Fractional photothermolysis: Current and future applications.
Fractional photothermolysis: A novel aesthetic laser surgery modality.
Is non-ablative 1550-nm fractional photothermolysis
an effective modality to treat melasma?
: To determine the efficacy of fractional photothermolysis
in striae distensae, 22 women with striae distensae were treated with two sessions each of fractional photothermolysis
at a pulse energy of 30 mJ, a density level of 6, and eight passes at intervals of 4 weeks and response to treatment was assessed by comparing pre- and post-treatment clinical photography and skin biopsy samples.
A hybrid technique called ablative fractional photothermolysis
creates tiny columns of ablation, while leaving the surrounding untreated tissue available as a reservoir for rapid healing.
Fraxel gets its name from fractional photothermolysis
, which means that with every treatment, the area treated is 15 to 25 per cent of the surface area of the skin, depending on whether the patient has milder or deeper wrinkles and lines.
Dermatologists and surgeons from Europe, North America, the Middle East, and China discuss the history of lasers in the field; laser principles, tissue reactions, and safety; applications for ablative skin resurfacing, fractional photothermolysis
, vascular and benign pigmented lesions, tattoo and hair removal, photoaging, scars, skin tightening, special considerations for darker-skinned patients, and at-home devices; and non-laser technologies and light-based systems like intense pulsed light, light-emitting diodes, and photodynamic therapy.
Finally, an emerging treatment option for melasma appears to be fractional photothermolysis
Reliant's new approach is based on the evolving science of fractional photothermolysis
(FP), developed by Drs.
The treatment of melasma with fractional photothermolysis
: A pilot study.
Clinical trial of a laser device called fractional photothermolysis
system for acne scars.
is a novel nonablative laser technique for facial rejuvenation which produces a distinctive thermal damage model characterized by multiple columns of thermal damage, known as microthermal treatment zones (MTZs), 50-70u m wide, surrounded by untreated tissue.
