LED home-use is now widely spread. In dermatology, numerous reports have stated their results for many indications: wound healing process, rejuvenation, acne and, of course, photodynamic therapy. Nevertheless, fluence, pulse duration and color of the LED are so variable as it is difficult to bring well codified results. But how should you not be interested(More)
Conventional PDT (c-PDT) is a widely used and approved non-invasive treatment for actinic keratosis (AK). Recent clinical, histological and immunohistochemical observations have shown that c-PDT with methyl aminolevulinate (MAL) may also partially reverse the signs of photodamage. However, pain and the need for special light source equipment are limiting(More)
Botulinum neurotoxins are the most popular non-surgical treatments for aesthetic indications, but there is uncertainty about whether certain formulations are comparable in efficacy and safety and can be substituted for one another by a simple one to one dose conversion ratio. An expert panel of French practitioners was convened to establish a consensus on(More)
BACKGROUND Full-face rejuvenation with dermal fillers in patients with multiple aesthetic indications is rarely studied. OBJECTIVE To assess whether a new range of hyaluronic acid filler is suitable for full-face rejuvenation and to evaluate efficacy, safety, and patient satisfaction. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this 6-month study, participants could(More)
BACKGROUND Emervel consists of a range of 5 hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers (Touch, Classic, Lips, Deep, and Volume), with a fixed HA concentration (20 mg/mL), and various degrees of cross-linking and calibration. OBJECTIVES To describe the current use of Emervel fillers in France. METHODS Prospective multicenter, cross-sectional, real-practice,(More)
The use in dermatology of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) continues to be surrounded by controversy. This is due mainly to poor knowledge of the physicochemical phases of a wide range of devices that are difficult to compare to one another, and also to divergences between irrefutable published evidence either at the level of in vitro studies or at the cellular(More)
BACKGROUND Skin roughness, color change, wrinkles and skin laxity are the main characteristics of aging skin. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons look for a treatment that will provide both epidermal resurfacing for the improvement of skin roughness and deep volumetric heating that will trigger collagen remodeling in the dermis to reduce wrinkles and skin(More)
BACKGROUND The periorbital region is a challenging area for injectable filler. Overcorrection and/or the use of unsuitable fillers may lead to unwanted results. As evidence for this region is limited, most physicians follow a trial and error approach. OBJECTIVE Assess the efficacy, patient satisfaction, and safety of the HA E filler range in periorbital(More)
Intense pulsed lights have improved a lot these past few years and offer better efficiency as well as new treatment fields. They have become the first choice for numerous practitioners' offices. We are mainly describing in this article, new technical developments: electrical (square pulse, pulse repeatability...), optics (filters, spectrum, calibration,(More)
