The spectrum of laser skin resurfacing: nonablative, fractional, and ablative laser resurfacing.
Neither nonablative nor fractional resurfacing produces results comparable to ablative laser skin resurfacing, but both have become much more popular than the latter because the risks of treatment are limited in the face of acceptable improvement. Expand
Acne scarring: a classification system and review of treatment options.
A descriptive, simple, universally applicable acne scar classification system that includes 3 scar types: icepick, rolling, and boxcar is proposed that enables the physician to more precisely identify scar subtypes. Expand
Low‐Level Laser Therapy for Wound Healing: Mechanism and Efficacy
Good clinical studies that correlate cellular effects and biologic processes are needed to better understand the utility of LLLT in cutaneous wound healing, and future studies should be well-controlled investigations with rational selection of lasers and treatment parameters. Expand
Leg ulcers.
The pathogenesis, clinical features, and management of these types of leg ulcers are emphasized in this review. Expand
Selective photothermolysis of cutaneous pigmentation by Q-switched Nd: YAG laser pulses at 1064, 532, and 355 nm.
The action spectrum for threshold response was consistent with mechanisms implied by selective photothermolysis, and may be useful for consideration of treatment for cutaneous pigmentation abnormalities or unwanted follicular pigmentation, or both. Expand
Laser skin resurfacing.
The zone of thermal damage can be reduced by applying the principle of selective photo thermolysis, 8 which states that selective heating can be achieved by preferential laser light absorption andExpand
Cutaneous medicine and surgery : self assessment and review
This chapter discusses cutaneous medicine and surgery in terms offundamental information, diseases of the skin, and how to treat them. Expand
Keloids and hypertrophic scars: review and treatment strategies.
Clinical, histopathological, and biochemical features of keloids and hypertrophic scars, as well as treatment guidelines, are discussed. Expand
Treatment of tattoos with a picosecond alexandrite laser: a prospective trial.
The picosecond 755-nm alexandrite laser is a safe and very effective procedure for removing tattoo pigment and all patients were satisfied or extremely satisfied with the treatment. Expand
Randomized Sham-Controlled Trial to Evaluate the Safety and Effectiveness of a High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound Device for Noninvasive Body Sculpting
Treatment with this high-intensity focused ultrasound device reduced waist circumference and was generally well tolerated for noninvasive body sculpting. Expand
