The aim of this study was to compare clinical characteristics, severity, and pattern of collateral network involvement associated with development of truncal (systematized) versus diffuse (non-systematized) VVs in a large series of patients undergoing endovascular laser photothermolysis
for CVI in a single center.
This process is called photothermolysis
and heat energy is used to treat the wide variety of disease conditions.
Another technology being evaluated for fat removal is selective photothermolysis
, a concept developed at Massachusetts General Hospital in 1983.
Methemoglobin formation during laser induced photothermolysis
of vascular skin lesions.
Hypertrichotic Becker's nevi treated with combination l,550nm non-ablative fractional photothermolysis
and laser hair removal.
[91,92] Non-selective destructive argon and carbon dioxide laser therapy has been superseded by advanced laser technologies that rely on the concept of selective photothermolysis
.  These produce preferential and minimal injury to pigment-containing structures by using wavelengths that provide selective absorption and pulse duration less than or equal to the time taken for the heat to dissipate from the target tissue to surrounding structures.
This result is in obtained with that of previous studies on the photothermolysis
resurfacing C[O.sub.2] fractional laser in atrophic acne scars.
: Precise microsurgery by selective absorption of pulsed radiation.
Fractional laser photothermolysis
for treatment of facial wrinkles in Asians.
Laser medical cosmetology system for the treatment of the face and body, combining the functions of IPL (intensive pulsed phototherapy, photoepilation), non-ablative laser photothermolysis
, laser and photocoagulation
of glioblastoma stem-like cells targeted by carbon nanotubes conjugated with CD133 monoclonal antibody," Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine, vol.
Based on the principle of photothermolysis
, it eliminates coagulated cells, introduces new cells and stimulates collagen.
