BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Acne scarring is a widely prevalent condition that can have a negative impact on a patient's quality of life and is often worsened by aging. A number of options are available for the treatment of acne scarring, including retinoids, microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, and surgical techniques such as subcision. The aim of this review is to evaluate the different laser modalities that have been used in peer-reviewed clinical studies for treatment of atrophic acne scars, and summarize current clinical approaches...

BACKGROUND: Fractional photothermolysis is creation of microscopic thermal zones of controlled depth, width and density. Microneedling is a simple treatment modality to reduce striae distensae. OBJECTIVE: Evaluate and compare the efficacy of fractional carbon dioxide laser and microneedling as a treatment of striae distensae. METHODS: Individuals with striae distensae received three split-body treatments at four-week intervals. The right side of the body was treated with fractional CO2 laser, while the other side with microneedling...

Sandhya Deverapalli, Nellie Konnikov
Fractional bipolar radiofrequency technology is associated with minimal downtime and rare side effects and become an increasingly popular tool in aesthetic dermatology practices. There is limited damage to the epidermis, and side effects such as post-inflammatory hypo/hyperpigmentation are rare. Transient erythema, edema, crusting, and persistent inflammatory papules have been previously reported. We report a rare case of sterile follicular pustulosis following treatment with bipolar fractional radiofrequency (eTwo technology)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess objectively the effects of the combination of corundum microdermabrasion and cavitation peeling in the therapy of seborrheic skin with visible symptoms of acne punctata. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study involved a group of nine women. A series of six treatments with the combination of microdermabrasion and cavitation peeling were performed within facial skin at 10-14 days intervals. Corneometric measurements examining skin hydration level and sebumetric measurements analyzing skin sebum level were made before the series of treatments and after second, fourth and sixth procedure in five facial areas...

INTRODUCTION: Hypertrophic scars are abnormal scars that are a source of great functional, psychological and financial burden to the patient. Currently available treatment modalities are either very cumbersome to use or have not provided very satisfactory results. Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy for the management of hypertrophic scars has been recently introduced. However, most of the studies available are from the Western population. In this trial, we aim to study the effect of IPL on the South Indian population with darker skin and compare it with an existing treatment modality (silicone gel sheet)...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the effects of the whole body vibration in improving of cellulite in the women's gluteal region. METHODS: Controlled clinical trial performed with 42 women, with cellulite in the gluteal region, detected by means of clinical examination. After evaluation, the women were divided into two groups: Whole-Body Vibration (WBV_G) and control (C_G). The evaluations were performed at the beginning and the end of 10 sessions and superficial skin temperature, perimetry in the gluteal region, analysis of body contouring, analysis of improvement by blind reviewers and instrument of satisfaction, by numeric scale were investigated...

INTRODUCTION: Fractional lasers and microneedling devices are increasingly used with topical drugs to treat various conditions, including alopecia, as they grant access to dermal structures such as hair follicles and cutaneous vasculature. OBJECTIVE: To perform a comprehensive review on transcutaneous drug delivery for the management of alopecia. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and Ovid Medline databases were searched using terms including: alopecia, microneedling, lasers, androgenetic alopecia (AGA), alopecia areata (AA), drug delivery...

Yegyu Sung, Min Hee Kim, Eujin Cho
Dermal fillers are highly favored around the globe as minimally invasive or nonsurgical procedures. Imatinib mesylate is the first-line treatment for patients diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia. However, some studies describe that imatinib mesylate may increase the tendency of skin fragility which can lead to easy bruising and hyperpigmentation after invasive skin procedures. Yet, to our knowledge, no studies have described any successful dermal filler injection performed on patients who are under imatinib mesylate treatment...

BACKGROUND: Laser and light-based therapies have often been used successfully to treat rosacea. Recently, short-pulsed intense pulsed light (IPL) that emitted pulse durations down to 0.5 ms was found to be effective for rosacea treatment. OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the efficacy of short-pulsed IPL in the treatment of rosacea compared with pulsed dye laser (PDL) using same pulse duration and fluence. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Nine patients with rosacea were enrolled in a randomized, split-face trial...

There are several ways to prevent and treat hypertrophic scars. In recent years, lasers have been quite extensively used in treating scars. For example, Pulsed Dye Laser (PDL) and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) can accelerate mutation of scar, whereas non-ablative and ablative fractional laser can improvescar texture. Dual-wave-length laser treatment is extensively used for blood vessel diseases but is rarely used and less reported for treatment of hypertrophic scars. Our study focuses on the efficacy and safety of dual-wave-length PDL and Nd:YAG in treatment of hypertrophic scars...

Postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) and erythema are the most common adverse effects associated with laser treatment, particularly in dark-skinned individuals. Several methods have been used to prevent or minimize these adverse effects; however, to date, no definitive precautions/strategies are known to prevent post-laser PIH and erythema. We investigated whether the topical application of the α-adrenergic receptor agonist brimonidine could reduce laser treatment-related complications such as erythema and PIH...
