Fractional radiofrequency (FRF) is renowned for its use in cosmetic dermatology, with regard to the treatment of rhytides, striae, scarring and cellulite. We have systemically analysed its evidence for the use of FRF in acne scars. Our search identified 15 articles, one single-blinded randomised controlled trial, two split-face trials and thirteen prospective clinical studies, mostly single-centred. Case reports were excluded. In total 362 patients were treated. The longest follow-up was for 210 days, and on average the follow-up was for three months, varying between one and seven months...

BACKGROUND: Carbon dioxide therapy, better known as carboxytherapy, relates to percutaneous infusion of medical carbon dioxide with therapeutic approaches, and its use in the treatment of localized fat has demonstrated good results. Gynoid lipodystrophy, also known as cellulite, affects 80%-90% of women after puberty, especially in the buttocks and thighs. Its etiology is complex and involves multifactorial aspects. Its treatment and evaluation require the use of new technologies (more effective and low-cost approaches)...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The visual appearance of cellulite or the'orange peel'look of skin is a common cosmetic problem for many women. Cellulite, or more correctly lipodystrophy, is a modification of the adipose tissue, whereby the fat lobules are swollen as the result of a disturbed blood and lymph micro-circulation and fibrosclerose of connective tissue. In the wealthy diversity of products against cellulite, objective methods to measure their efficacy are of growing importance. The purpose of this study is to establish the effectiveness of a skin massage treatment by quantifying the changes in the skin via ultrasound imaging, during and following treatment...

BACKGROUND: Cellulite is one of the worst tolerated aesthetic imperfections. Edema that accompanies cellulite causes disorders of blood flow what may be observed as changes in the skin surface temperature. The aim of this paper was to develop a new method based on the analysis and processing of thermal images of the skin for biometric evaluation of severity of cellulite and monitoring its treatment. METHODS: The observations of the treatment effects were conducted on 10 females (33...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Non-invasive laser skin treatment modalities are generally designed to protect the epidermis by cooling and limiting the laser energy deposition in accordance with skin type. We explore a treatment modality that uses a 2,940 nm Er:YAG laser with high tissue absorption to ablate an array of channels through the epidermis and upper dermis, and then deliver laser energy from a 1,320 nm Nd:YAG laser with lower tissue absorption through the ablated channels. Treatment through ablated conduits offers a unique capability to deliver laser radiation to a deeper level in the dermis or beyond the dermis and the delivered energy to be deposited in a nearly uniform distribution...

Intermittent negative pressure devices were initially developed by NASA to enhance blood perfusion and combat a reduction in orthostatic tolerance. Investigational studies have demonstrated that the pressure differential produces changes in the blood and cardiac systems and also documented changes in weight and cellulite in obese patients. Although the mechanisms are not known, previous investigation has also reported changes in lymphedematous limbs. These initial results suggested to us that the inclusion of intermittent negative pressure into a lymphedema treatment protocol would be beneficial...

BACKGROUND: Patients increasingly seek to enhance the appearance of their legs. Elimination of unwanted leg veins, reduction of epidermal photo-aging changes such as solar lentigines and keratoses, tightening of skin laxity and reduction of adipose tissue are among the most commonly requested goals. Many patients require a combination approach to address their concerns. It is important for dermatologists to be aware of the multitude of procedures that can be performed, often in combination, to rejuvenate the leg...

A 67-year-old man presented with neck cellulitis following acupuncture for cervical spondylosis. Blood cultures were positive for methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus Increased neck pain and bacteraemia prompted MRI, which showed atlanto-axial septic arthritis without signs of infection of the tissues between the superficial cellulitic area and the atlanto-axial joint, thus making direct extension of infection unlikely. It is more likely that haematogenous spread of infection resulted in seeding in the atlanto-axial joint, with the proximity of the arthritis and acupuncture site being coincidental...

In our experience, patients tend to consider any undesirable feature on their body from the knees to the umbilicus, and even the arms, to be cellulite. It is important to educate prospective patients that Cellfina (Uithera, Inc, Mesa, Arizona) most effectively treats dimple-type cellulite, whereby fibrous bands inserting into the undersurface of the skin cause a puckered appearance. In this brief communication, we would like to share our experience in optimizing outcomes with Cellfina for the treatment of cellulite...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Cellulite and lipodystrophy are often found together, especially in areas of the buttocks and thighs, causing skin surface irregularities. Each of these conditions is currently treated independently as two separate surgical procedures. In our practice, we developed a novel combined approach for the simultaneous treatment of cellulite and lipodystrophy, as a single stage procedure in the same anatomic area. For the treatment of cellulite, we used the Nd:YAG laser at a wavelength of 1,440-nm, along with an innovative 1,000-micron directional side-firing fiber optic laser system...

Cellulite is a condition that affects the vast majority of women. Although it is of no danger to one's overall health, cellulite can be psychosocially debilitating. Consequently, much research has been devoted to understanding cellulite and its etiopathogenesis. With additional insights into the underlying causes of its clinical presentation, therapeutic modalities have been developed that offer hope to cellulite sufferers. This review examines evidence for topical treatments, noninvasive energy-based devices, and recently developed minimally invasive interventions that may finally provide a solution...
