Apratim Goel, Vallari Gatne
BACKGROUND: Pitted acne scars of all types remain notoriously challenging to treat with no satisfactory treatment modality, particularly true for darker Fitzpatrick skin types such as Indian skin. AIM: Nanofractional radiofrequency has been shown to be an effective treatment modality for the cosmetic improvement of acne scars. METHODS: Twenty healthy male and female Indian patients aged 16-60 years with Fitzpatrick skin types IV-V and moderate-to-severe acne scar lesions received 1-3 treatments with a nanofractional radiofrequency device (Venus Viva) at baseline and at 3- to 6 week intervals and were evaluated with photographs at each treatment visit and up to 6 months after the final treatment session...

Nevus lipomatosus cutaneous superficialis (NLCS) is an uncommon lesion characterized by ectopic adipose tissue in the dermis and can be generalized or localized. It presents as a soft skin colored to yellowish papules or cerebriform plaques occurring usually on the buttock or thigh in a segment distribution. We report a case of NLCS in 38-year-old female, which was treated using the ultrapulse mode CO2 Laser. We describe the scientific logic and clinical results of using the ultrapulse mode in relation to the pathology of NLCS...

OBJECTIVE: In the article, comparison of the hyaluronic acid (HA) and autologous fat is conducted to evaluate the effectiveness and safety in correction of the nasolabial folds (NLFs). METHODS: From November 2012 to December 2015, a single-blinded, randomized study was conducted. Sixty-two patients were included in the study, and 57 of them completed the whole procedure. The patients were randomly allocated to receive the treatments of HA or fat in both NLFs.

Salvatore Giordano, Marco Romeo, Petteri Lankinen
INTRODUCTION: The use of plated-rich plasma (PRP) has increased among different surgical specialities for the treatment of various conditions. Androgenetic alopecia is a common condition, with severe attendant psychosocial implications. PRP injections for hair restoration have become a popular practice among plastic surgeons. We performed a meta-analysis comparing local injection of plated-rich plasma versus control to evaluate this issue in order to investigate the effectiveness of PRP local injections for androgenetic alopecia...

Colloid milium is a rare cutaneous deposit disease that usually presents clinically by the development of yellowish translucent or flesh-colored papules or plaques on sun-exposed skin. Histologically, it is characterized by the presence of colloid in the dermal papillae. In this case report, we present a 52-year-old man who presented with a nodule on his upper lip that mistakenly was diagnosed and treated as keloid.

Hydatid cyst (HC) is a parasitic infection caused by Echinococcus granulosus. It occurs frequently in liver and lungs. Hydatid cyst of neck is extremely rare occurrence, and here, we report it with this unusual location. A 25-year-old male nonhypertensive and nondiabetic presented with slowly growing painless swelling in right side of neck for 4-5 years. The swelling measured 5 × 3 cm and was of soft to firm consistency. Fine needle aspiration cytology yielded fluid aspirate and smear showed features suggestive of HC...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown that radiofrequency (RF) energy is safe and effective for improving skin laxity. Unlike monopolar and bipolar devices, little has been studied with the unipolar hand piece. OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel fractional unipolar RF device on facial tightening. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective, single-center study of 14 subjects with age-related facial laxity who underwent five sessions of fractional unipolar RF at an interval of 2 weeks, and then followed-up for 3 months...

BACKGROUND: Fractional bipolar radiofrequency treatment and treatment with bipolar radiofrequency combined with infrared light have been shown in previous trials to safely and effectively improve the appearance of facial wrinkles. AIMS: To evaluate a high-energy protocol with combined bipolar radiofrequency and infrared light energies for improvement in photoaged facial skin. PATIENTS/METHODS: Seventy-two patients presenting with mild to moderate facial wrinkles underwent a single full-face treatment (n=54) or two treatments (n=18) at 6-week intervals...

BACKGROUND: Although keratin hydrolysates have become established as standard components in hair and nail cosmetics, studies on the moisturizing effects of keratin hydrolysates do not appear among contemporary literature. OBJECTIVES: To test if adding keratin hydrolysate into an ointment base increases hydration of the skin and improves skin barrier function, or diminishes trans-epidermal water loss. METHODS: Formulations were prepared containing 2%, 4%, and 6% keratin hydrolysates (based on weight of the ointment base)...

Ana Paula M Martini, Daiane G Mercurio, Patrícia M B G Maia Campos
BACKGROUND: Cutaneous hyperchromias are disorders of skin pigmentation involving an increase of melanin production and its irregular accumulation in skin cells. It is known that the use of sunscreens helps to prevent changes in the skin pigmentation pattern, but the structural and morphological alterations that occur in the different types of hyperpigmentations need better elucidation. OBJECTIVE: To assess the influence of solar exposure and protection habits on the pattern of skin pigmentation using reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM)...

BACKGROUND: The side effects of mesotherapy for treatment of various forms of alopecia are often underreported, while scientific data for its efficacy are severely lacking. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate the late onset side effects of mesotherapy for alopecia. METHODS: Three patients with androgenetic alopecia showed hair loss after previously uneventful mesotherapy sessions up to 1 year. RESULTS: Clinical, dermoscopic, and histopathological findings suggested an inflammatory scaring process at sites of mesotherapy injections...

BACKGROUND: Skin pH is an important parameter indicating the condition of the skin because imbalance can contribute to the development of skin problems and earlier aging. Individual skin pH depends on many factors such as hydration, sweating, sebum excretion, genetics, sex, and age. Additionally, it can be affected by exogenous factors such as cosmetics. AIMS: The aim of the study was to compare different collagen gels and determine whether and to what extent they change the pH of the skin...

BACKGROUND: Chemotherapy-induced alopecia (CIA) is probably one of the most shocking aspects for oncological patients and underestimated by physicians. Among hair loss risk factors, there are treatment-related aspects such as drug dose, administration regimen, and exposure to X-rays, but also patient-related characteristics. To the best of our knowledge, no guidelines are available about CIA management. AIMS AND METHODS: With this study, based on literature background and our clinical experience, we would like to propose a list of actions in order to estimate the risk of hair loss before starting chemotherapy and to manage this condition before, during, and after drug administration and to create a sort of practical guide for dermatologists and oncologists...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound is a mechanical wave that transmitted in a straight line and it can be focused at frequencies of 1-7 MHz with a high degree of precision. An important aspect of HIFU is that damaging focal point is located several millimeters below the surface of the skin and tissue above and below the focal point remains unaffected. Due to absorption of this energy, temperature of tissue rises to more than 60°C and this stimulates the cells for collagen production and tissue rejuvenation...

BACKGROUND: Bioactive peptides have beneficial effects on the skin. OBJECTIVE: We investigated to evaluate the effect of acetyl hexapeptide-3 and tripeptide-10 citrulline and the possible synergism between these two peptides. METHODS: Twenty-four healthy volunteers were randomized to receive combination of acetyl hexapeptide-3 with tripeptide-10 citrulline (Group G1), tripeptide-10 citrulline (Group, G2), acetyl hexapeptide-3 (Group G3), or neither peptide (Group G4) for 60 days...
