The purpose of the trial is to compare clinical efficacy and occurrence of side effects in the treatment of photodamaged skin with Pulsed Dye Laser and Intense Pulsed Light.
The purpose of the study is to compare efficacy and adverse effects of pulsed dye laser and intense pulsed light in patients with skin telangiectasia and redness.
The researchers want to collect data on safety and efficacy of combined pulsed dye laser and rapamycin to improve fading/blanching of port wine stain birthmarks as compared to pulsed dye l...
This research study was designed to determine the effect on port wine stains (PWS) of liposomal benzoporphyrin derivative monoacid (BPD-MA) termed verteporfin (distributed for medical indi...
To evaluate efficacy and adverse effect from long-pulsed dye laser versus long-pulsed dye laser-mediated photodynamic therapy for acne vulgaris and rosacea.
Undesirable hair growth presents a significant problem for many patients. Photoepilation has become a very popular procedure in aesthetic and cosmetic practice. Among the systems used are the long pul...
Intense pulse light (IPL) has been reported to effectively treat melasma in previous studies, but an aggravation of pigmentation was noted. Fractionated IPL is a novel technique in which microsecond-d...
We investigated the first and second-order correlations of the light scattered near-resonantly by a quantum dot under excitation by a frequency comb, i.e., a periodically pulsed laser source. In contr...
The intense pulsed light (IPL) has been used for the treatment of several skin conditions(1) and in the non-ablative skin rejuvenation.(2) IPL apparatus can be easily acquired and used by general publ...
Various treatment protocols for melasma have been suggested in the previous literature, but the efficacy and safety of treatment varies according to the report.
Tunable liquid lasers with organic compounds (i.e., dye) which have a strong absorption band, used as the active medium. During emission, the dye has to be optically excited by another light source (e.g., another laser or flash lamp). The range of the emission wavelength may be anywhere from the ultraviolet to the near infrared (i.e., from 180 to 1100nm). These lasers are operated in continuous wave and pulsed modes. (UMDNS, 2005)
The coagulation of tissue by an intense beam of light, including laser (LASER COAGULATION). In the eye it is used in the treatment of retinal detachments, retinal holes, aneurysms, hemorrhages, and malignant and benign neoplasms. (Dictionary of Visual Science, 3d ed)
An optical source that emits photons in a coherent beam. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation (LASER) is brought about using devices that transform light of varying frequencies into a single intense, nearly nondivergent beam of monochromatic radiation. Lasers operate in the infrared, visible, ultraviolet, or X-ray regions of the spectrum.
A treatment modality that uses pulsed electrical currents to permeabilize cell membranes (ELECTROPORATION) and thereby enhance the uptake of chemotherapeutic agents, vaccines, or genes into the body's cells.
Using MOLECULAR BIOLOGY techniques, such as DNA SEQUENCE ANALYSIS; PULSED-FIELD GEL ELECTROPHORESIS; and DNA FINGERPRINTING, to identify, classify, and compare organisms and their subtypes.
