Lasers and Energy Devices for the Skin: Conventional and Unconventional Use

Description

Dermatologists can laser-treat a wide range of dermatoses, including vascular, pigmentary, textural, benign, proliferative, and premalignant conditions. Some of these conditions include vascular malformation, haemangioma, facial telangiectasias, café-au-lait macules, nevi of Ota, lentigines, acne scarring, rhytides, rhinophyma, and miscellaneous skin lesions. Photodynamic therapy with lasersand intense pulsed light is addressed, with particular reference to actinic keratosis and actinic cheilitis. Nowadays, lasers and energy devices such as intense pulsed light, radiofrequency, and ultrasounds are used, beyond the conventional indications to a wider spectrum of dermatological and cosmetic conditions.

The aim of the present special issue is to capture the state of the art on conventional dermatological laser applications and also to extend indications with unconventional use of lasers and energy devices.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Lasers in pigmentary skin disorders
  • Lasers in vascular malformations
  • Intense pulsed light
  • Radiofrequency and ultrasound
  • Cosmetic lasers and energy devices
  • Body contouring and cryolipolysis
  • UV range light and lasers
  • Extra dermatological applications (vulvovaginal lasers)
