Photoaged or chronically sun-exposed skin is characterised by a number of clinical features including fine and coarse wrinkles. The pathogenesis of wrinkle formation has yet to be determin...
Skin photoaging or skin photodamage are terms used to describe the change in the structure, function and appearance of skin caused by prolonged and repeated exposure to sunlight or other u...
In this early feasibility trial the safety and performance of the new retinal prothesis PRIMA is tested in five subjects suffering from atrophic dry age related macular degeneration.
A pilot study is designed to evaluate safety and efficacy of the Micro-Coring (MC) technology for treatment of facial wrinkles. MC device employs hollow coring needles that enable safe, ra...
To evaluate the local tolerance and cosmetic efficacy of a topical skin care formulation in healthy female participants with mild to advanced photo-damaged facial skin who have undergone a...
Fractional radiofrequency (FRF) has been used in the treatment of photoaged skin for a long time. This study was intended to examine the efficacy and safety of electrode pin FRF in the treatment of ph...
Facial threading involves the removal of hairs to restore facial skin smoothness. However, its effectiveness has not been rigorously evaluated.
Car drivers are generally exposed to direct sunlight during commuting hours, which may lead to irreversible skin damage; however, topographical analysis for different facial areas has not been reporte...
The potential of a dual wavelength picosecond laser, as a new modality for treating photoaged skin, was investigated in this clinical study.
Accumulation of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) in skin has been associated with skin aging. Inhibition of glycation of proteins of extracellular matrix may help skin texture and appearance. Th...
Muscles of facial expression or mimetic muscles that include the numerous muscles supplied by the facial nerve that are attached to and move the skin of the face. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
The transference between individuals of the entire face or major facial structures. In addition to the skin and cartilaginous tissue (CARTILAGE), it may include muscle and bone as well.
A syndrome characterized by slowly progressive unilateral atrophy of facial subcutaneous fat, muscle tissue, skin, cartilage, and bone. The condition typically progresses over a period of 2-10 years and then stabilizes.
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
Pain in the facial region including orofacial pain and craniofacial pain. Associated conditions include local inflammatory and neoplastic disorders and neuralgic syndromes involving the trigeminal, facial, and glossopharyngeal nerves. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent facial pain as the primary manifestation of disease are referred to as FACIAL PAIN SYNDROMES.
