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

A randomized, single-blind, study evaluating a 755-nm picosecond pulsed Alexandrite laser vs. a non-ablative 1927-nm fractionated thulium laser for the treatment of facial photopigmentation and aging.

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2018 Jul 18:1-6. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

b Sadick Dermatology , Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College , New York , NY , USA.

Background: Laser toning is one of the most popular strategies to treat facial photopigmentation and aging. Several laser modalities, including fractional non-ablative, Q-switched (QS) lasers and new generation picosecond lasers have been used for this indication. However, there is paucity of head to head comparisons of older generation of lasers with new ones. Read More

Comparative effects of various absorbable threads in a rat model.

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2018 Jul 6:1-5. Epub 2018 Jul 6.

a Department of Dermatology , Korea University College of Medicine , Seoul , Republic of Korea.

Background: Conventional procedures including botulinum toxin and filler injections have their limitations in improving deep wrinkles and decreasing tissue laxity, and possess the propensity for vascular accidents. Absorbable thread is a recently commercialized field, but there is little evidence on comparative superiority.

Objectives: We observed the effects of polydiaxanone (PDO) threads with different number of strands in relation to collagen production and histopathology in a rat model. Read More

c Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Biology Research Center, International St. Mary's Hospital , Catholic Kwandong University College of Medicine , Incheon , Korea.

Background: Broadband light (BBL) devices irradiate photons of different wavelength to induce photothermal reactions on various aging-related chromophores.

Objectives: To evaluate three BBL treatment settings for skin tightening in Asian patients.

Methods: A total of 27 patients underwent three sessions of BBL treatment via (1) an 800-nm cutoff filter using a static operation technique and a 695-nm cutoff filter using a constant motion technique (group 1, N = 9), (2) an 800-nm cutoff filter using a constant motion technique (group 2, N = 9), and (3) a 590-nm cutoff filter using a constant motion technique (group 3, N = 9).

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2018 Jun 8:1-5. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

b Drexel University College of Medicine , Philadelphia, PA , USA.

Purpose: To examine the outcomes of sexual function in postmenopausal women and women with a history of breast cancer treated with endocrine therapy who were experiencing the symptoms of GSM for which they were treated with fractional microablative CO laser.

Materials And Methods: From July 2015 to October 2016, a retrospective chart review of women who underwent fractional microablative CO laser therapy (MonaLisa Touch, DEKA) for GSM was conducted. Several validated questionnaires were used to assess changes in symptoms and sexual function including the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), the Wong-Baker Faces Scale (WBFS), and the Female Sexual Distress Scale-Revised (FSDSR).

The rapid effect of pulsed dye laser on demodex density of facial skin.

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2018 Jun 8:1-4. Epub 2018 Jun 8.

a Kayseri Health Training and Research Center, Dermatology Clinic , Health Sciences University , Kayseri , Turkey.

Background: Recently, treatment with acaricides, which is aimed at reducing excessive proliferation of demodex mites, has gained popularity due to its providing a significant improvement in the symptoms of diseases, such as rosacea, seborrhoeic dermatitis, and perioral dermatitis. The effect of IPL on demodex mites was reported in skin biopsy specimens in three patients; however, to the best of our knowledge, no study exists to date, which evaluates the effect of pulsed dye laser (PDL) on demodex density (Dd) in larger patient group. We aim here in to observe the Dd before and after PDL therapy with two different skin biopsy techniques. Read More

Introduction: The potential of a dual wavelength picosecond laser, as a new modality for treating photoaged skin, was investigated in this clinical study.

Material And Methods: Subjects with bilateral mild-to-moderate facial wrinkling received four picosecond laser treatments, at 3-8 weeks apart, with a double-pass of both 532-nm and 1064-nm split-beam handpieces. Blinded evaluation of clinical photography, by two independent physicians, using the Fitzpatrick Elastosis Scale, was performed at 12 weeks after the fourth treatment. Read More

Laser is the most efficient and popular method in hair removal. The most common side effects of laser assisted hair removal are pain, erythema, edema, hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, blistering, crusting, erosions, purpura, folliculitis, and scar formation ( 1 ). Herein, for the first time we describe a case of lichen sclerosus (LS) following hair removal with long pulsed 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser therapy. Read More

J Cosmet Laser Ther 2019 14;21(1):14-16. Epub 2018 May 14.

a Department of Plastic Surgery , Tongren Hospital of Wuhan University (Wuhan Third Hospital) , Wuhan , China.

Auricular keloids are common following ear piercing, infection, trauma, burns, or spontaneously, and they are highly resistant for treatment and are followed by severe cosmetic problems, especially for patients with bulky auricular keloids. The risk of recurrence and the need to return to the normal anatomy of external ear following resection is a challenge to the plastic surgeon. The authors present their experience of treating bulky auricular keloids with surgical excision, followed by immediate postoperative radiotherapy and intralesional steroid injection. Read More
