    Steel Wool-Aided Dermabrasion of Deep Partial-Thickness Burns.
    J Burn Care Res 2016 Oct 7. Epub 2016 Oct 7.
    From the *Clinic of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Kayseri Training and Research Hospital, Kayseri, Turkey; †Burn Unit, Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Medical Faculty, Erciyes University, Kayseri, Turkey; ‡Burn Unit, Clinic of General Surgery, Sanliurfa Mehmet Akif Inan Training and Research Hospital, Sanliurfa, Turkey; and §Department of Pathology, Medical Faculty, Erciyes University, Kayseri, Turkey.
    Early tangential excision of the burn wound is essential for removal of necrotic tissue and promotion of burn wound healing process. However, the depth of the burn wound is not easily assessed during the tangential excision performed by hand-held dermatomes, and it may be possible to excise unburned vital dermis unnecessarily, which aids in primary epithelization of the burn wound by adnexal structures. We herein present early clinical results of steel wool-aided dermabrasion in patients with deep partial-thickness burns. Read More

    Effect of Carbon Dioxide Facial Therapy on Skin Oxygenation.
    J Drugs Dermatol 2015 Sep;14(9):976-80
    Background: Recently popularized in the field of cosmetic dermatology, subcutaneous carbon dioxide (CO2) injections have been shown to improve the skin's appearance by augmenting oxygen delivery and thereby aiding cellular metabolism and neocollagenesis. However, they carry several risks and cannot be used on the entire face, leaving them best suited for the treatment of localized skin concerns. To combat these issues, a less invasive CO2 facial suited for full-face treatment has been developed, though its efficacy in oxygenating the skin has not been thoroughly investigated. Read More
