Topical brimonidine-assisted laser treatment for the prevention of therapy-related erythema and hyperpigmentation.

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2018 Sep 20:1-3. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

c Department of Dermatology , Chung-Ang University College of Medicine , Seoul , Korea.

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. Read More

Lasers in the treatment of acne.

G Ital Dermatol Venereol 2017 Aug 28;152(4):360-372. Epub 2017 Mar 28.

Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami Hospital, Miami, FL, USA.

Acne is a chronic disease of the pilosebaceous units, presenting as inflammatory or noninflammatory lesions, affecting primarily the face but also the back and chest. The mainstay of treatment remains topical retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, azelaic acid, antibiotics, and isotretinoin, many of which result in poor compliance, lack of durable remission, and incur adverse effects. The use of lasers to treat acne is continuously increasing because of their minimal complications, limited number of office-based treatments required, potential benefits of simultaneously treating acne scarring, and the rapid onset of results.

[Melasma : An update on the clinical picture, treatment, and prevention].

Hautarzt 2017 Feb;68(2):120-126

Klinik für Dermatologie, Venerologie und Allergologie, Universitätsklinikum des Saarlandes, 66421, Homburg, Deutschland.

Melasma, also known as chloasma or mask of pregnancy, presents clinically as hyperpigmented skin areas, which develop mostly in the face as a consequence of increased synthesis of melanin. The established treatment options, including topically applied agents and the use of various laser systems, mostly result in improvement but not in complete remission of the lesions. Because of its significant impact on quality of life and the limited effectivity of available treatment options, the management of melasma is challenging for the treating physician. Read More

Comparative study of wound healing in rat skin following incision with a novel picosecond infrared laser (PIRL) and different surgical modalities.

Lasers Surg Med 2016 Apr 4;48(4):385-91. Epub 2016 Mar 4.

Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, Hamburg, 22761, Germany.

Background And Objective: As a result of wound healing the original tissue is replaced by dysfunctional scar tissue. Reduced tissue damage during surgical procedures beneficially affects the size of the resulting scar and overall healing time. Thus the choice of a particular surgical instrument can have a significant influence on the postoperative wound healing. Read More

[What's new in instrumental dermatology?].

Authors:
T Michaud

Ann Dermatol Venereol 2015 Dec;142 Suppl 3:S8-S17

5, rue du Werkhof, 68100, Mulhouse, France. Electronic address:

The publications in the field of aesthetic dermatology including those related to laser treatment and related procedures are numerous. Nevertheless, a large number of them lack a serious and well-structured methodological approach or are biased and may lead to false conclusion due to conflict of interest. The selection of the publications used for this review, while subjective, has been based on the strength of the methodology applied as well as their benefit to the dermatological community as a whole.

Scar Management in the Pediatric and Adolescent Populations.

Pediatrics 2016 Feb 7;137(2):e20142065. Epub 2016 Jan 7.

Department of Dermatology, Naval Medical Center, San Diego, California.

For most children and adolescents who have developed symptomatic scars, cosmetic concerns are only a portion of the motivation that drives them and their caregivers to obtain treatment. In addition to the potential for cosmetic disfigurement, scars may be associated with a number of physical comorbidities including hypertrichosis, dyshidrosis, tenderness/pain, pruritus, dysesthesias, and functional impairments such as contractures, all of which may be compounded by psychosocial factors. Although a plethora of options for treating scars exists, specific management guidelines for the pediatric and adolescent populations do not, and evidence must be extrapolated from adult studies.

Comparison of 532 nm Potassium Titanyl Phosphate Laser and 595 nm Pulsed Dye Laser in the Treatment of Erythematous Surgical Scars: A Randomized, Controlled, Open-Label Study.

Dermatol Surg 2016 Jan;42(1):70-6

Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, Washington, DC.

Background: The pulsed dye laser (PDL) has long been used for treatment of erythematous and hypertrophic scars. Its effectiveness has been attributed in large part to its vascular-specificity. The vascular-specific potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) laser has also been reported to be clinically effective for scars, but has not been compared to the PDL. Read More

Diagnosis and Management of Infantile Hemangioma.

Pediatrics 2015 Oct;136(4):e1060-104

Infantile hemangiomas (IHs) are the most common tumors of childhood. Unlike other tumors, they have the unique ability to involute after proliferation, often leading primary care providers to assume they will resolve without intervention or consequence. Unfortunately, a subset of IHs rapidly develop complications, resulting in pain, functional impairment, or permanent disfigurement. Read More
