Stem cell-derived exosomes in the treatment of melasma and its percutaneous penetration
CONCLUSION: hUCMSC-Exos can improve the symptoms of melasma safely and effectively. Compared with microneedles, NAFL and PBASM can also achieve a good effect toward promoting penetration. These findings are worthy of exploration and clinical application.PMID:36573453 | DOI:10.1002/lsm.23628 (Source: Pain Physician)

A combined subcision approach with either fractional CO2 laser (10,600  nm) or cross-linked hyaluronic acid versus subcision alone in atrophic post-acne scar treatment
This study aims to compare the efficacy and safety of combined subcision with either fractional CO2 laser or cross-linked hyaluronic acid filler (HA) versus subcision alone in the treatment of facial atrophic post-acne scars. Forty patients with atrophic post-acne scars were subjected to subcision on both sides of the face, then were randomly divided into three groups. Group I (20 patients): subcision combined with cross-linked HA filler injection at one side of the face; group II (20 patients): subcision followed by fractional CO2 at the other side of the face; and group III (20 patients): with subcision only as a control...

CO2 fractional laser combined with triamcinolone acetonide injection for the hypertrophic scars: which is first?
AbstractThe aim of this study is to investigate and analyze the effect of different application sequences of CO2 fractional laser and triamcinolone acetonide injection on the application effect of hypertrophic scar in one operation. Patients with hypertrophic scars who received CO2 lattice laser combined with triamcinolone acetonide injection from January 2021 to December 2022 were retrospectively analyzed. According to the different initial operations, they were divided into CO2 FL-TA group and TA-CO2 FL group. The Vancouver Scar Scale score and scar thickness of the two groups before and after treatment were analyzed. Th...
