Photorejuvenation Treatment

We have also studied the use of 20 5-ALA for AKs with the blue light source. This study looked at the role of ALA-PDT for photoaging Figs. 6.5, 6.6 . Recently, others have begun to explore new ways to revise our current mind- Fig. 6.5. a Immediately after blue light treatment. b One month after treatment Fig. 6.4. a Pretreatment. b One week after ALA-PDT treatment. c One month after ALA-PDT treatment Fig. 6.5. a Immediately after blue light treatment. b One month after treatment set on the...

Hidradeniti Suppurativa Acne Treatment

The use of ALA-PDT is not limited to the treatment of AKs, BCCs, and SCCs. PDT therapy has long been recognized as an important treatment in acne vulgaris and other disorders of the pilosebaceous glands. Recent advances have made the use of a variety of lasers and light sources combined with ALA practical for those suffering from acne vulgaris and other pilose-baceous entities. Acne vulgaris accounts for over 30 of all dermatology visits. It has been estimated that between 70 and 96 of all...

Lentigo Maligna

Labial Traumatic Scar Laser

Furthermore, in the absence of reproducible spatial thermal injury confinement, the risk of scarring and pigmentary changes is significant in the hands of inexperienced operators. The pigment-nonselective erbium and CO2 lasers can be used to remove epidermal pigment effectively because of the ability to target H2O in the epidermis. The nonspecific thermal damage leads to destruction of the lesion with denuding of the epidermis. Pigment is thus damaged as a secondary...

Mat Telangiectasia

Erythematous telangiectatic rosacea treated with pulsed dye laser only right cheek treated after radiotherapy is also easily treated Fig. 2.14 . Other lesions with a vascular component, such as angio-lymphoid hyperplasia, adenoma sebaceum, lymphangiomas Fig. 2.15 , and granuloma faciale have all been reported as successfully treated with vascular lasers. The majority of reports of these disorders have been case studies rather than controlled trials. In adenoma sebaceum, if the angio...

Photo Purpura Laser

Schematic absorption spectrum of hemoglobin Hb , Oxyhemoglobin Hbo2 and melanin Me to show absorption peak of Hb at 755 nm courtesy of Cynosure Lasers These lasers have been used in the treatment of superficial and deep small-to-medium size leg telangiectasia. Diode lasers emit light that closely matches a tertiary hemoglobin absorption peak at 915 nm. Investigators Varma and Lanigan 2000 have evaluated an 810-nm diode laser for the treatment of telangiectatic veins on the leg....
