regeneration. By modulating the early inflammatory milieu and directly affecting skin structure and function, conjugated linolenic acid might therefore shorten downtime following fractionated ablative laser resurfacing of the face. Objective: To evaluate the efficacy and subject satisfaction of a topical regimen containing conjugated linolenic acid derived from pomegranate seed extract in accelerating wound healing and improving skin quality following fractionated ablative laser resurfacing of the face (...) . Materials and Methods: Thirty-four subjects were enrolled and received fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing. Subjects were randomized to use the test healing regimen (n=24) or 1% dimethicone ointment (n=10) post-procedure. The primary endpoint was the degree of erythema, edema, crusting, and exudation evaluated by a blinded clinician at post-treatment Days 1,3,7,10, 14, and 30. Secondary endpoints included a blinded evaluator assessment of the degree of wrinkling and elastosis using the Fitzpatrick

Aplasia cutis congenita as a result of interstitial laser therapy for fetal reduction in monochorionic twins: Conservative approach and outcome Monochorionic (MC) twin pregnancies are known to carry a high risk of twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) that could lead to miscarriage and perinatal death. Demise of one fetus is frequently associated with co-fetal death. Fetal reduction by interstitial laser therapy is an effective procedure to prevent this outcome, but it may be associated (...) with significant risks for both mother and fetus. Aplasia Cutis Congenita (ACC) may occur in up to 8% cases of fetal reduction by laser therapy. We report ACC in a preterm infant, a survivor of interstitial laser therapy for fetal reduction in MC pregnancy. Despite of massive skin lesions we were able to manage this case conservatively. Follow-up at 5 years of age revealed minimal scarring and no motor function limitations.Copyright © 2017 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.. All rights reserved.

163. Lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) association with cancerous lesions Full Text available with Trip Pro

Lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) association with cancerous lesions The development and use of light and lasers for medical and cosmetic procedures has increased exponentially over the past decade. This review article focuses on the incidence of reported cases of skin cancer post laser or IPL treatment. The existing evidence base of over 25 years of laser and IPL use to date has not raised any concerns regarding its long-term safety with only a few anecdotal cases of melanoma post (...) treatment over two decades of use; therefore, there is no evidence to suggest that there is a credible cancer risk. Although laser and IPL technology has not been known to cause skin cancer, this does not mean that laser and IPL therapies are without long-term risks. Light therapies and lasers to treat existing lesions and CO2 laser resurfacing can be a preventative measure against BCC and SCC tumour formation by removing photo-damaged keratinocytes and encouraged re-epithelisation from stem cells

164. A Case of Facial Partial Unilateral Lentiginosis Treated with Low-Fluence 1,064 nm Q-Switched Neodymium-Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet Laser Full Text available with Trip Pro

A Case of Facial Partial Unilateral Lentiginosis Treated with Low-Fluence 1,064 nm Q-Switched Neodymium-Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet Laser Partial unilateral lentiginosis (PUL) is an unusual pigmentary disorder characterized by numerous lentigines grouped within an area of normal skin. Although treatment is not necessary, many patients with facial PUL seek medical help for cosmetic reasons. There is no established standard treatment for PUL. Conventional lasers may cause postinflammatory (...) proposed. If appropriate measures are taken to monitor patient response during and after the procedure, low-fluence 1,064-nm QS Nd:YAG laser may achieve good cosmetic results in the treatment of PUL with a very safe and effective profile.

lesions with less induction of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation in the PIH-susceptible Asian skin, and dermal melanocytosis also respond very well to ps-laser treatment. Illustrative clinical examples from the author's experience are given.Current ps-lasers could be a revolutionary advance for laser tattoo removal but may be less effective for some specific aesthetic indications such as melasma and other cosmetic procedures. Manufacturers must make an effort to reduce the current comparatively long (...) Picosecond Laser Treatment for Tattoos and Benign Cutaneous Pigmented Lesions (Secondary publication) The selective removal of tattoos and benign cutaneous pigmented lesions with laser energy evolved rapidly with the development of the nanosecond-domain Q-switched laser (ns-laser). Recently, however, a series of picosecond-domain lasers (ps-lasers) with pulsewidths less than 1 ns has become commercially available, enabling more efficient and faster removal of pigmented lesions in the field

Histologically, degenerative changes in the hair follicles were noted immediately after laser treatment. At one month, cystic formation was seen in the hair follicles showing a strong tendency towards apoptotic cell death.With the diode laser system and at the parameters used in the present study, high depilation efficacy was seen with no significant difference between the static and dynamic (...) Static and dynamic modes of 810 nm diode laser hair removal compared: A clinical and histological study Laser hair removal has recently become a major indication. Diode lasers have become commercially available offering two modes of application: a stamping or static mode, and a dynamic mode whereby the handpiece is continuously moved across the target tissue. The present study was designed to compare the efficacy of these two approaches clinically and histologically.Twenty-five subjects

168. Exploring Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy as a Potential Tool in Mohs Micrography: A Mini Review Full Text available with Trip Pro

Exploring Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy as a Potential Tool in Mohs Micrography: A Mini Review Mohs micrographic surgery is the technique of surgically removing skin tumors by gradually excising thin layers and visualizing under a microscope till a tumor-free zone is obtained. During the surgical procedure, visible tumors are surgically removed. During the second stage, if tumor margins are clear with the positive specimen at depth, only depth cavitations need to be done without altering (...) the tumor diameter. Defining the depth during this procedure is a major challenge due to the nonexistence of proper guidelines. Using the laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technique, depth profiling can be performed precisely, preventing excessive tissue removal and reducing time consumption during the microscopic examination.
