Retin-A (tretinoin) helps shrink some stretch marks
There's preliminary evidence that Retin-A (tretinoin) helps shrink some stretch marks and improve their appearance.
This may be similar to its benefit in smoothing wrinkles.
People have tried lots of creams to get rid of stretch marks from pregnancy...obesity...weight-lifting, etc. So far, tretinoin is the only one with enough scientific evidence to support its use.
