Acne treatment with a 1,450 nm wavelength laser and cryogen spray cooling
A laser with a wavelength in the mid‐IR range targeting the depth in skin where sebaceous glands are located in combination with cryogen spray cooling was evaluated for treatment of acne. In thisExpand
Laser treatment of traumatic scars with an emphasis on ablative fractional laser resurfacing: consensus report.
The consensus is that laser treatment, particularly ablative fractional resurfacing, deserves a prominent role in future scar treatment paradigms, with the possible inclusion of early intervention for contracture avoidance and assistance with wound healing. Expand
Optimal pulse durations for the treatment of leg telangiectasias with a neodymium YAG laser
Leg veins can be effectively treated with lasers. However, the optimal pulse duration for small leg veins has not been established in human studies with a Nd:YAG laser.
Why does carbon dioxide resurfacing work? A review.
This article is intended to update the physician on laser skin resurfacing based on the broadest review of the current literature, and proceeds from a discussion of initial laser-tissue interactions, such as collagen denaturation, to examination of long-term biological sequelae. Expand
Nonablative skin remodeling: Selective dermal heating with a mid‐infrared laser and contact cooling combination
This work investigated the clinical and microscopic changes produced by a mid‐infrared laser coupled with a contact cooling device to allow for cosmetic enhancement without loss of the epidermis. Expand
Theoretical considerations in laser hair removal.
An overview of hair anatomy and physiology is presented followed by a mathematically nonrigorous review of tissue optics and thermal responses to laser irradiation. Expand
Intense pulsed light and laser treatment of facial telangiectasias and dyspigmentation: some theoretical and practical comparisons.
With an optimal set of parameters, IPLs and lasers are comparable in the treatment of vascular and pigmented lesions with respect to treatment efficiency and safety. Expand
Nonablative laser skin remodeling.
This review addresses the rationales for therapy, specific devices, and study outcomes for nonablative skin remodeling. Expand
Laser treatment of leg veins: Physical mechanisms and theoretical considerations
A discussion of laser treatment of leg veins is based on a review of the literature, theoretical analysis, and the clinical experiences of the authors. Theoretical computations are discussed withinExpand
The Effects of Autologous Platelet Gel on Wound Healing
It is shown that autologous platelet gel can influence wound healing by stimulating an intense inflammatory process that leads to highly significant increases in the production of extracellular matrices and granulation tissue. Expand
