Utility of platelet-rich plasma for treatment of striae distensae: A current exploration.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2020 Jun 25. Epub 2020 Jun 25.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has recently become a popular treatment for various skin conditions, including striae distensae, acne scars, traumatic scars, hair regrowth, and cutaneous rejuvenation. Although PRP has been utilized in orthopedics for many years, its recent entry into dermatology has been met with controversy. While the recent research has generally been limited and is often contradictory, this has differed from the persuasive marketing campaigns targeting patients and consumers. Read More

Combined microneedling with topical application of platelet-rich plasma versus microneedling alone in the treatment of stria distensae: clinicopathological analysis.

J Dermatolog Treat 2020 Jul 2:1-12. Epub 2020 Jul 2.

Faculty of Medicine, Department of Pathology, Assiut University Hospitals, Assiut, Egypt.

Striae distensae (SD) are common skin conditions. This study was done to test the hypothesis that 'the use of microneedling (MN) before platelet-rich plasma (PRP) application will allow for deeper penetration and therefore, augment its efficacy in the treatment of SD.' Forty patients with SD were divided into (i) Group I, the patients were treated with MN only, and (ii) Group II, the patients were treated with combined MN-PRP. Read More

Safety/Efficacy of New Topical Silicone Formulation with Selective Growth Factors for Treating Striae Distensae.

J Cosmet Sci 2020 Mar/Apirl;71(2):77-90

Aesthetic and Reconstructive Oculoplastic Surgery, Beverly Hills, California 90212 (R.K., A.W., B.K., C.I.Z.), Department of Plastic Surgery, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California 90033 (E.M.W.), Division of Applied Statistics, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand 6140 (V.P.).

Striae distensae (SD) are linear dermal scars that arise from progressive stretching or tearing of the dermal layer. This study tests the safety and efficacy of a topical formulation of silicone-based scar cream containing selective synthetic recombinant human growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to improve overall appearance and texture of SD. Twenty-two subjects with SD alba were recruited and randomized to apply the topical formula to half of their SD laterally twice a day for 1 month. Read More

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): Current Applications in Dermatology

Authors:
Jason Emer

Skin Therapy Lett 2019 Sep;24(5):1-6

Dr. Jason Emer, West Hollywood, CA, USA

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous serum containing high concentrations of platelets and growth factors. PRP continues to evolve as an important treatment modality with many applications in dermatology, particularly in the areas of hair restoration, skin rejuvenation, acne scars, dermal augmentation, and striae distensae. Furthermore, combining PRP with laser therapies, microneedling, dermal fillers, and autologous fat grafting produces synergistic effects, leading to improved aesthetic results. Read More

Skincare Research Institute, AMOREPACIFIC R&D Center, Yongin, Korea.

Background: Striae distensae (SD) are skin lesions of parallel streaks, which mostly occur during rapid tissue expansion. Considering the etiological mechanism of SD, including dermal network ruptures and alignment to mechanical stretch, structural directionality or anisotropy could be expected. Non-invasive objective methods for measuring the anisotropy of SD have not been suggested yet. Read More

Microneedling Treatment of Striae Distensae in Light and Dark Skin With Long-Term Follow-Up.

Dermatol Surg 2020 Apr;46(4):459-464

MKL Dermatology, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Background: Striae distensae have notoriously been difficult to treat due to their extensive involvement of nonfacial skin. Microneedling with its lack of thermal injury during microneedling treatment renders it a viable treatment option in darker skin tones and nonfacial regions due to the reduced risk of postinflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Objective: To describe the clinical results and side effects of microneedling in a series of 25 individuals with striae distensae. Read More

Striae reconstructed, a full thickness skin model that recapitulates the pathology behind stretch marks.

Int J Cosmet Sci 2019 Jun;41(3):311-319

Provital, S.A., Gorgs Llado 200, 08210 Barbera del Valles, Barcelona, Spain.

Clinical Research Center, Institut d'Expertise Clinique (IEC) Korea, Suwony, Gyeonggi-do, Korea.

Background: Striae distensae are common dermal lesions that progress through two different stages: the striae rubra, which appears to be erythematous, and striae alba, which is characterized by a hypopigmented feature. The clinical characteristics between striae distensae stages and normal skin remain unknown.
