A 25-year-old aesthetician was operating Q-switch pulse (SPECTRA) cosmetic laser machine of 1,064 nm wavelength, for the purpose of skin bleaching. The probe suddenly slipped over the plastic sheet that had been placed to avoid COVID-19 exposure after which she complained of sudden loss of vision. She was diagnosed as having vitreous hemorrhage in her right eye and was treated conservatively for one month. She then complained of central scotoma and was diagnosed to have developed a full-thickness macular hole, for which she was advised vitrectomy surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Seborrheic keratosis (SK) are benign lesions with cosmetic concerns. Role of TCA and erbium YAG laser has already been described individually in the literature. However, there is a scarcity of data on the comparative evaluation of these two modalities in SK. AIM: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety profile of Erbium YAG laser ablation with 70% TCA for the treatment of facial SK. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 50 cases of facial SK were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Facial rejuvenation procedures have been in existence for over a century. Since its first introduction, it improved anatomical understanding and clinical implications and gave rise to numerous techniques and re-ideations of the original face-lift. The increase in popularity of face-lift procedures attracts patients of various ages and with different medical comorbidities. In this paper, we describe the less-invasive facelift procedure, termed the "Micro-Face-lift," with minimal complications, a short recovery period, and few contraindications...

BACKGROUND: Hirsutism is the presence of excessive terminal hair on androgen-dependent sites of the body. Lasers like Alexandrite, diode, and Nd:Yag lasers have been used for hair reduction with varying efficacy. Trichoscopy of hair is a simple noninvasive method of hair assessment. However, it has not been used in the assessment of diode laser hair reduction. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of diode laser hair reduction in skin color with the help of clinical and trichoscopic assessment...

BACKGROUND: Skin wrinkles are generated as a result of the aging process. Dermal thickness underneath a wrinkle decreases absolutely. Approximately 20% of dermal thickness disappears as people become elderly. In recent times, people have attempted to reduce wrinkles using various procedures. Currently, available picosecond lasers in dermatology can create mechanical stress and the energy can be fractionated via diffractive lens arrays (DLA). An emerging indication for the picosecond laser includes photorejuvenation...

INTRODUCTION: Skin grafting is a routinely employed technique to cover the skin defect. Though the skin grafts are technically effortless, they are tiresome because of the prolonged duration of hospital stay, labor-intensive, demanding repeated dressings, and also create a second wound. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is one that has a higher concentration of platelets than the blood. Alpha granules of the platelets are rich in growth factors. AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To assess the effect of PRP on split-thickness skin graft uptake and donor site healing...

The Fordyce spots are ectopic sebaceous glands, located at the lip's vermilion border or the oral mucosa. Clinically presents as tiny, discrete, white or yellowish, focally grouped papules. It is a common cosmetic disorder and is significantly associated with emotional stress. Herein, we describe three cases that showed satisfactory cosmetic results after the treatment of Fordyce spots using a CO2 laser. Patients were 21-year-old, 25-year-old, and 28-year-old males with Fordyce spots on the upper lip. They were treated with the CO2 laser and after 4 months of treatment, no recurrence was noted...

UNLABELLED: Xanthelasma palpebrarum (XP) is a benign cosmetic condition. Although the role of CO2 laser is well described, there are only a few studies on Erbium: YAG in XP. Similarly, trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is commonly used in XP. However, there are only a few studies comparing these modalities in the treatment of XP. AIM: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Erbium: YAG laser and 50% TCA in the treatment of XP with the role of dermoscope in the evaluation of lesions...

INTRODUCTION: Alopecia areata (AA) is a non-scarring alopecia of chronic autoimmune etiology with heterogenous severity against the anagen hair follicle over the scalp, beard, or any part of the body and is associated with a significant psychological morbidity in the mental status of the patients leading the patients to seek treatment for cosmetic reasons. The management of AA is very unpredictable and is associated with various cosmetic adverse effects. This study aimed at comparing the efficacy and safety of a novel procedure of laser-assisted drug delivery system of steroids with the first-line procedure of intralesional steroids (ILS) for the treatment of patchy AA...

Acne keloidalis nuchae is a chronic inflammatory condition affecting the occipital area or nape of the neck characterized by fibrotic papules, firm pustules, and nodules that coalesce into keloid like mass or plaques. It was first described by Kaposi in 1969. It is also known as lichen keloidalis nuchae, dermatitis papillaris capillitia, and folliculitis nuchae scleroticans. If not treated in the early stages of the disease it tends to be refractory to conventional methods like topical, intralesional steroids with antibiotics or retinoids...

BACKGROUND: Facial acne scars are perceived negatively by society; in an era where everyone wants to look their best, acne and its sequelae are a great source of stress driving down self-worth and elevating the risk of depression and anxiety. It affects over 95% of acne patients, particularly in nodulocystic, conglobate, and fulminans varieties. Various treatment modalities are available, but no single modality is 100% curative. Microneedling produces controlled skin injury, releasing various growth factors and setting up a healing cascade, and laying down collagen as a result...

BACKGROUND: Noncultured epidermal cell suspension (NCES) and Jodhpur technique (JT) are two treatment options in vitiligo, in which the basic principle is the transfer of melanocytes from uninvolved skin to stable vitiligo patch in the form of either tissue graft or cellular graft. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate effectiveness of two different treatment methods (NCES and JT) in stable vitiligo. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a randomized comparative study, which included 45 patients with 153 stable vitiligo patches...
