BACKGROUND: Facial rejuvenation is an expanding field with an increasing number of treatment modalities. Several non-autologous filler materials are available for soft tissue augmentation. Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaOH) is aimed at increasing collagen neosynthesis and thereby producing long term augmentation effects. Despite a multitude of observational reports, the field is suffering from lack of quantitative morphometic evaluation methods. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this proof-of-principle study was to investigate whether the effects of facial tissue augmentation with CaOH (Radiesse™) can be quantified and followed up using 3D surface scanning...

Mesotherapy is widely used for its lipolytic effect as an alternative procedure to surgical methods. Although many benefits of lipolytic mesotherapy has been observed, numerous side effects have also been reported. Here, we report a case of cutaneous foreign body granulomas that occurred after lipolytic mesotherapy.

There are several therapeutic options to treat congenital melanocytic nevi. The motivations for the treatment of small- to medium-sized congenital nevi located on the face or other sensitive areas are frequently cosmetic. The choice of therapy depends on the operator's expertise and on the likelihood of improved cosmesis. We report a case of a medium-sized congenital nevi located on the lower eyelid, successfully treated with a combination of ablative lasers with a single surgical procedure. We achieved an excellent clinical and cosmetic result...

Growth factors and cytokines control cell growth, proliferation and differentiation via a network of inter- and intracellular signalling pathways, and are involved in skin self-renewing and wound healing. In recent years, topical and injectable growth factors and cytokines have emerged as an intriguing therapeutic modality that can be harnessed for aesthetic purposes. However, very little data are available on their long-term safety and tolerability. In this report, we describe two cases of patients, who developed intramuscular lipoma of the chin following topical injection with a mixture of basic fibroblast growth factor as the main ingredients for chin augmentation...

Low-level lasers are widespread in regenerative medicine, but the molecular mechanisms involved in their biological effects are not fully understood, particularly those on DNA stability. Therefore, this study aimed to investigate mRNA expression of genes related to DNA genomic stability in skin and skeletal muscle tissue from Wistar rats exposed to low-level red and infrared lasers. For this, TP53 (Tumor Protein 53) and ATM (Ataxia Telangiectasia Mutated gene) mRNA expressions were evaluated by real-time quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) technique 24 hours after low-level red and infrared laser exposure...

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...
