Abstract

Linear atrophy of the skin or striae (striae distensae) is a widespread cosmetic defect that leads to a significant decrease in patients` quality of life. To date, one of the most effective modalities of striae distensae treatment are laser therapy methods. A wealth of clinical experience has been accumulated in the use of ablative laser techniques, namely the carbon dioxide CO2 laser (10600 nm) in the treatment of striae albae. This article presents a review of current literature and a clinical observation of a patient with different types of linear atrophies.
