BACKGROUND Nonablative lasers have been widely used to improve photodamaged skin, although the mechanism underlying dermal collagen remodeling remains unclear. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects and the molecular mechanisms of long-pulse neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser irradiation on dermal collagen remodeling in association with different pulse durations. MATERIAL AND METHODS Five hairless mice were pretreated with ultraviolet B irradiation for 8 weeks. The dorsal… CONTINUE READING
