2940nm Er:YAG Laser Versus Benzoyl Peroxide Gel for the Treatment of Inflammatory Acne

2014-08-27 04:00:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Acne is one of the most common conditions that patients seek for help in dermatological clinic. Nowadays, conventional treatment including topical agents(retinoids, antibiotics ,antiseptics and keratolytic agents) and systemic agents( antibiotics and retinoids) give a satisfying result but not to every patient. Some patients are not well respond to conventional therapy while some patients are unable to tolerate side effects of the treatments. Therefore, interventions to reduce acne are vigorously experimented . Lights and lasers including intense pulsed light, pulsed dye laser with or without photosensitizer and infrared lasers have been found to be useful in treating active inflammatory acne. Although,pain ,downtime and poor response of comedonal acne are limitations of those lights and lasers therapy. 2940 nm Erbium:YAG laser which has both resurfacing and photothermal effects is our laser of interest to seek for its efficacy in the treatment of inflammatory acne.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.

Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.

Fragmentation of CALCULI, notably urinary or biliary, by LASER.

Techniques using a laser to cut away and harvest a specific cell or cluster of cells from a tissue section while viewing it under the microscope.
