Estrías

Estrías

Las estrías son marcas o líneas visibles en la piel, normalmente largas y finas, que ocurren cuando ésta se estira rápidamente, como durante un aumento rápido de peso, que hace que las fibras elásticas de la piel se rompan.

Mejoras después del tratamiento con Factores de Crecimiento

El uso de Dermapen es una modalidad efectiva de tratamiento, especialmente en pacientes con los tipos de piel IV y V de Fitzpatrick porque supera los efectos secundarios de las cicatrices y la hiperpigmentación resultantes de otros procedimientos en los que la epidermis está comprometida. Ciertamente es una técnica valiosa con sus numerosas aplicaciones y sus modificaciones en constante expansión, así como la viabilidad del uso doméstico.

Skin resurfacing procedures: new and emerging options

Abstract

The demand for skin resurfacing and rejuvenating procedures has progressively increased in the last decade and has sparked several advances within the skin resurfacing field that promote faster healing while minimizing downtime and side effects for patients. Several technological and procedural skin resurfacing developments are being integrated into clinical practices today allowing clinicians to treat a broader range of patients’ skin types and pathologies than in years past, with noteworthy outcomes. This article will discuss some emerging and developing resurfacing therapies and treatments that are present today and soon to be available.

Introduction

Medical and esthetic skin procedures have seen a steady surge within the last decade largely stemming from greater numbers of new skin cancer diagnoses and a higher demand for skin rejuvenation practices. In 2013 in the United States, dermatologic surgeons performed over 9.5 million treatments, an almost 22% increase from the previous year, with a rising number of treatments involving skin resurfacing in the areas of laser/light/energy-based procedures (2.25 million), chemical peels (1.1 million), and microdermabrasion (974,000).1 With this greater demand for skin resurfacing, selecting an appropriate treatment modality for the patient’s skin type and condition is critical for a successful skin resurfacing therapy. Exploration to uncover the next generation of skin resurfacing treatments is being pursued to engineer therapies that further improve patients’ skin texture and appearance with minimal downtime and complications. The purpose of this review is to highlight some of the research that has been conducted into emerging resurfacing therapies being explored and delivered in practice today.

Microneedling: Advances and widening horizons

Abstract

Microneedling is a very simple, safe, effective, and minimally invasive therapeutic technique. It was initially introduced for skin rejuvenation, however, now it is being used for a very wide range of indications including acne scar, acne, post-traumatic/burn scar, alopecia, skin rejuvenation, drug delivery, hyperhidrosis, stretch marks, and many more. Moreover, during the last 10 years, many new innovations have been made to the initial instrument, which was used for microneedling. This technique can be combined with other surgical techniques to provide better results. In particular, it is a very safe technique for dark skin types, where risk of postinflammatory pigmentation is very high with other techniques that damage the epidermis. In this review article, we are updating on the different instruments now available for this procedure, and its efficacy when performed alone or in combination with other techniques for various indications.

INTRODUCTION

Microneedling is a relatively new minimally invasive procedure involving superficial and controlled puncturing of the skin by rolling with miniature fine needles. Over a short period of time, it has gained mass popularity and acceptance as it is a simple, cheap, safe, and effective technique requiring minimal training. Traditionally used as a collagen induction therapy for facial scars and skin rejuvenation, it is also widely used now as a transdermal delivery system for therapeutic drugs and vaccines. In this review, we highlight the constantly evolving research and developments in microneedling techniques, instruments, and its applications in dermatology.
