Alternative medicine

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Many alternative therapies claim to treat stretch marks, including the plant extract gotu kola, olive oil, or combinations of botanicals, vitamins and fruit acids. There's no evidence that these products work.

If you're pregnant, check with your doctor before using alternative products that claim to treat or prevent stretch marks.
