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.
