Somatomedin-C is present in human and other animal wound fluids. Somatomedin-C has previously been shown to be synthesized by fibroblasts. Our data shows that at least part of the wound fluid somatomedin-C comes from local wound synthesis. This somatomedin-C has the capability of acting as an autocrine in further stimulating the proliferation of(More)
BACKGROUND A new method for treating facial rhytides and acne scars with nonablative laser and light source techniques has recently been introduced. Given the inherent limitations of photographic and clinical evaluation to assess subtle changes in rhytides and surface topography, a new noninvasive objective assessment is required to accurately assess the(More)
OBJECTIVES To quantitatively assess improvement in acne scarring after a series of nonablative laser treatments and to determine efficacy at 1-, 3-, and 6-month follow-up after treatment. DESIGN Before-after trial of consecutively selected patients. SETTING Private practice at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, New York. PATIENTS Eleven(More)
A new method for treating facial rhytides and acne scars with nonablative laser and light source techniques has recently been introduced. Given the inherent limitations of photographic and clinical evaluation to assess subtle changes in rhytides and surface topography, new noninvasive, objective instruments were used to accurately assess the outcome of(More)
BACKGROUND Aluminum oxide crystal microdermabrasion has recently become popular for facial rejuvenation. Although it is a widely used technique with perceptible benefits, the clinical efficacy on photodamaged skin has yet to be established. OBJECTIVE To measure and quantify the effect of microdermabrasion on photodamaged skin. METHODS Ten subjects(More)
This study evaluates the efficacy and tolerability of an investigational study cream composed of 3 ingredients (green and white teas, mangosteen, and pomegranate extract), Vitaphenol Skin Cream (La Jolla Spa MD, La Jolla CA), as compared to a placebo cream in rejuvenating facial skin. Twenty healthy females between the ages of 35 and 65 with demonstrable(More)
BACKGROUND Laser resurfacing is a popular procedure to improve the physical signs of photoaging. In addition to improvements in treatment modalities, optimizing posttreatment regimens will enhance patient care. OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to evaluate the efficacy of two forms of wound care for the face after laser abrasion. METHODS Forty-two patients(More)
