Laser treatment of abdominal striae

Krystle Wang, MD et al. at Thomas Jefferson University reported the use of 1540 nm (IconTM, Cynosure, Westford, MA) and 1410 nm (EmergeTM, Cynosure, Westford, MA) non-ablative fractionated lasers for the treatment of abdominal striae. The authors studied the effects of these two lasers on 10 patients. It was important to note that all patients developed hyperpigmentation of the area treated. The 1540 nm non-ablative laser was noted to be quicker in terms of procedure time than the 1410 nm laser and showed less pigmentary changes. This study was presented at the 35th ASLMS Annual Conference in Florida.
