21. Fragility of epidermis: acne and post-procedure lesional skin. (PubMed)

in restoration of fragile skin caused by the acne topical retinoid treatment adapalene 0.1% gel, by reducing transepidermal water loss and improving skin hydration, as well as reducing the side-effects such as skin irritation that are frequently associated with topical retinoids. Additionally, dermo-cosmetic products were found to accelerate wound closure following skin damage in a laser ablation model and reduced the duration of post-procedural side-effects such as itching and burning.© 2017 European (...) Fragility of epidermis: acne and post-procedure lesional skin. 'Fragile skin', or skin with lower resistance to aggressors, can be broadly classified into four causal categories: constitutional (age-dependent or associated with specific vulnerable locations on the body, e.g. eyelids), pathological (related to disease), circumstantial (related to environmental or internal factors, e.g. stress) and iatrogenic (caused by medical interventions or treatments).

Summary of consideration and rationale for MSAC’s advice MSAC noted that laser scar treatment works on the basis of remodelling skin by creating microscopic photo-thermal injury (thermolysis) to specific target scarred skin areas. Most patients receive a series of three to six CO 2 AFL procedures, at a minimum treatment interval (...) ) listing of carbon dioxide ablative fractional laser (CO 2 AFL) resurfacing for burn scar treatment was received from Burns Unit of Concord Repatriation General Hospital (CRGH) by the Department of Health.

Skin remodelling from thermolysis following laser treatment shares the same features as wound repair and skin morphogenesis. 2. MSAC’s

29. Combination therapy in skin of color including injectables, laser, and light devices. (PubMed)

Combination therapy in skin of color including injectables, laser, and light devices. With the rapid increase in patients seeking cosmetic treatments, the variation in responses of lightly pigmented skin versus darkly pigmented skin has become increasingly apparent. Despite extensive treatment options in patients with skin of color, there is a paucity of well-designed studies performed on this patient population. The lack of research is concerning, as it is well documented that patients (...) with darker skin types are at an increased risk of adverse events when treated with many of the available modalities used in cosmetic procedures. Fortunately, by combining a variety of treatments, these risks may be abrogated, and combination treatments may be a promising regimen for a wide variety of cosmetic complaints.

Comparative study of wound healing in rat skin following incision with a novel picosecond infrared laser (PIRL) and different surgical modalities As a result of wound healing the original tissue is replaced by dysfunctional scar tissue. Reduced tissue damage during surgical procedures beneficially affects the size of the resulting scar and overall healing time. Thus the choice of a particular surgical instrument can have a significant influence on the postoperative wound healing. To overcome (...) these problems of wound healing we applied a novel picosecond infrared laser (PIRL) system to surgical incisions. Previous studies indicated that negligible thermal, acoustic, or ionization stress effects to the surrounding tissue results in a superior wound healing.Using the PIRL system as a surgical scalpel, we performed a prospective wound healing study on rat skin and assessed its final impact on scar formation compared to the electrosurgical device and cold steel. As for the incisions, 6 full-thickness

31. Quantitative monitoring of laser-treated engineered skin using optical coherence tomography (PubMed)

Quantitative monitoring of laser-treated engineered skin using optical coherence tomography Nowadays, laser therapy is a common method for treating various dermatological troubles such as acne and wrinkles because of its efficient and immediate skin enhancement. Although laser treatment has become a routine procedure in medical and cosmetic fields, the prevention of side-effects, such as hyperpigmentation, redness and burning, still remains a critical issue that needs to be addressed. In order (...) to reduce the side-effects while attaining efficient therapeutic outcomes, it is essential to understand the light-skin interaction through evaluation of physiological changes before and after laser therapy. In this study, we introduce a quantitative tissue monitoring method based on optical coherence tomography (OCT) for the evaluation of tissue regeneration after laser irradiation. To create a skin injury model, we applied a fractional CO2 laser on a customized engineered skin model, which

34. Interventions for infantile haemangiomas of the skin. (PubMed)

Interventions for infantile haemangiomas of the skin. Infantile haemangiomas (previously known as strawberry birthmarks) are soft, raised swellings of the skin that occur in 3% to 10% of infants. These benign vascular tumours are usually uncomplicated and tend to regress spontaneously. However, when haemangiomas occur in high-risk areas, such as near the eyes, throat, or nose, impairing their function, or when complications develop, intervention may be necessary. This is an update of a Cochrane (...) Review first published in 2011.To assess the effects of interventions for the management of infantile haemangiomas in children.We updated our searches of the following databases to February 2017: the Cochrane Skin Group Specialised Register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, PsycINFO, AMED, LILACS, and CINAHL.

The first line of defense against CA typically involves patient-administered topical treatment; however, the comparative effectiveness of such treatments has not been established, with some evidence suggesting that surgical techniques may be more effective in clearance rates than topical treatment.
