The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
Fractional lasers have become increasingly popular for treating atrophic scars, but their effectiveness is limited for deeper scars. We developed a novel technique (manual fractional thermal contraction technology, MFTCT) using an ultra-pulse CO laser and evaluated its efficacy and safety for treating atrophic facial scars.
Synthetic hair fiber implantation first achieved widespread use in the 1970s, but in 1983, the US Federal Drug Administration banned the fibers due to its complications. Currently available synthetic fibers consist of polyamide material, which has been claimed to be effective and safe. Nevertheless, its use for hair restoration is controversial because of complications such as recurrent infections; the rejection and the faster-than-anticipated loss of fibers; frequent allergic reactions; fears about carcino...
Changes induced by intrinsic and extrinsic photoaging result in signs of skin aging including altered pigmentation and wrinkles. A 3-in-1 night facial serum (NFS) was developed to treat skin aging by antioxidative and retinoid-like mechanisms.
The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) combined with noninvasive, nonenergy procedures for atrophic acne scars has shown promise. To date, there has not been a systematic review or meta-analysis of the effectiveness of this therapy.
Diabetic cutaneous ulcers are subjected to several physiological and biochemical defects, which contribute to wound chronicity and therapeutic failure. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used for stimulating tissue regeneration, and mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) have demonstrated therapeutic properties in all phases of skin regeneration in cell therapy studies.
Extrinsic skin aging caused by atmospheric pollutants is associated with a sustained inflammatory response which is a significant risk factor for lentigines and melasma.
Skin aging is characterized by moderate to severe wrinkles, laxity, roughness, and volume loss as a result of cutaneous atrophy and connective tissue degradation. Plasma rich in growth factor gel (PRGF-gel) is a novel formulation obtained from the patient's own blood that has demonstrated optimal biomechanical and bioactive properties for soft tissue restoration.
Picosecond (PS) lasers were approved by the US FDA in 2012 after being shown to remove tattoos with more success and fewer treatments compared with traditional methods. PS lasers were shown to be versatile, indicated for the treatment of lentigines, café-au-lait macules (CALMs), and acne scars and skin rejuvenation.
Vitiligo Area and Severity Index (VASI) is standing on the top of the cited and implemented scoring tools for vitiligo. However, an easily applicable and time-saving tool has been a need.
Radiofrequency equipment, including invasive fractional microneedle radiofrequency (FMR) and noninvasive fractional radiofrequency (FR), has facilitated progress in the field of active acne treatment, but clinical data are limited. This study aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of FMR and FR in the treatment of moderate-to-severe acne vulgaris.
Recently, many compounds or extracts from natural sources are used for reducing facial aging and wrinkles.
Hybrid fractional laser skin resurfacing is a procedure that combines fractional nonablative and ablative wavelengths to improve photoaging. The postoperative period involves overt skin swelling, redness, and roughness.
Establishing good rapport with patients is important during the initial consult, especially in aesthetic medicine. While experienced physicians develop expertise in cultivating a positive patient experience, younger physicians may benefit from some guidance. We describe the L.E.A.P (Listen, Educate and Empower, Align, Perform) method which may help guide young physicians through a successful cosmetic consult. In addition we will review the B.L.A.S.T (Believe, Listen, Apologize, Satisfy, Thank) method for de...
Xanthelasma palpebrarum (XP) is the most common type of cutaneous xanthoma and has been treated with intralesional injection of pingyangmycin effectively. However, bleomycin, which has the same effect in antitumor activity as pingyangmycin, has not been applied in the treatment of XP.
Vascular compromise is a rare but serious complication of dermal filler injection. Vessel occlusion tends to have a more immediate onset of symptoms. We report a case of skin necrosis that started with pain, erythema and edema two days after hyaluronic acid filler on the forehead of a 57-year-old woman. The patient was treated with less than 24 hours the onset of symptoms, leaving discreet scar. The current theories that explain skin necrosis caused by HA fillers include angiospasm and embolization. The fr...
Many therapeutic modalities were reported for the treatment of warts; however, no single treatment is completely effective.
Randomized controlled trial comparing long-pulsed 1064-Nm neodymium: Yttrium-aluminum-garnet laser alone, topical amorolfine nail lacquer alone, and a combination for nondermatophyte onychomycosis treatment.
Studies of the laser treatment of nondermatophyte mold (NDM) onychomycosis are limited. Long-pulsed neodymium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Nd:YAG) 1064-nm laser has been introduced as an adjuvant dermatophyte onychomycosis treatment.
The infraorbital groove can be corrected by lower blepharoplasty, microfat grafting, and soft tissue filler injection. Recently, multiple twisted polydioxanone threads were developed for facial rejuvenation.
Numerous researches have focused on discovering available inhibitors of melanogenesis from natural medicinal plants with stable efficacy and safety to resolve cutaneous hyperpigmentary problems. Melochia corchorifolia Linn. (MC) has been used as folk medicine to treat various diseases. However, the effect of MC on melanogenesis remains unknown.
For ethnic skin, laser surgery for pigmented lesions presents a special challenge due to the increased risk of postprocedural complications-erythema, blistering, and postinflammatory dyspigmentation.
Spiny keratoderma shows "music box spine" keratotic papules limited to the palms and soles and these lesions do not cause any trouble besides the cosmetic impairment and the sensation of roughness of hands and soles.
