Keratoacanthoma (KA) is a subtype of squamous cell carcinoma whose development has been linked to excessive sun exposure, immunosuppression, and trauma. Given the rapidly expanding therapeutic armamentarium for anti-aging modalities in dermatology, reports of KA secondary to invasive cosmetic procedures are on the rise. We present a case of eruptive KAs after full- eld ablative Erbium:YAG 2940 nm laser resurfacing of the face that resolved with minimal intervention. This case demonstrates the potential for a rare yet signi cant laser complication that may warrant discussion during the consenting process...

Topical anaesthetic cream (TAC) is commonly used as a pre-treatment of ablative fractional resurfacing (AFR) laser. Most of anaesthetic cream contains distilled water as major component. Therefore, pre-operative TAC may interfere the photothermal reaction in the skin treated with fractional carbon-dioxide (FCO2) laser and fractional erbium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (FEr:YAG) laser. The objective of the study was to compare the ablative width (AW) and coagulative depth (CD) of AFR laser with and without pre-treatment with TAC...

Penile-preserving surgery offers a revolutionary alternative to more traditional radical surgery. It offers better sexual, functional, and psychological results and evidence suggests it achieves this without sacrificing oncological outcomes. We examined the evolving nature of such surgeries, addressing controversies such as safe margins and survival outcomes and discussing more conventional techniques, including laser. At our UK center, we treat a high volume of penile cancer and here, based on such experience, we describe our glans resurfacing, glansectomy, and partial penectomy techniques; their application by disease stage; and the limitations of such surgeries...

Christopher B Zachary
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...
