Evaluation of a nonsurgical, muscle-stimulating system to elevate soft tissues of the face and neck.

Taub AF

Non-invasive procedures for tissue tightening and elevation are new frontiers in dermasurgery. Current methods for achieving a “nonsurgical face-lift” include radiofrequency and infrared light devices which disrupt non-covalent collagen bonds and stimulate collagen production. This study evaluated a novel treatment protocol designed to achieve a nonsurgical face-lift with electrical stimulation...

Development of an intraoral device for facial muscle retraining and its clinical application.

Grisolía FM, Ferrary T

The aim of this work was to develop a facial neuromuscular retraining technique for cases of facial palsy, involving an easy-to use intraoral device that allows correcting abnormal neuromuscular patterns and improving esthetics. Facial palsy is a motor alteration of multiple origin that results in facial asymmetry. Treatment remains controversial...

Standard guidelines of care: Keloids and hypertrophic scars.

Gupta S, Sharma VK

Keloids and hypertrophic scars (HTS) are the result of overgrowth of fibrous tissue, following healing of a cutaneous injury, and cause morbidity. There are several treatment modalities which are useful for the management of keloids, though no single modality is completely effective. The most commonly used modalities are pressure, silicone...

Treatment of pyogenic granulomas with the 585 nm pulsed dye laser.

González S, Vibhagool C, Falo LD, Momtaz KT, Grevelink J, González E

Current therapeutic alternatives for pyogenic granulomas include surgical excision, electrodesiccation and curettage, cryotherapy, and ablation with CO2 or continuous-wave vascular lasers.Our purpose was to investigate the use of the 585 nm flashlamp-pumped pulsed dye laser (585 nm PDL) for the treatment of pyogenic granulomas in terms of efficacy, advantages in...

Higher fat oxidation during treadmill walking versus cycle ergometry in active women at equal RPE: a pilot study.

King L, Sillers W, McCarthy K, Louis P, Astorino TA

Muscle degrades fat and carbohydrate (CHO) during exercise to meet the demand for ATP. Factors including exercise intensity/duration and fitness level are recognized as primary determinants of the relative contribution of these macronutrients to substrate metabolism, although exercise mode has also been identified. The aim of this study was to...

How important is hydrotherapy? Effects of dynamic action of hot spring water as a rehabilitative treatment for burn patients in Switzerland.

Moufarrij S, Deghayli L, Raffoul W, Hirt-Burri N, Michetti M, de Buys Roessingh A, Norberg M, Applegate LA

Burn rehabilitation using hydrotherapy can have multiple benefits for the burn patient. The therapy uses specific mineral enriched hot spring water and water jets with varied hydro-pressure to combat hypertrophy, inflammatory reaction signs, abnormal pigmentation, and, more specifically, redness and scarring. Standard operating procedures for burn rehabilitation have been developed...
