INTRODUCTION: In order to avoid epidermal heat damage, we developed a novel irradiation method termed "Focused multiple laser beams (FMLB)", which allows long pulse Nd:YAG laser beams to be irradiated from several directions in a concentric fashion followed by focused into the dermis without epidermal damage. This method is completely different from simple optical focusing with lens on the point that the optical fiber can rotate mechanically. This study aimed to assess whether FMLB achieves the desired dermal improvement without epidermal damage...

Mi Yu, Jun Young Lee
BACKGROUND: Polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN) is an active compound that can promote wound healing. PDRN stimulates wound healing by enhancing angiogenesis and increasing fibroblast growth rates. Laser skin resurfacing is a popular cosmetic procedure for skin rejuvenation. Despite excellent improvement of photo-damaged skin and acne scarring, it is accompanied with drawbacks, such as prolonged erythema and crusting. OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to assess the effect of PDRN on wounds induced by fractional laser resurfacing...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Hyperpigmentation is a common concern in Asian patients. Few published studies address overall skin rejuvenation in this group using long-pulse (LP) laser to target pigmentation and stimulate dermal remodeling. The LP KTP 532-nm laser (LP 532-nm) is used primarily to remove epidermal lesions, while the LP Nd: YAG 1064-nm laser (LP 1064-nm) is used to stimulate dermal remodeling in Asian patients with varying efficacy. The LP 532-nm used alone and in combination with LP 1064-nm to reduce pigmentation and rejuvenate skin was previously evaluated in lighter skin, but not in Asian skin...

BACKGROUND: Bellafill® is a soft tissue dermal filler composed of non-resorbable polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) microspheres, suspended in a water-based carrier gel composed of 3.5% bovine collagen. It has been approved by the FDA for the correction of nasolabial folds and atrophic facial acne scars. Energy-based therapies are used for facial rejuvenation and treatment of acne scarring. However, little has been published about the effects of energy devices on previously placed PMMA. This prospective, in vivo clinical study evaluated the safety and histopathological effects of a number of different laser, light, and ultrasound treatment modalities on PMMA-collagen filler previously injected into human tissue...

For decades, devices and peels have been used for facial rejuvenation and the treatment of skin damage. In recent years, new laser systems have been developed, including fractionated ablative and non-ablative lasers which, while not as effective as the traditional laser resurfacing, can provide nice results with reduced side effects. While fractionated hybrid systems, picosecond lasers, and daylight photodynamic therapy have all been rolled out for clinicians to assess their efficacy, future technology, including TRASER (total reflection amplification of spontaneous emission of radiation) technology, should be just around the corner...

A proper knowledge of noninvasive facial rejuvenation is integral to the practice of a cosmetic surgeon. Noninvasive facial rejuvenation can be divided into patient- versus physician-directed modalities. Patient-directed facial rejuvenation combines the use of facial products such as sunscreen, moisturizers, retinoids, α-hydroxy acids, and various antioxidants to both maintain youthful skin and rejuvenate damaged skin. Physicians may recommend and often prescribe certain products, but patients are in control with this type of facial rejuvenation...

INTRODUCTION: The shape and contour of the chin and neck play an important role in facial esthetics. As such, excess fat within the submental area (double chin) can negatively affect facial esthetics and body image. Common treatments for submental contouring include invasive procedures such as surgical rejuvenation and targeted liposuction. Energy devices (lasers, radiofrequency, and ultrasound) may be used to improve submental skin laxity while cryolipolysis was recently cleared in the United States for use in the submental area...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous solution of plasma containing 4 to 7 times the baseline concentration of human platelets. Platelet-rich plasma has been widely popular in facial rejuvenation to attenuate wrinkles and has been practically used. The authors have been encountering various patients of increased hiperpigmentation following PRP applications that were performed to attenuate the postinflammatory hiperpigmentation especially after laser treatment. The authors have been using PRP for facial rejuvenation in selected patients and in 1 patient the authors have encountered increased pigmentation over the pigmented skin lesions that were present before the application...

Barry E DiBernardo, Gabriella DiBernardo, Jason N Pozner
Minimally invasive devices are a departure from standard laser therapies, because energy is delivered directly below the skin through a 1-mm incision. Lasers can affect such tissues as fat for enhanced disruption, coagulation of small blood vessels, and skin tightening at the right temperatures. Minimally invasive radiofrequency devices can tighten skin but can also improve neck muscle laxity. These devices can achieve results not possible with traditional external devices and, because the skin is not penetrated with energy, a much improved healing profile is seen as well...

In this study were described the results, by tridimensional imaging evaluation, of the new "Combined Fractional Resurfacing" technique with the first fractional laser that overtakes the limits of traditional ablative, nonablative fractional resurfacing by combining CO2 ablative and GaAs nonablative lasers. These two wavelengths can work separately or in a mixed modality to give the best treatment choice to all the patients. In this study, it is demonstrated that the simultaneous combination of the CO2 wavelength (10600 nm) and GaAs wavelength (1540 nm) reduced the downtime, reduced pain during the treatment, and produced better results on fine wrinkles reduction and almost the same results on pigmentation as seen with 3D analysis by Antera (Miravex)...
