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.

BACKGROUND: Both pulsed dye laser and combined 585/1,064-nm (sequential dual-wave-length PDL and Nd:YAG) laser improves inflammatory skin disorders including acne vulgaris. OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of 585 nm pulsed dye laser versus sequential dual-wave-length PDL and Nd:YAG in treatment of acne vulgaris. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Thirty patients complaining of acne vulgaris were treated with a single pass of PDL alone on half of the face and a single pass of combined 585/1064-nm laser on the other half for four treatment sessions at 2 weeks interval, then assessed by the count and severity of the acne lesions & digital camera photographs Results: The study showed that inflammatory acne lesions count was significantly reduced by 82...

BACKGROUND: Bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) is capable of heating dermal collagen fibers and inducing skin tightening by collagen remodelling. OBJECTIVE: To substantiate safety and improvement of skin laxity following skin heating with a novel temperature and impedance controlled non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) device by histological and biochemical evaluations. METHODS: A split-face study was performed on 4 subjects that underwent 8 weekly RF sessions on one side of their face, leaving the other side an untreated control and then underwent face-lift procedure...

Lichen sclerosus et atrophicus (LSA) is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown cause that typically affects the genital area(1). It has been reported in post-traumatic areas as a result of Koebner´s phenomenon. LSA responds poorly to treatment making it a therapeutic challenge(2). Laser therapy has been described for LSA with variable results(3,4).

INTRODUCTION: The effects of IPL on collagen structures is well known in the treatment of photo damaged skin. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of IPL on sclerotic skin by treating patients with microstomia due to systemic sclerosis. METHOD AND MATERIAL: 13 patients all with microstomia and systemic sclerosis was treated with IPL PR/VL applicator. They were treated in the perioral area 8 times with 3-4 weeks' interval and follow-up for 6 months...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: There are no large volume comparative studies available to compare the efficacy of lasers over lights for hair removal in Fitzpatrick V and VI skin types. This study is designed to compare the efficacy of Nd:YAG Laser versus IPL in the darker skin types. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty nine patients included in Group-1 were treated with Nd:YAG and 31 in group-2 with IPL. Both groups received 5 sessions of treatment. The hair counts were assessed using digital photography and manual counting method before and after treatment and results were analysed...

According to the American Academy of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, more than 11 million cosmetic surgical and nonsurgical procedures were performed by board-certified plastic surgeons, dermatologists and otolaryngologists in the United States, totaling more than 12 billion dollars. We performed a retrospective observational multi-centric study on patients treated with a non-animal origin cross-linked hyaluronic acid with different molecular weights for nasolabial folds, evaluating through a new imaging system, profilometric techniques with the confocal microscopy, the durability, the efficacy and the safety of this product...

BACKGROUND: Visible leg veins are not only a mere aesthetic problem, but may also be manifestation of altered microcirculation and superficial venous incompetency. Sclerotherapy is the first-line treatment for leg veins < 4 mm, but it often needs multiple sessions and sometimes fails. The main limitations of transcutaneous laser treatment are the diameter and the depth of the veins: the greater, the harder photothermolysis is, so that higher powers may lead to aesthetic complications...

Mi Yu, Jun Young Lee
BACKGROUND: Polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) is an active compound that can promote wound healing. PDRN stimulates wound healing by enhancing angiogenesis and increasing fibroblast growth rates. Laser skin resurfacing is a popular cosmetic procedure for skin rejuvenation. Despite excellent improvement of photo-damaged skin and acne scarring, it is accompanied with drawbacks, such as prolonged erythema and crusting. OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to assess the effect of PDRN on wounds induced by fractional laser resurfacing...

The objective of this study is to develop a topical bead formulation of tranexamic acid (TA) which can be used concomitantly with laser treatment. The bead formulation of TA (TAB) was successfully prepared by fluidized bed drying method. Physicochemical properties of the TAB were evaluated in terms of chemical stability of TA and differential scanning calorimetry. TA in the bead was stable up to six months at 25°C and existed as amorphous state. In vitro skin permeation and in vivo skin retention of TA in the beads were significantly higher compared to a commercial product...

Acne vulgaris treatments usually cause sensitivity, teratogenicity and bacterial resistance. Investigations of other therapeutic techniques, such as phototherapy, are highly relevant. Thus, we compared the effectiveness of two Acne vulgaris treatments in adolescents: peeling with salicylic acid (SA) and phototherapy. Teens were randomly divided into: group I, treatment with SA peels (10%) and group II, treatment with phototherapy (blue LED and red laser lights). Photographs were taken before and after ten sessions of each treatment, carried out weekly, and compared...

BACKGROUND: Hyaluronic acid fillers are frequently used for maintenance of youthful appearance of perioral and lip region. The introduction of Juvederm(®) Volbella(™) with lidocaine and Juvederm(®) Volift(™) with lidocaine to the European aesthetic market in 2012 increased the options of fillers to be used and it appears to be a new solution to improve this area. OBJECTIVE: the aim of this study is to demonstrate how to correct this area using two new dermal fillers: Juvederm(®) Volift(™) with lidocaine, and Juvederm(®) Volbella(™) with lidocaine, based on the experience of two Italian phycians...

BACKGROUND: Melasma is the most common and distressing pigmentary disorder presenting to dermatology clinics. Various treatment protocols for melasma have been suggested in the previous literature and applied in various clinical settings. However, no satisfactory therapy has been widely accepted.

BACKGROUND: To date, no studies compared curative effects of thermal lesions in deep and superficial dermal layers in the same patient (face-split study). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate skin laxity effects of microneedle fractional radiofrequency induced thermal lesions in different dermal layers.

BACKGROUND: Several lasers have been used for the treatment of xanthelasma palpebrarum (XP), such as Q-switched Neodymium:Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (QSNd:YAG), Erbium:Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (Er:YAG) laser. However, there is no comparemental study among these laser options in the treatment of XP. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the clinical efficacy and response rates of QSNd:YAG and Er:YAG in the treatment of XP. METHODS: Sixty patients with a total of 102 XP lesions were randomly and equally divided into two groups...

INTRODUCTION: In order to avoid epidermal heat damage, we developed a novel irradiation method termed "Focused multiple laser beams (FMLB)", which allows long pulse Nd:YAG laser beams to be irradiated from several directions in a concentric fashion followed by focused into the dermis without epidermal damage. This method is completely different from simple optical focusing with lens on the point that the optical fiber can rotate mechanically. This study aimed to assess whether FMLB achieves the desired dermal improvement without epidermal damage...

Filler migration is a potential complication following the injection of multiple fillers. With the increasing popularity of multiple filler injections, migrated granulomas should be an essential differential diagnosis for newly growing facial lumps. It is important for all physicians to be aware that complication induced by dermal fillers can occur in locations other than the planned injected sites. We described a case of filler migration to the forehead due to not only two fillers injections, as the patient was addicted to cosmetic fillers...
