The increasing melanin hyperpigmentation of dark skinned individuals was related to the high activity of melanocytes. Also smoking reactive the melanocytes to produce melanin. Gingival depigmentation is a periodontal plastic procedure which has been carried out by various techniques. A healthy 36-years-old female patient complained about unaesthetic gingiva and she had smoked over 17 years. Hyperpigmentation of gingiva observed on the labial surface of both maxilla and mandibula. Er,Cr:YSGG laser was used for depigmentation with wavelength of 2780nm, frequency of 20hz, and pulse energy between 0-300 Mj...

Trichoepitheliomas are benign cutaneous tumours often occurring on the face and can lead to considerable psychological distress to its sufferers. Treatment is often difficult and surgery is limited by the obvious scars and multiple number of lesions. Carbon dioxide laser ablation can be used safely with good cosmetic outcome and low recurrence rate and in this article we describe our experience in the treatment of these tumours with the carbon dioxide laser. This is the largest reported series in the literature...

INTRODUCTION: One of the most important innovative methods for tissue repair promotion is therapeutic lasers with photobiomodulution effects. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of four different wavelengths of therapeutic laser (405 nm, 532 nm, 660 nm and 810 nm) laser on healing of third-degree burn injuries from both clinical and pathological standpoint of view in rats. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 60 male Wistar rats were used. Animals were anesthetized and dorsal hairs were shaved and third-degree skin burns were created by use of a 95?C copper stamp...

BACKGROUND: Gynecomastia, as a most common benign condition represents itself as the enlargement of the male breast and also nipple-areola complex as the severity of the condition increases. With this study, we aimed to clarify the effects of 980-nm diode laser on nipple-areolar complex (NAC). OBJECTIVES: Although numerous open techniques have been described to correct gynecomastia, nowadays trends have shifted to minimally invasive techniques such as laser-assisted lipolysis (LAL)...

Background Melasma is a common acquired facial hypermelanosis with irregular brownish macules and patches. The clinical course is often fluctuated and refractory to treatment. The present study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pulsed Alexandrite laser for the treatment of melasma. Material and method In the present study, we enrolled Asian patients with melasma. All the patients received four monthly treatments with a pulsed Alexandrite laser. The severity of melasma was evaluated by a blinded dermatologist, using the Modified Melasma Area and Severity Index (MMASI), and by patient assessment, using a visual analogue scale, at baseline, before each treatment, and at the 1-month and 3-month follow-up visits after the last treatment...

Melasma is a common pigmentation in Asian women. Lasers have been used to lighten melasma, although with variable outcomes and complications. In Asia, laser toning is a common technique used to safely lighten melasma. However, no large studies have been performed to validate efficacy. In our study, we demonstrate that in 38 970 Asian women, at least 35 890 patients (92.1%) had noticeable to excellent improvement in their melasma.

INTRODUCTION: In order to avoid epidermal heat damage, we developed a novel irradiation method termed "Focused multiple laser beams (FMLB)," which allows long-pulse neodymium:yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser beams to be irradiated from several directions in a concentric fashion followed by focusing into the dermis without epidermal damage. This study aimed to assess whether FMLB achieves the desired dermal improvement without epidermal damage. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The dorsal skin of New Zealand White rabbits was irradiated with FMLB...

Thermal effect of dual wavelength (980 and 1064 nm) laser application in skin incision closure was assessed on 18 male and female Wister rats. 1-cm-long incisions were made on the shaved dorsal region of 220-250 g animals. The incisions were closed by laser irradiation at 1 W and exposure time, 5 seconds in continuous-wave mode (CW) and 1 W and exposure time, 10 seconds in pulsed mode to deliver total energies of 5 J and 10 J per spot onto the incisions, respectively. Animals from each group were sacrificed at 0th, 4th, and 7th days and the skin samples of the weld area were excised for histological analysis using Hematoxylin and Eosin (H & E) stain...

INTRODUCTION: Cellulite is a metabolic condition, predominately seen in females, that affects the subcutaneous tissue of the posterolateral thighs, buttocks, pelvic region, and abdomen. This condition has a distinct histologic pathology compared to obesity, that is characterized by skin dimpling and lumpiness resembling an orange peel. Despite the wide range of treatment options for cellulite, there is paucity of empirical data supporting their efficacy. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of a new generation multipolar radiofrequency device for the treatment of cellulite...

Laser therapies have been shown to provide symptom improvement in patients with erythema and telangiectasia of rosacea; however, they are associated with side effects such as erythema. Combinatorial treatment with pharmacological agents and laser have demonstrated better efficacy, fewer side effects and continued long-term remission compared with monotherapies. A case of moderate facial erythema that responded well to combination treatment with brimonidine 3 mg/g gel and a treatment course of potassium-titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser therapy is presented, showing a reduction from baseline, maintained after final laser session, by applying brimonidine 3 mg/g gel daily...

Drug delivery is a critical issue in any disease treatment. Now-a-days much more effort is being focused on integrating imaging agent and therapeutic drugs in a single formulation to achieve a simultaneous disease diagnosis and targeted drug delivery. This new terminology 'nanotheranostics' have been used to describe these nanoparticle formulations. In past few years, number of nanocarriers (liposomes, nanoparticles, dendrimers, micelles, antibodies etc.) has been studied for targeted delivery of chemical or biological molecules...

Median canaliform nail dystrophy is an uncommon and idiopathic dystrophic change, typically appears as central, longitudinal groove or split involving one or both thumbnails. Various treatments including potent topical steroid, an intralesional injection of triamcinolone 2.5 to 3 mg/dL, medications for systemic treatment, and topical psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) have been tried to treat the disease. However, each treatment has limitations including severe pain, inconsistent treatment results, long treatment periods, and dissatisfaction with effects of treatment...

Skin aging, as a natural course, is a gradual process. It can be classified as either intrinsic or photo-aging. In recent years, as the attention to lower face wrinkles and laxity has raised significantly, the demands to facial rejuvenation also increased, along with a variety of technologies coming into being. Fractional bipolar RF as a novel means of rejuvenation has been used in clinical practice, but questions remain in terms of its efficacy and safety. Considering a large population in our country and huge demands for skin tightening, we did this research to evaluate the efficacy and safety of fractional bipolar radiofrequency...
