Intense pulsed light and laser treatment of facial telangiectasias and dyspigmentation: some theoretical and practical comparisons.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE A comparative overview is presented, both theoretical and clinical, for intense pulsed light (IPL) and laser treatment of facial telangiectasias and pigmented lesions. Expand
A pilot study of ICG laser therapy of acne vulgaris: Photodynamic and photothermolysis treatment
The near‐infrared (NIR) laser radiation due to its high penetration depth is widely used in phototherapy. In application to skin appendages, a high selectivity of laser treatment is needed to preventExpand
Preclinical comparison of superpulse thulium fiber laser and a holmium:YAG laser for lithotripsy
Purpose A superpulse (500 W peak power) thulium fiber laser operating at a 1940 nm wavelength, suitable for lithotripsy, has recently been developed. The goal of this study was to compare stoneExpand
Extended theory of selective photothermolysis
We present a new theory of selective thermal damage of non‐uniformly pigmented structures in biological tissues. Spatial separation of the heavily pigmented areas and the target requires limitationExpand
Micro‐fractional ablative skin resurfacing with two novel erbium laser systems
Fractional ablation offers the potential benefits of full‐surface ablative skin resurfacing while minimizing adverse effects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety, damage profile, andExpand
Laser treatment of enamel and dentine by different Er lasers
The results of primary comparative investigation of possible application of lasers based on four different Er-doped crystals (YAG, YLF, YSGG, YAP) are presented. The influence of laser wavelength andExpand
Optical properties of hair shafts estimated using the digital video microscopic system and inverse Monte Carlo method
A color-camera-based technique was used for evaluation of reflectance and transmittance of the human hair shafts. The inverse Monte Carlo method was used for estimation of hair optical properties -Expand
Contact cooling of the skin.
Skin precooling can be used to reduce epidermal thermal damage in laser procedures (such as hair removal) where the target structures are located up to several millimetres below the skin surface. WeExpand
Low-intensity indocyanine-green laser phototherapy of acne vulgaris: pilot study.
Near infrared (NIR) diode laser low-intensity (soft) phototherapy with the topical application of indocyanine green (ICG) has been suggested for treatment of acne vulgaris. Twelve volunteers withExpand
Design and evaluation of a novel portable erythema‐melanin‐meter
Objective evaluation of the pigmentation index (PI) and the eythema index (EI) of human skin is a prerequisite for successful optimization of laser‐ and intense‐pulsed‐light (IPL)‐based treatmentExpand
