3441. A controlled evaluation of dermabrasion versus CO2 laser resurfacing for the treatment of perioral wrinkles. (Abstract)

A controlled evaluation of dermabrasion versus CO2 laser resurfacing for the treatment of perioral wrinkles. Facial skin treatments with laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, and chemical peels were responsible for a significant portion of the 2.7 million cosmetic procedures performed in 1998. Perioral wrinkles are a common problem for which plastic surgical consultation is obtained. The aim of this study was to compare and quantify the advantages and disadvantages of laser resurfacing versus (...) dermabrasion in the treatment of perioral wrinkles. Twenty female patients provided informed consent and participated in the study. Half of the perioral area was treated with dermabrasion and half was treated with the UltraPulse CO2 laser. The two procedures were compared using high-quality photographs; a biophysical evaluation of skin color, hydration, and mechanical properties; and patient evaluation of outcomes. Photographs were evaluated by 10 board-certified plastic surgeons who were blinded

Lower eyelid CO(2) laser rejuvenation: a randomized, prospective clinical study. The effect of transconjunctival blepharoplasty alone compared with transconjunctival blepharoplasty and CO(2) laser skin resurfacing on lower lid bulging and wrinkles was examined.Randomized clinical trial.Forty-four subjects, including 13 men and 31 women.Subjects were prospectively randomly assigned into two groups: (1) transconjunctival blepharoplasty with immediate CO(2) laser resurfacing or (2 (...) ) transconjunctival blepharoplasty with CO(2) laser resurfacing 2 months later. Standardized photographs were taken before and 2 months after each procedure. A trained, masked observer graded the photographs.Bulging and wrinkles of the medial, central, and lateral portions of the lower lid were scored and compared at specified end points.Transconjunctival blepharoplasty alone resulted in an improvement in lower lid bulging in 92% of subjects, whereas lower lid wrinkling worsened in 46%. When transconjunctival

3444. A new laser pain threshold model detects a faster onset of action from a liquid formulation of 1 g paracetamol than an equivalent tablet formulation. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A new laser pain threshold model detects a faster onset of action from a liquid formulation of 1 g paracetamol than an equivalent tablet formulation. To discover whether a new infra-red laser method could detect a change in pain threshold after as mild an analgesic as paracetamol and whether an effervescent liquid formulation produced a faster onset of action than tablets.This double-blind, placebo controlled randomized study used a portable, infra-red laser to measure "first pain" thresholds (...) on the nondominant forearm in 12 normal volunteers before and after 1 g of paracetamol or placebo. The mean of six recordings was determined three times before dosing, the first being used as a familiarization procedure, and 14 times after dosing.We detected a small (2%), statistically significant difference in pain threshold between a liquid formulation of paracetamol and placebo at 30 and 60 min (P = 0.004 and P = 0.001), but not between tablets and placebo. Liquid also increased the threshold significantly

3446. Quantitative evaluation of nonablative laser technology. (Abstract)

Quantitative evaluation of nonablative laser technology. A new method for treating facial rhytides and acne scars with nonablative laser and light source techniques has recently been introduced. Given the inherent limitations of photographic and clinical evaluation to assess subtle changes in rhytides and surface topography, new noninvasive, objective instruments were used to accurately assess the outcome of these procedures. This study measures and objectively quantifies facial skin by using 2 (...) novel, noninvasive measuring systems after 3 to 5 treatment sessions with the 1,064 nm QS Nd:YAG laser in patients with photodamage and acne scarring. One system measures the skin surface topography and the other characterizes the biomechanical properties of the skin. Patients undergoing facial rejuvenation procedures were analyzed before and after therapy with a 32 x 32 mm in vivo three-dimensional microtopography imaging system (PRIMOS, GFM, Teltow, Germany). The imaging system projects light

3447. Full-face carbon dioxide laser resurfacing in the management of a patient with the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. (Abstract)

Full-face carbon dioxide laser resurfacing in the management of a patient with the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. Multiple surgical procedures are often a source of discomfort, pain, and disfigurement for patients with the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (NBCCS).The patient with NBCCS had approximately 45 identifiable basal cell carcinomas on her face. Multiple Mohs surgeries were performed to remove the largest tumors. A tumor-free plane was not achieved in several lesions despite (...) carcinomas in the patients with NBCCS. It allows treatment of all the facial lesions in a single session and minimizes suffering resulting from repeated surgical procedures. Additionally, the layer of skin damaged by ultraviolet radiation is removed, allowing for easier management after resurfacing.
