Fractional photothermolysis was initially introduced by Manstein in 2004 .Fractional CO2 laser technology introduced has allowed physicians to obtain good cosmetic results with a lower rate of complications than non-fractionated ablative laser treatment. However, adverse effects may still occur.Reported cases of HSV infection after fractional photothermolysis are rare. A 48-year-old woman with Fitzpatrick skin type III presented with a scar in her perioral area desiring esthetic improvement of her burn scar...

BACKGROUND: Laser toning is one of the most popular strategies to treat facial photopigmentation and aging. Several laser modalities, including fractional non-ablative, Q-switched (QS) lasers and new generation picosecond lasers have been used for this indication. However, there is paucity of head to head comparisons of older generation of lasers with new ones. OBJECTIVE: To compare a 755 nm picosecond pulsed alexandrite laser with a non-ablative 1927 nm fractionated thulium laser for the treatment of facial photopigmentation and aging through a randomized, single-blind study...

Striae distensae (SD) are atrophic dermal scars often found on abdomen, breasts, thighs, and hips of pregnant women. The strias' self-healing without any intervention is a poor possibility. Till now, several lasers and light sources have been used for treatment of SD. However, there are no integrated therapeutic approaches determined for treatment of SD yet. So, in this study, the therapeutic effect of fractional ablative CO2 laser in women with pregnancy was assessed. Twenty-four ethic Iranian women aged between 20 and 42 years with various severity of pregnancy SD enrolled in retrospective case series study...

Pearly penile papules (PPP) are physiological lesions in the epithelium of the corona of the glans penis which extend to its neck. These lesions may also appear on both sides of the frenulum. Although they are not pathological, the lesions frequently cause concern or embarrassment/discomfort in patients. They are the most common reason for seeing a dermatologist. There are several methods of treatment for PPP such as cryosurgery, electrocoagulation, treatment with CO2 , Er:YAG, or pulsed dye lasers. This paper describes the authors' experience in removing PPP with a CO2 laser...

Lymphangioma circumscriptum (LC) is a lymphatic malformation presenting with vesiculo-papules or warty lesions, resembling a "frog-spawn". Many treatment modalities have been described but random excision is still often needed. Bleomycin is a safe sclerosant with specific action on the vascular endothelial cells. It has been used extensively in cystic hygromas but its use in LC of the skin has not been documented previously. We present this case with extensive LC of the flank treated with a combination of intralesional bleomycin and radiofrequency ablation in the same sitting...

Lichen planus pigmentosus (LPP) is a cosmetically disfiguring condition. Many treatment options are available which are effective in halting the progression of the disease. The treatment of persistent pigmentation is still a challenge. We describe the use of Q-switched Nd-YAG laser in 13 patients with stable LPP using a standard protocol. Most of our patients showed complete to near-complete resolution of pigment without much complications.
