Ask A Doctor Question:
Hello, so my stretch marks appeared on my abdomen right after I delivered my baby. I didnt get any during my pregnancy so I thought I was in the clear. They are around my belly button and the streaks appear white in color with surrounding darker pigmented skin. I am an african american female. I still have a semi dark belly from the pregnancy and the dark line running down my stomach. What can I do about my stretch marks, which procedure? Chemical peel? Microdermabrasion? Laser? * Also I noticed a nickel sized HYPOpigmented spot behind my leg is this normal and can it go away?
