Recent advances in laser therapy and other technologies

Recent advances in laser therapy and other technologies

Actas Dermo-Sifiliograficas 99(4): 262-268

Laser technology and other energy sources are rapidly finding a place in dermatology clinics. In the field of skin rejuvenation by fractional photothermolysis, although few controlled studies have been undertaken, several devices have emerged in recent years that appear less effective than laser ablation techniques but that are safer. The aim of this short article is to provide an introduction, though not treat in depth, the different emerging technologies in dermatology. We will focus particularly on lasers and light sources in improving applications such as the treatment of vascular lesions, acne, and encapsulated ink tattoos; light-emitting diodes; developments in the treatment of cellulitis; photodynamic therapy; suction methods; scarring; and finally the recent and doubtlessly future introduction of home devices for use in a range of dermatologic applications (depilation, rejuvenation, treatment of acne, etc).
