Fractionated Lasers Are the Best Option for Striae Distensae

In an effort to identify the most and least effective treatment options for striae distensae (SD), Nicholas A. Ross, MD, et al, conducted a literature review of PubMed, MEDLINE, Scopus, Embase and Google scholar, reviewing published studies from 1773 to August 6, 2016. They identified 68 articles that met their inclusion and exclusion criteria, noting that there were few randomized, controlled trials that evaluated long-term efficacy.
