Luana Campos, Marina Gallottini, Débora Pallos, Alyne Simões, Fabiana Martins
BACKGROUND: Drug-induced gingival overgrowth (DIGO) is attributed mainly to the prolonged use of calcium channel blocking agents, anticonvulsants, and anti-calcineurin inhibitors . The management of DIGO depends on the severity of the disease and includes surgical intervention and plaque control. Compared to conventional surgical treatment, the recent literature data have shown that gingivectomy using a high-power laser (HPL) is a short and easy procedure, which results in minimal postoperative discomfort and greater patient accep- tance...

INTRODUCTION: Chemical peeling is a safe method, widely used to treat a variety of skin conditions and reduce the aging effects. This study aims to evaluate self-esteem among adolescents who undergo chemical peelings. MATERIAL AND METHODS: One hundred and twenty six patients constituted the study group. Sixty seven individuals had undergone chemical peeling for therapeutic reasons and 59 individuals for cosmetic reasons. To assess patients' self-esteem, the Rosenberg's Self-esteem Scale (RSES) was used before and after treatment...

Alopecia is a common disorder affecting over half of the world's population. Within this condition, androgenic alopecia (AA) is the most common type, affecting 50% of males over 40 and 75% of females over 65. Anecdotal paradoxical hypertrichosis noted during laser epilation has generated interest in the possibility of using laser to stimulate hair growth. In this study, we aimed to critically appraise the application of low-level laser therapy for the treatment of AA in adults. A systematic review was performed on studies identified on Medline, EMBASE, Cochrane database, and clinicaltrials...

OBJECTIVES: To explore efficacy of protein extracts from medium of Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) via microneedles on Asian skin in a double-blind, split-face, randomized, control study. METHODS: Thirty volunteers received the treatment, left-side and right-side of their face were randomly assigned to test side and control side. The protein extracts from medium of ADSCs were applied via microneedles into the test side and ultrapure water was applied into the control side...

Recall erythema is a phenomenon occurring when an area of epidermis treated with laser is later exposed to a trigger, most often sunlight or hot water, causing erythema in the zone of laser treatment after post-treatment erythema has already resolved. Radiation recall dermatitis is a more specific subtype of recall erythema in which an area treated with radiation is subjected to another exposure causing erythema in the area of previous radiation. Cases of recall dermatitis after laser treatment are extremely rare and have only been reported with diode neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet lasers...

OBJECTIVE: Laser skin resurfacing (LSR) has been used for facial rejuvenation for the last 20 years. Posttreatment care after LSR is essential to decrease the risk of complications. Currently, no unified standards or criteria exist for invasive LSR posttreatment care. We aimed to identify the optimal wound care timing and choice of specific local, systemic, and general medical measures required to decrease complications. METHODS: We performed a systematic search of the PubMed/MEDLINE electronic databases and included only articles written and published in the English language, with no restrictions on the publication time (year)...

Alopecia is a common disease affecting more than half of the world total number of people. Alopecia exists in different types, but one of the most common of these types is the Androgenic Alopecia which has affected approximately 51% of the total number of males ranging between the age bracket of 40 years and 75 years. This type of alopecia is more common in females who are above the age of 65 years and above. Despite this widespread effect, much has not been done regarding identifying the possible drugs for treating this disease...

Serge Mordon
Hidradenitis suppurativa is a chronic, recurring, and disabling inflammatory condition of the skin. There is no cure for hidradenitis suppurativa and treatment must be adapted to each individual patient. Several studies have been published since 2004 on the use of photodynamic therapy to treat hidradenitis suppurativa. The use of superficial or interstitial illumination with 5-amino-levulinic acid (5-ALA) or methylene blue (MB) have been proposed. Injecting 5-ALA or MB followed by illumination with a fiber optic sensor placed inside the lesion appears to be a better method of treating these thick lesions...

OBJECTIVE: We used JetPeel, combined with topical minoxidil to treat patients with AGA, in order to observe whether the JetPeel can accelerate the recovery of the disease and find a new method for AGA treatment. METHOD: Thirty patients who met the standard were included in the study. The patients were randomly divided into three groups. The first group was treated with JetPeel-assisted topical minoxidil. The second group received topical minoxidil monotherapy. The third group was not given any treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Despite high incidence rate of cellulite, there are few studies regarding its treatment. Most of them present non-validated evaluation tools. Radio frequency is a focused treatment very used in aesthetics to reduce it. OBJECTIVES: To know the efficacy of Monopolar Dielectric Radio frequency (MDR) treatment in dynamic applications to reduce cellulite, panniculus adiposus and gluteal and posterior thigh regions. METHODS: Experimental study consisting of inferior members of nine women...

BACKGROUND: Striae distensae (SD) are a type of dermal scarring that is quite common and difficult to treat. Two forms are known: striae rubrae (SR) and striae albae (SA). OBJECTIVE: We compared the long-term clinical effectiveness of a 1550-nm non-ablative fractional laser (NAFL) in treating SR and SA. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We included 16 female patients (8 with SR and 8 with SA) who had developed abdominal SD during pregnancy. All underwent five moderately high-energy sessions of 1550-nm NAFL treatment at 4-week intervals...

PCL filler can be injected in two major ways to control pain. One such method involves mixing 0.3cc of PCL filler with lidocaine, and the other is the method introduced in this report, which involves pre-injection with a tumescent solution. It is hard to reduce pain effectively with pre-mixing PCL filler with lidocaine because there may be not enough time to act lidocaine solution effect immediately for pain control. The pre-mixing method changes the properties of the original filler, especially the property of the CMC portion...

BACKGROUND: High recurrence has previously been reported in the treatment of melasma with low-fluence 1,064-nm Q-switched neodymium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (QS-Nd:YAG) laser. On the other hand, the efficacy and safety of the QS-Nd:YAG laser plus microneedling with vitamin C have not been evaluated in patients with mixed-type melasma. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Sixteen patients with recalcitrant dermal- or mixed-type melasma were included in the study. One side of patients' face was treated with QS-Nd:YAG laser plus microneedling with vitamin C (Group A) and the other side with QS-Nd:YAG laser alone (Group B) for four sessions at four-week intervals...

Axillary hyperhidrosis combined with osmidrosis is a common problem, especially in Asian communities, that patients find annoying. Even though several surgical techniques have been reported to treat hyperhidrosis/osmidrosis permanently, patients would prefer a non-surgical approach. A microwave-based device was invented during this decade, and it has proven to be a safe and efficient way to treat axillary hyperhidrosis/osmidrosis without major complications. Mild complications reported are vacuum-associated marks, oedema, tenderness and temporary altered skin sensation...
