Minimal Scar Formation After Orthopaedic Skin Incisions Along Main Folding Lines.

J Bone Joint Surg Am 2019 Mar;101(5):392-399

Division of Plastic Surgery, University of California San Diego, San Diego, California.

Background: Patients, particularly those who are young, often develop noticeable orthopaedic scars. In order to achieve minimal scarring, surgeons should attempt to place incisions in skinfolds or skin creases.

Methods: Optimal incision lines can be determined from the direction of stretch marks (striae distensae), which develop perpendicular to lines of tension or main folding lines. Read More

Is carboxytherapy a good alternative method in the removal of various skin defects?

Dermatol Ther 2018 09 28;31(5):e12699. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Department of Cosmetology and Aesthetic Dermatology, Faculty of Pharmacy, Medical University of Łódź, Łódź, Poland.

Carbon dioxide is a physiologic compound present in our body, mainly as a result of cellular metabolism. The frequency of carboxytherapy use by dermatologists and cosmetologists increased significantly in the second half of the 20th century due to the fact that it improves blood circulation within skin tissues. This article focuses on the use of carboxytherapy in case of various skin problems, such as stretch marks, scars, loss of elasticity, redundancy of fatty tissue, cellulite, morphea, and alopecia.

a Department of Clinical Medicine and Surgery, Section of Dermatology , University of Naples Federico II , Naples , Italy.

Striae distensae or stretch marks are dermal scars characterized by flattening and atrophy of the epidermis. They develop particularly during adolescence but they can also appear in other situations such as pregnancy, the use of prolonged therapies with topical or systemic corticosteroids, Cushing's syndrome, Marfan's syndrome, prolonged use of lightening creams, cachexia, rapid weight loss or the use of androgenic and anabolic substances. Treatment options often take a long time, and the results are often disappointing, causing significant psychological distress in patients. Read More

Striae distensae (SD), otherwise known as "stretchmarks," are a common presenting complaint, particularly in young healthy women. SD are hypothesized to form in a patient when the cross-linked collagen is "overstretched" and rupture of this collagen matrix causes the striae. Thus, many treatments work by increasing collagen synthesis. Read More

In vivo study of dermal collagen of striae distensae by confocal Raman spectroscopy.

Lasers Med Sci 2018 Apr 7;33(3):609-617. Epub 2018 Jan 7.

Biomedical Engineering Innovation Center, Biomedical Vibrational Spectroscopy Group, Universidade Brasil-UNBr, Rua Carolina Fonseca, 235-08230-030, Itaquera, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

This research work mainly deals with studying qualitatively the changes in the dermal collagen of two forms of striae distensae (SD) namely striae rubrae (SR) and striae albae (SA) when compared to normal skin (NS) using confocal Raman spectroscopy. The methodology includes an in vivo human skin study for the comparison of confocal Raman spectra of dermis region of SR, SA, and NS by supervised multivariate analysis using partial least squares discriminant analysis (PLS-DA) to determine qualitatively the changes in dermal collagen. These groups are further analyzed for the extent of hydration of dermal collagen by studying the changes in the water content bound to it. Read More
