Does anyone have experience with successful removal of stretch marks? If I can prove for my daughter that she will be able to find this treatment somewhere in the world then she is ready to begin trying to recover for the first time in nearly 10 years without being pushed.
A cruel twist in her extremely staved condition is that stretch marks appeared in her last hospital stay 18 months ago.
Unfortunately this was not from eating.
She now wants to try and learn
to eat small amounts after years of chew and spit. An assurance that her skin can be fixed will set her on a first recovery effort. She will perish soon unless I can inspire her.

Surely someone out there can offer guidance on professional help somewhere in the world for stretch mark removal. Just the knowledge that stretch marks can be removed could save a life.
Does anyone have experience with stretch mark removal?
Any advice much appreciated!!

I had posted on your other thread and still suggest a proper medical assessment that is individual to your d's needs. 
We are not doctors and cannot give medical advice. And a proper diagnosis would need to be made to facilitate a proper therapeutic plan.

My had got terrible stretch and used bio oil (you can get it at Coles, Woolies or any pharmacy) for several months. Buy a large bottle and tell her to apply it twice a day, but that it would take months before she would see a difference. My d's stretch are now a lot better. I used it in my first pregnancy and after several months the stretch marks were gone.
D became obsessed with exercise at age 9 and started eating 'healthy' at age 9.5. Restricting couple of months later. IP for 2 weeks at age 10. Slowly refed for months on Ensures alone, followed by swap over with food at a snails pace. WR after a year at age 11 in March 2017.
