Laser for stretch marks on stomach and breasts

Has anyone had laser treatment for stretch marks. I've searched in talk, but there's not much there. I am thinking of getting it done, but it's so expensive, can probably only afford breasts for now.

... is it effective? Does it smooth/ firm up crepey ridged skin? Is it safe? Side effects? Breast cancer?

I really want to improve the skin texture as it is over stretched and I'm finding it upsetting, but obviously don't want to create more problems and would rather not have actual surgery.

Bumping for you for purely selfish reasons!

Thanks! So I actually went and had a skin test done today. It's pretty red and a bit stingy, but will get a bit of an idea in a week, so will post and let you know. She seemed to think it would improve the skin texture. Would still be good to hear from people who have done it.

Watching too. I have very old stretch marks on boobs that are silvery lines now, would love them removed

So even after the test one there is a definite improvement. Going for more in a few months, had to wait til I have more time!
