INTRODUCTION: Acne vulgaris is common dermatologic condition with an estimated prevalence of 70 to 87%. Acne has been shown to have a significant impact on patient quality of life and mental health, especially as inflammatory lesions typically occur on cosmetically sensitive areas with the potential for permanent scarring. There have been numerous advances in the treatment of inflammatory acne with light-based and laser devices. OBJECTIVE: To review the current evidence for light-based and laser treatments in the management of inflammatory acne...

Fibroadenomas are the most common benign breast lesions affecting adolescents and young women. Cosmesis is an important factor when considering surgical management for these masses. Giant fibroadenomas (>5cm), because of their size, may require larger incisions resulting in significant scarring and scar complications in these young women. Several approaches have been employed, usually involving large incisions, when performing a lumpectomy for giant fibroadenomas. In this report, we highlight a new technique for removal of these masses, which allows the removal of large fibroadenomas through a relatively small, cosmetically acceptable, circumareolar incision...

R Thiesmann
Blepharoplasty is one of the most frequently performed plastic cosmetic interventions. For this purpose the CO2 laser is an instrument that can be used as a laser scalpel to cut as well as in its ablative function to remove skin irregularities, such as scars and tumors and also to treat changes of the skin due to aging. Fractionated laser irradiation reduces the duration of skin redness and the postoperative rehabilitation time after a resurfacing. The advantages of the CO2 laser are a gentle intraoperative preparation and less postoperative swelling due to an additional cauterization of blood vessels...

Michelle Henry
Men of all races are currently more open to requesting and undergoing treatments for a plethora of cosmetic concerns. Among the most common goals are procedures that combat the signs of aging, rejuvenate the skin, even out the color tone, address textural issues such as acne scarring, and improve hair disorders. Given the differences in cultural ideals and anatomic/physiologic differences in ethnic skin, it is important for physicians to be aware and sensitive to the nuances required when providing consultation and treating non-Caucasian men...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy (MIVAT) has been introduced into clinical practice by Miccoli in the late 1990s (Miccoli et al., Am J Surg 181(6):567-570, 2001) and it has become a widespread technique used and welcomed worldwide. In this paper, we present our experience of the last 2 years; we also describe tips and techniques derived from over 460 cases performed in the last 10 years by the same surgical team with the same single operator. METHODS: In the last 10 years, we did about 460 MIVAT procedures...

BACKGROUND: Epicanthoplasty combined with double-eyelid blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Asians. However, the postoperative medial canthal scar is a concerned issue. Here the authors adopted some modifications of Z-epicanthoplasty to minimize the canthal scar. METHODS: Modifications of Z-epicanthoplasty were mainly in three aspects. First, supratarsal creases were created before epicanthoplasty to prevent the impact of tension variation on epicanthal incisions, caused by elevating and tightening of the upper eyelid skin...

OBJECTIVE: The normal process of skin tissue repair following injury invariably results in visual scarring. It is known that topical treatment with hydrophobic cosmetics high in silicone and mineral oil content can improve the appearance of scars and striae. Given lifestyle preferences of many cosmetic consumers towards so-called natural treatments, the objective of this controlled randomized study was to investigate the efficacy of a plant body oil rich in oleic and linoleic acids (Bio Skin Oil(®) ) for improving the appearance of scars and striae...

Scars resulting from deliberate self-harm (DSH) represent therapeutically challenging forms of scarring due to their highly variable patterns, with no official therapeutic guidelines available. In this pilot study, we aimed to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a non-ablative fractional Er:glass 1565 nm laser, as a potential new, minimal-invasive approach for the improvement of DSH scars. Sixteen Caucasians suffering from mature DSH scars were included in this clinical study. Patients received a total of three treatments using a non-ablative fractional 1565 nm Er:glass laser every 4 weeks, employing two passes (300 μbeams/cm(2), 40 mJ, onto the scar; 150 μbeams/cm(2), 50 mJ, overall area)...

Recent studies on congenital melanocytic nevi (CMN) indicate a lower risk for melanoma than assumed for many years. As a result, the treatment paradigm in CMN shifted from complete removal to cosmetically acceptable, less invasive treatment options such as laser treatment. Our objective was to systematically review the efficacy and safety of laser therapy for CMN. We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) and PubMed. We rated the quality of evidence with the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) approach...

BACKGROUND: The inverted peno-scrotal flap method is considered the standard method of vaginoplasty in male-to-female genital reassignment surgery. Though with numerous advantages, the method has its limitations regarding skin texture, lack of inherent lubrication, and that the tissues for creating the labia depend on the amount of tissues remaining after vaginoplasty. Our purpose was to describe the procedure and outcome of vaginoplasty applying a new technique: autologous buccal micro-mucosa free graft combined with posterior scrotal flap transfer, which could solve some of the problems the previous methods had...

Acne is a chronic disease that may cause sequels such as atrophic or hypertrophic scars or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Topical and systemic medications with proven pharmacologic activity and which have received marketing authorization are the key actors in the treatment of acne. However, these topical or systemic treatments frequently cause adverse effects related to impairment of the skin barrier, and cosmetics must therefore be used in combination to help protect the skin barrier. Nowadays, new cosmetic products containing active ingredients tested in vitro or in a small number of subjects have changed the world of cosmetics...
