Stria develops as the result of thinning of skin, damage of collagen and fibers. It may also develop due to the conditions which impair skin elasticity (pregnancy, fast weight gain etc.), side effects of some medications. These striae may develop in thigh, posterior side of the knees, abdomen and chest.

Fractional laser is among the most effective methods for treatment of stria. Collagen gets dense with heat effect of fractional laser and skin begins to heal. Skin may be treated through skimming with fractional laser. All of these methods may also be used in combination.
Three-for sessions may be required depending on the structure of stria and skin. One session takes 30-60 min. Intervals between sessions may be 20-30 days depending on repair rate of the skin. Skin healing creams, vitamins which have been recommended by your doctor may be used between sessions. Mesotherapy, dermoroller, PRP and some other laser types may be used in combination with this method.
