BACKGROUND AND AIMS The application of light-emitting diodes in a number of clinical fields is expanding rapidly since the development in the late 1990s of the NASA LED. Wound healing is one field where low level light therapy with LEDs (LED-LLLT) has attracted attention for both accelerating wound healing and controlling sequelae. The present study(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Alopecia is one of the most common dermatological problems in the elderly; however, current therapies for it are limited by low efficacy and undesirable side effects. Although clinical reports on fractional laser treatment for various alopecia types are increasing, the exact mechanism remains to be clarified. The purposes of this(More)
BACKGROUND Pinhole method has been used to treat various types of scars and dermal tumors by making multiple small holes in target tissues of the deep dermis using an ablative 10,600-nm carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. OBJECTIVES We prospectively investigated the efficacy and safety of using a CO2 laser to treat periorbital syringomas via the pinhole method.(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Both ablative and non-ablative fractional lasers have been applied to various uncommon hair disorders. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the clinical effects of fractional laser therapy on the course of primary follicular and perifollicular pathologies and subsequent hair regrowth. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective(More)
Investigations of laser- or light-assisted antibacterial and antifungal treatments have been introduced. In the present study, we investigated the antifungal activities of 1444-nm Nd:YAG lasers against onychomycosis by microbiologic analysis and scanning electron microscopy. Scraped toenails from 20 participants with mycologically confirmed onychomycosis(More)
BACKGROUND Fractionated microneedle radiofrequency (RF) devices have been reported to be effective in treatment of various dermatologic disorders. OBJECTIVES To analyze histometric changes in skin-RF interactions using a fractionated microneedle delivery system. MATERIALS AND METHODS RF energies were delivered using a fractionated microneedle device to(More)
BACKGROUND Although ablative fractional laser for the facial photodamaged skin was effective and safe, there have been only limited reports regarding the efficacy and safety of fractional Er:YAG laser treatments for photodamaged facial skin in Asians. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to assess the efficacy and safety of the Er:YAG laser (2940 nm) using the(More)
INTRODUCTION Among non-ablative devices for wrinkle reduction and skin laxity, long pulsed 1064 nm Nd:YAG laser (LPND) has considerable effectiveness. It can penetrate to deep dermis due to its longer wavelength. This study assesses the efficacy and safety of LPND applying new parameters for skin rejuvenation in Korean subjects. METHODS A prospective(More)
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-9 plays an important role in wound healing. However, the effects of non-ablative laser treatment on the expression of FGF9 have not been fully investigated. Non-ablative 1064-nm quasi-long pulsed and Q-switched Nd:YAG laser treatments were delivered to hairless mice with and without a carbon photoenhancer. For histological and(More)
