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.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy for the treatment of dry eye disease. One eye of the participant will be randomized to receive the IPL treatment...
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...
Post-procedure purpura is a major complaint of patients with port-wine stains (PWSs) treated with pulsed dye laser (PDL).
The hypertrophic port wine stain (PWS) is only partially and superficially treated with the Pulsed dye laser(PDL) because of its limited depth of penetration. We used combined PDL and fiberoptic 1444n...
Reduced graphene oxide modified by pulsed laser ablation causes water splitting under visible light illumination (532 nm). When the light source is a pulsed laser, water splitting is accompanied by ca...
Cutis marmorata telangiectatica congenita is a rare disorder characterized by cutis marmorata, telangiectasia with or without recurrent ulcerations. It is a benign vascular anomaly with dilatation of ...
The pulsed dye laser (PDL) is used for the treatment of a variety of vascular and nonvascular disorders, and its therapeutic efficacy often depends on purpura as an endpoint. However, post-PDL purpura...
Treatment of the skin with flashlamps of prescribed wavelengths, fluence, and pulse durations which target specific chromophores to induce photothermolysis at specific locations in the skin such as at the HAIR FOLLICLE or SPIDER VEINS.
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.
