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
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
The role of laser tunnels in laser‐assisted lipolysis
Laser‐assisted lipolysis (LAL) devices are used as adjuncts to liposuction that create laser tunnels to heat the adipose and connective tissue. Available systems vary significantly across choice ofExpand
Evaluation of cooling methods for laser dermatology
Skin cooling is used to protect the epidermis in a variety of laser dermatology procedures, including leg vein treatment, hair removal, and port wine stain removal. Spray and contact cooling are theExpand
Lattice of optical islets: a novel treatment modality in photomedicine
A majority of photothermal applications of laser and non-laser light sources in medicine (in particular, in dermatology) are based on the paradigm of (extended) selective photothermolysis. However,Expand
Characterization of an optimized light source and comparison to pulsed dye laser for superficial and deep vessel clearance
An arc lamp‐based device providing optimized spectrum and pulse shape was characterized and compared with two pulsed dye laser (PDL) systems using a vascular phantom. Safety and effectiveness forExpand
Semi‐Automated method of analysis of horizontal histological sections of skin for objective evaluation of fractional devices
The treatment of skin with fractional devices creates columns of micro‐ablation or micro‐denaturation depending on the device. Since the geometric profiles of thermal damage depend on the treatmentExpand
Evaluation of a fractional laser with optical compression pins
Non‐ablative fractional lasers have been used in skin rejuvenation procedures with some success. In general, the optimum area coverage and depths of the fractional thermal injury zones depend on theExpand
Compact 1J mid-IR Cr:ZnSe Laser
We report a record output energies of pulsed Cr:ZnSe lasers operating at 2.65 um. The maximum output energy of the Cr:ZnSe laser was demonstrated to be more than 1.1 J for 7 ms pulses.
Self-adaptation Optical Effects in Photothermal Treatment of Skin Structures
Photothermal effects form basis for many uses of optical energy to treat various medical conditions. With an increase in the optical power density, thermally induced phase transitions and chemicalExpand
