Treatment of Facial Photodamage and Rhytides
Using a Picosecond Pulsed Alexandrite Laser and Specifically Designed Focus Optic," David McDaniel, McDaniel Institute of Anti Aging Research, Virginia Beach, VA
RESULTS: Caffeine applied topically after UV treatment resulted in a significant decrease in UV-induced skin roughness/transverse rhytides
as assessed by treatment-blinded examiners.
Participants will learn in-depth treatment protocols for a wide range of skin conditions, including photo damage, hyperpigmentation and melasma, rosacea, acne, scars, and rhytides

Long-term prospective follow-up of botulinum toxin treatment for facial rhytides
Four patients received injections of 10-38 U for facial rhytides
Mentor Corporation (NYSE:MNT), a leading supplier of medical products for the global aesthetic market, today announced completion of the first of three Phase 3 clinical trials with its purified botulinum Type A neurotoxin (PurTox([R])) for the reduction of glabellar rhytides
The study included women with moderate photodamage and rhytides
on at least one of the following: glabellar area, nasolabial folds and crows feet (N=70).
In December 2007, the Fraxel re:pair system received the industry's only FDA 510(K) clearance for a fractional ablative laser system for treatment of wrinkles, rhytides
, furrows, fine lines, textural irregularities, pigmented lesions and vascular dyschromia.
Using the proprietary Controlled Chaos Technology (CCT), this next generation fractional CO2 laser is designed to offer a safe and innovative way to treat deep ablative indications such as resurfacing and coagulation of soft tissue, textural irregularities, fine lines, pigmented lesions, vascular dyschromia, and rhytides
