Abstract
Background: Striae distensae are linear atrophic dermal scars covered with flat atrophic epidermis. They cause disfigurement, especially in females. Many factors may cause striae distensae such as steroids, obesity and pregnancy. Although there is no standard treatment for striae, many topical applications, peeling, light and laser systems have been tried. Aims: This study aims to evaluate and compare the efficacy of fractional CO2 laser with intense pulse light in treating striae distensae. Subjects & Methods: Forty patients with striae distensae were recruited. Twenty of them were treated by fractional CO2 laser and 20 were treated with intense pulse light. Length and width of the largest striae were measured pre and post treatment. Patient satisfaction was also evaluated and graded. Patients were photographed after each treatment session and photos were examined by a blinded physician who had no knowledge about the cases. Results: Both groups showed significant improvement after treatments (P<0.05). Patients treated with fractional CO2 laser showed significant improvement after the fifth session compared with those treated with ten sessions of intense pulsed light (P<0.05) in all parameters except in the length of striae (P>0.05). Conclusion: Fractional CO2 laser was found to be more effective in treatment of striae distensae.
