Characterization of microthermal zones induced by fractional radiofrequency using reflectance confocal microscopy: A preliminary study.
We evaluated the in vivo human RCM skin images of ablated fractional radiofrequency (RF) treatment to demonstrate the thermal interaction between RF and skin tissue. Three healthy male subjects underwent a single irradiation of fractional RF on the upper back area. The diameter, area, and depth of t...

Photodynamic inactivation of chlorin e6-loaded CTAB-liposomes against Candida albicans.
Antimicrobial photodynamic inactivation (PDI) is a promising therapeutic modality for the treatment of local infections. To increase the efficacy of PDI, chlorine e6 (Ce6) was encapsulated in cationic CTAB-liposomes composed of various ratios of dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-phosphatidylcholine (DMPC) and...
Independent evaluation of low-level laser therapy at 635 nm for non-invasive body contouring of the waist, hips, and thighs.
We performed an independent, physician-led trial to evaluate the utility of LLLT-635 nm for non-invasive body contouring of the waist, hips, and thighs. Eighty-six participants were retrospectively assessed at an individual clinic in the United States. A multi-head laser device was administered ever...
Type I and Type II mechanisms of antimicrobial photodynamic therapy: an in vitro study on gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria.
I mechanism). This study examined the relative contributions of (1) O(2) and HO(.) to APDT killing of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Fluorescence probes, 3'-(p-hydroxyphenyl)-fluorescein (HPF) and singlet oxygen sensor green reagent (SOSG) were used to determine HO(.) and (1) O(2) produce...

Double pass 595 nm pulsed dye laser at a 6 minute interval for the treatment of port-wine stains is not more effective than single pass.
Sixteen out of 17 included patients completed follow-up. The mean number of treatments before inclusion was 15. Overall color assessed by spectrophotometer showed no improvement for either single or double pass PDL. Blinded Physician Global Assessment and Patient Global Assessment showed a high vari...
Diagnostic efficacy of backscattering intensity measurements in optical coherence tomography of cervical intraepithelial dysplasia.
We explored the extent as to which backscattering intensity profiles of OCT images contained the essential information required for a reliable and valid diagnosis, using Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). The CA of histology- and OCT-based judgments suggests that the diagnostic proc...
A double-blind, randomized, intra-individual controlled feasibility trial comparing the use of 1,470 and 940 nm diode laser for the treatmen...
Various laser systems have been used for volume reduction of hyperplastic nasal turbinates. For endonasal application, fiber controlled diode lasers are preferred over conventional laser systems for reasons of cost and practicability. This study compares coagulative tissue effects us...
