like to see. Many times, the effectiveness will depend on how severe the marks are, as well as the skin type of the individual. Since the procedure is so expensive, it is often cost-prohibitive for many women as well.
