Question: Can using skin bleaching creams on scars and stretch marks help disguise them?

I have heard that using skin bleaching creams on scars and stretch marks can help in disguising them. How true is this and what are the long-term consequences of it? Thank you in advance, Nossy

Answer

Thank you for your question! You need to remember that stretch marks and scars are an injury on the dermis, deep down in the skin. Bleaches can only affect the surface. So no, you would not be able to hide or disguise a scar or a stretch mark by bleaching it.
