Biophysical properties of Striae Distensae evaluated in vivo using non-invasive assays.

BACKGROUND Striae Distensae (SD) or stretch marks are manifestations of epidermal atrophy that occurs after tissue tearing due to rapid growth or over-stretching and are characterized by distinct microstructural features. The objective of this in vivo study was to investigate the biophysical properties of SD lesions, including skin barrier function, skin… CONTINUE READING
