Will the IPL lasers Make my Stretch Marks Worse?

I have seen some stories about stretch marks getting worse after the IPL procedure. Are these tall tales? Is there any truth to these stories? I want to make sure my expectations are set correctly before taking the next step in this whole process.

IPL is used to decrease the red in red stretch marks.  For the white or lighter stretch marks we use Intracel RF microneedling to improve the texture. Intracel is preferred because the post effects of redness and swelling are much less than the fractional CO2 laser or Fraxel laser.
