INTRODUCTION: The main purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the application of a cosmetic treatment based on the secretion of Cryptomphalus aspersa (SCA) enhances the clinical results, tolerance, and skin regeneration after nonablative laser treatment in patients with moderate photoaging. METHODS: Randomized, double-blind, split-face trial in 20 patients with moderate aging. Two sessions with fractional nonablative laser were performed, and the cosmetic treatments (SCA 40% on one hemiface and vehicle on the other) were applied immediately after laser session and daily during the study (28 days)...

BACKGROUND: There are many postprocedure skin care options, but no consensus on the best formulation to optimize healing. Silicone gels have only been used to treat keloids and hypertrophic scars and typically applied after the wound has healed. This study compared the healing response after fractional ablative erbium laser resurfacing with a petrolatum-based ointment and a silicone gel. METHODS: A randomized, open-label, split-face study was performed. Ten subjects underwent Erbium:YAG (Sciton) fractional laser resurfacing...

BACKGROUND: Soft tissue filler injection is a common procedure for augmentation rhinoplasty. Various techniques for augmenting the nasal dorsum using a soft tissue filler have been attempted considering the size of the needle, the anatomical layer where the filler is injected, and the vascular distribution. The purpose of this paper was to evaluate the course of the dorsal nasal artery in patients scheduled for nasal augmentation using a soft tissue filler and to propose a method of nasal augmentation that minimizes vessel damage during soft tissue filler injection by confirming the distribution pattern of blood vessels through ultrasound...
