Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of our study was to follow-up 15 patients with stretch marks treated positively with the CuBr laser (577-511 nm) in 1998-99 and followed-up for 2 years.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

The patients were Italian women, young to middle age (average 30 years old), with skin coloration classified as Fitzpatrick II-III. Biopsies were taken on some patients before the treatment and 1 month after the first treatment. Double-blind histological, histochemical and photographic evaluation was performed. Results obtained as well as to the contradictory effects reported elsewhere in the literature were compared.

RESULTS:

On average, the results were positive and there were some pathogenic considerations that justified the use of laser.
