Fractional CO2 laser is one of the most effective treatment options used to resurface scars; However, most previous studies have been performed on mature scars at least 2 months after surgery. Recent studies have emphasized the importance of early treatment to reduce scar formation. In the present study, we described our experience with fractional CO2 laser intervention before skin suture during scar revision surgery in Asians, and found the treatment was safe and effective.

INTRODUCTION: Acne scar is a common distressing complication of acne vulgaris. CO2 laser resurfacing proved effective for treatment of such problem but the associated complications may limit its use. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) may increase the chance of favorable outcome. AIM OF THE WORK: To evaluate the synergistic effects of autologous PRP with fractional CO2 laser resurfacing in treatment of acne scars among Egyptian patients. PATIENTS AND METHOD: This study included 30 patients suffering from post-acne scars...

INTRODUCTION: With aging, the vulvar tissue loses its vitality and elasticity due to collagen fibers fatigue. Such changes and functional characteristics of the external genitalia often cause negative psychological effects resulting in impeded sexual function. The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an RF device when used for treating labial laxity and for improvement of female sexual function. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 19 women received 4 once-a-week treatments using a monopolar RF device...

Hyperpigmentation of skin is caused by several factors. UV exposure, in addition to oxidative stress elevates inflammatory mediators stimulating melanogenesis. Herbal derived compounds for improving skin lightness are gaining interest as they are perceived to be milder, safer and healthier than fully synthetic products. This review briefly addresses the causes of skin hyperpigmentation and extensively summarizes the status of herbs currently used in skin lightening cosmetics. The properties of active compounds and their dose rate information is summarized where available, along with human or anamial relevant models for activity testing...

BACKGROUND: Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive method for the selective reduction of fat, especially proven to be safe and effective in body contouring. There is a demand for reduction in submental fat, which is related not only with a favorable appearance but also with signs of aging. OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the efficacy and safety of cryolipolysis for subcutaneous fat reduction in the submental area in Asians. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten healthy Koreans were treated using a cryolipolysis contact device (CoolMini applicator,, Zeltiq Aesthetics)...

The pulsed dye laser (PDL) is used for the treatment of a variety of vascular and nonvascular disorders, and its therapeutic efficacy often depends on purpura as an endpoint. However, post-PDL purpura is an undesirable side effect of treatment as it may increase patient dissatisfaction and downtime. Recent studies have suggested that repeat treatment with PDL may speed the resolution of post-procedural purpura; however, there is paucity of data on using repeat PDL treatment specifically for post-PDL purpura...

OBJECTIVE: Pseudoxanthoma Elasticum-Like Papillary Dermal Elastolysis (PXE-PDE) is a rare skin condition seen predominantly in elderly females. These asymptomatic lesions are brought to the dermatologist's attention due to patient's displeasure in their appearance. We report a case of a 28-year old female with PXE-PDE on the right neck treated with Non-Ablative Fractional Resurfacing (NAFR). CASE: The patient on examination had yellow to skin-colored papules that coalesced into a cobblestone-appearing plaque on her lateral neck...

In the present scenario, consumers are searching for personal care products that supply multiple benefits with minimal efforts. The outcome has been the introduction of nanotechnology-based cosmetic products that are safe to use and results driven. Some topical cosmetics can act efficaciously when they reach their target sites present in the deeper layers of the skin. The main problem with delivering active ingredients across the skin is the barrier function of the skin. Therefore, to get the maximum benefit from cosmetic products and to overcome the problems associated with their skin penetration, scientists are investigating various strategies to overcome these barrier properties...

BACKGROUND: Hydrolifting is a newly developed modality of skin rejuvenation, which enhances overall facial volume augmentation and recovers skin thickness through multi-pass HA injection. Although it is commonly performed, only a few articles have reported on the rejuvenating effects of hydrolifting. Moreover, clear protocols and possible mechanisms of the procedure have not been elucidated. OBJECTIVE: To define a novel technique for injecting HA and to clarify how to choose an appropriate HA filler based on the procedural purpose...

Nodulocystic acne is prone to scarring and difficult to treat with treatments other than oral isotretinoin. The aim of this article is to discuss the role of a single session of a fractional CO2 laser combined with a topical treatment with a tretinoin and antibiotic gel for a month as a successful treatment to improve nodulocystic acne and chronic microcystic acne. Two cases were involved: the first with nodulocystic acne lesions that persisted after oral retinoids and the second with chronic microcystic acne resistant to topical treatments...

BACKGROUND: In considering skin cancer, a number of factors-including effectiveness, simplicity of treatment, cost, and esthetic outcomes-are important to ensure patient's satisfaction. There are several existing interventions, such as electrodessication and curettage, excision, Mohs surgery, radiation therapy, cryotherapy, and topical/oral treatments. Laser therapy has emerged as a new promising alternative that should be explored. OBJECTIVE: To review the literature on the dermatological use of laser therapy in the treatment of skin cancer...

Café-au-lait macules (CALMs) are light to dark brown macules or patches of increased melanin concentration found along the dermoepidermal junction. Although many attempts to treat CALMs using various kinds of laser/light-based devices have been reported, CALMs remain refractory thereto with high recurrence rates. In this case series, we describe four patients with idiopathic CALMs that were effectively and safely treated with a non-ablative, high-fluenced, Q-switched (QS), 1,064-nm neodymium:yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser...

BACKGROUND: Angiokeratoma of Fordyce (AF) are dark red or blue-black papules with scaly surface located on scrotum, labia majora and penis. Though usually asymptomatic, bleeding after mechanical trauma and sexual intercourse may occure. AF should be differentiated from malignant melanoma, angiosarcoma and other pigmented lesions. The treatment, usually asked from patients as the result of anxiety and social embarrassment should be performed in an non-aggresive manner. OBJECTIVES: To determine the safety and effectiveness of 595-nm variable-pulse pulsed dye laser (VPPDL) with Dynamic Cooling Device (DCD) in treatment of AF...
