Some people swear by this method, helping to reduce the look of scars and stretch marks. It’s simple and affordable, helping to reduce the appearance of problematic areas. Apply a piece of duct tape to the affected area, leave it on overnight, removing it after a shower.

This will starve the tissue of oxygen and in turn, white blood cells rush to the area. This is similar to the suggested wart treatment. Although it will not erase a scar or stretch marks, duct tape can reduce visibility.
