The optics of human skin.
An integrated review of the transfer of optical radiation into human skin is presented, aimed at developing useful models for photomedicine. The component chromophores of epidermis and stratum
Fractional Photothermolysis: A New Concept for Cutaneous Remodeling Using Microscopic Patterns of Thermal Injury
We introduce and clinically examine a new concept of skin treatment called fractional photothermolysis (FP), achieved by applying an array of microscopic treatment zones (MTZ) of thermal injury to
In vivo confocal scanning laser microscopy of human skin: melanin provides strong contrast.
TLDR
In vivo confocal microscopy potentially offers dermatologists a diagnostic tool that is instant and entirely non-invasive compared to conventional histopathology.
Spectral character of sunlight modulates photosynthesis of previtamin D3 and its photoisomers in human skin.
TLDR
It is concluded that the spectral character of natural sunlight has a profound effect on the photochemistry of 7-dehydrocholesterol in human skin.
In vivo confocal scanning laser microscopy of human skin II: advances in instrumentation and comparison with histology.
TLDR
A small, portable, and robust confocal microscope that is capable of imaging normal and abnormal skin morphology and dynamic processes in vivo, in both laboratory and clinical settings is built.
Photosynthesis of previtamin D3 in human skin and the physiologic consequences.
TLDR
These processes suggest a unique mechanism for the synthesis, storage, and slow, steady release of vitamin D3 from the skin into the circulation.
ERYTHEMA AND MELANOGENESIS ACTION SPECTRA OF NORMAL HUMAN SKIN *
TLDR
The shape and magnitude of the action spectra are grossly consistent with a mechanism in which DNA is the primary chromophore initiating the response pathways for wavelengths less than 313 nm, which is of practical significance in predicting skin response to sources of ultraviolet radiation.
Topical ALA-photodynamic therapy for the treatment of acne vulgaris.
TLDR
There was clinical and statistically significant clearance of inflammatory acne by aminolevulinic acid plus red light, for at least 20 wk after multiple treatments and 10 wK after a single treatment, in an open-label prospective human study of acne vulgaris.
