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

Physical means of stratum corneum barrier manipulation to enhance transdermal drug delivery.

Curr Drug Deliv 2015 ;12(2):122-38

Department of Pharmaceutics, GITAM Institute of Pharmacy, GITAM University, Gandhi Nagar Campus, Rushikonda, Visakhapatnam-530045, Andhra Pradesh, India.

Since the approval of first transdermal patch (Transderm Scop(®)) containing scopolamine in 1979, the improvement in systemic drug delivery through skin remains incremental. The traditional methods based on passive diffusion of drug molecules in to the skin are unable to deliver macromolecules, such as peptides, proteins, DNA and vaccines, due to the barrier properties of stratum corneum (SC). During the course of approximately 35 years, the focuses are not only to overcome the above barrier property of the skin but also the safety, accuracy and patient compliance aspect of the traditional methods.

Optical clearing in photoacoustic flow cytometry.

Biomed Opt Express 2013 27;4(12):3030-41. Epub 2013 Nov 27.

Phillips Classic Laser and Nanomedicine Laboratories, Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, 4301 W. Markham St., Little Rock, AR 72205 USA.

Clinical applications of photoacoustic (PA) flow cytometry (PAFC) for detection of circulating tumor cells in deep blood vessels are hindered by laser beam scattering, that result in loss of PAFC sensitivity and resolution. We demonstrate biocompatible and rapid optical clearing (OC) of skin to minimize light scattering and thus, increase optical resolution and sensitivity of PAFC. OC effect was achieved in 20 min by sequent skin cleaning, microdermabrasion, and glycerol application enhanced by massage and sonophoresis. Read More

A novel approach to structural facial volume replacement.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2013 Apr 29;37(2):266-76. Epub 2013 Jan 29.

Department of Dermatology, Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell University, 911 Park Avenue, Suite 1A, New York, NY 10075, USA.

Unlabelled: Improved understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the aging face has laid the foundation for adopting an earlier and more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation, shifting the focus from individual wrinkle treatment and lift procedures to a holistic paradigm that considers the entire face and its structural framework. This article presents an overview of a comprehensive method to address facial aging. The key components to the reported strategy for improving facial cosmesis include, in addition to augmentation of volume loss, protection with sunscreens and antioxidants; promotion of epidermal cell turnover with techniques such as superficial chemical peels; microlaser peels and microdermabrasion; collagen stimulation and remodeling via light, ultrasound, or radiofrequency (RF)-based methods; and muscle control with botulinum toxin.
