Skin Deep: Uncovering the Benefits of Fractional Laser Treatments

Dr. Sonoa Au

These lasers can provide the skin restoration that patients want, without the level of downtime or side effects of earlier techniques.

In the world of laser skin technology, a time-capsule trip back to the early aughts shows dermatologists at a crossroads: attempts to adjust more invasive approaches were increasingly recognized as failing to bring meaningful improvements. Enter the fractional laser: “I think of it as the ‘Goldilocks’ solution, offering just the right amount,” explains Dr. Sonoa Au of Advanced Dermatology PC. “These lasers can provide the skin restoration that patients want, without the level of downtime or side effects of earlier techniques.”

Fractional lasers stand out due to their design, which purposefully exposes only a portion – or “fraction” – of the patient’s skin to lasers, leaving intermediary areas untouched.

“Less really can be more,” observes Dr. Au. “The fractional approach harnesses our body’s innate healing capability, with untreated areas facilitating faster, more effective skin restoration.”

Since their launch in 2004, when the Fraxel®-brand laser was introduced, fractional lasers have exploded, becoming the number-one cosmetic laser skin treatment. More than 400,000 procedures were performed in 2016 alone, according to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

“Fractional lasers turn back the skin’s clock, so to speak,” notes Dr. Au, describing how laser beams trigger a rapid healing and restoration process. “That healing process can eliminate damaged skin – even below the surface – by causing it to be expelled and replaced with new cells.”

Dr. Au offers the following information regarding the unique potential of fractional lasers:

Uncovering 5 Truths About Fractional Laser Skin Treatments

1. It’s not just an anti-aging treatment: “The ability to replace damaged skin with new growth makes fractional laser treatments an option for different kinds of skin damage,” notes Dr. Au. “Yes, it can address wrinkles and age spots, but it also can help with other damage, for example scarring due to acne or surgery, as well as with stretch marks.”

2. It’s compatible with all skin types: “I think it’s helpful for patients to know that their skin type doesn’t make fractional lasers off limits,” says Dr. Au. “At this point, we have research that shows these lasers work for different skin tones, as well as for sensitive skin. Of course, regardless of skin type, patients need to carefully follow their doctor’s pre- and post-treatment skin care recommendations to support the best results.”

3. It’s for more than just the face: “When we consider the different types of skin damage fractional lasers can address,” Dr. Au points out, “it makes sense that they offer an option for wherever skin restoration in desired – not only on the face.”

4. It can be customized to meet different patients’ needs: “Since it was introduced, fractional laser technology has continued to evolve,” observes Dr. Au. “Today, patients can choose from a range of options, from more superficial treatments to those that can address deeper levels of skin damage. Patients can work with their doctors to design an approach that best meets their needs and their lifestyles, in terms of recovery time.” Dr. Au adds that the growing range of fractional laser treatments further underscores the importance of carefully choosing a doctor with expertise.

5. It can be combined with other treatments: “Increasingly,” Dr. Au notes, “dermatologists are using different skin treatments together to maximize results. We’re seeing this with fractional lasers, which can be combined with other procedures, for example, with intense pulsed light treatments.”

“Fractional lasers,” sums up Dr. Au, “have brought about what’s been called a ‘renaissance’ in the field of cosmetic skin lasers. As a doctor, it’s extremely rewarding to see what these treatments can do for patients.”

Passing gas in public can be a very embarrassing experience for both women and men, and an inventor from Riverdale, Md., has observed people suffering this embarrassment. “In order to solve this common problem, I came up with this idea,” he said.

THE GASS-PAD spares a person embarrassment if he or she passes gas in public. It prevents the emission of bad odors, which promotes confidence and peace of mind and eliminates worry.

Compact, easy to use and producible in many design variations, THE GASS-PAD serves as an alternative to conventional gas-control products.

The original design was submitted to the Washington, D.C. office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.

The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors Receives Funds…

“We are delighted that CDC has recognized NACDD’s significant work in diabetes and prediabetes, allowing us to bring the proven effectiveness of the National Diabetes Prevention Program to places it has never gone before,” said John Robitscher, CEO of the NACDD.

The National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) will receive approximately $7 million during the next five-years from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to scale and sustain the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) in rural counties across four states in the first year.

NACDD was one of only 10 organizations to receive this funding, which began on October 1, 2017, and follows NACDD’s previous five years of related National DPP work, primarily in large cities.

“We are delighted that CDC has recognized NACDD’s significant work in diabetes and prediabetes, allowing us to bring the proven effectiveness of the National Diabetes Prevention Program to places it has never gone before,” said John Robitscher, CEO of the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors.

In its application for funding, NACDD identified both geographic and population-based priorities for establishing the National DPP. In addition to reaching the people at high risk for type 2 diabetes, the Association will partner with the nationally recognized Lakeshore Foundation, which specializes in serving the disability community. Lakeshore has adapted the National DPP curriculum for use with persons with disabilities and will help train NACDD’s partners to deliver this adapted curriculum.

Geographically, NACDD will focus its efforts on several counties in Pennsylvania, New York, Florida, and Alaska that do not currently have National DPP lifestyle change programs. To lead the effort in each state, NACDD will partner with the Health Promotion Council in Pennsylvania, the New York Association of Independent Living Centers (NYAIL), the Florida Department of Health, and the Alaska Department of Health.

To reach persons who cannot attend an in-person program, NACDD will work with a virtual, CDC-recognized DPP provider, Hope 80/20, to deliver the program via an internet-based video series and live, weekly coaching calls. In Alaska, where populations often are remote and have poor access to the internet, NACDD will partner with Inquisit Health to offer a telephonic version of the National DPP.

To address the growing problems of prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, CDC established the National DPP, which provides the framework for type 2 diabetes prevention efforts in the US. The National DPP includes an evidence-based, year-long, lifestyle change program that encourages modest behavior changes to lose weight to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that a loss of even 5-7% of body weight could reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% in adults with prediabetes and by 71% in adults older than 60.

There are currently more than 1,500 CDC-recognized organizations offering the National DPP lifestyle change program, who have enrolled more than 150,000 eligible participants. Approximately 65 commercial health plans provide some coverage for the program, and Medicare will start to reimburse for this program in 2018.

NACDD’s goal in its first year of funding is to enroll a total of 1,000 participants in the lifestyle change program across all four of its chosen geographies.

A 600-kilogram man has undergone a successful gastric bypass surgery in Mexico, and is currently being closely monitored by doctors.

Juan Pedro Franco, who is dubbed the world’s heaviest man, took the surgery to reduce his weight in half, according to his doctors in Mexico.

The 32-year old Mexican had to follow an intense weight loss program before he could participate in the surgery. He was required to keep his diabetes and blood pressure under control, as surgeons would only perform the surgery if they were satisfied with Franco’s steady condition.

His surgeon, John Castaneda said the surgery has left Franco to be “quite delicate”, and is expected to be followed up with another operation in the future.

“The surgery was quite successful. But now we have to wait and see how he responds to the (systemic) change. Let’s hope everything goes well,” commented Castaneda.

The second procedure is expected to be done in November, in which his stomach size will be reduced and his intestines modified.

However, Franco must not rely on just surgery alone, as his weight loss plan must be combined with a strong psychology and strict nutrition.

“If that does not happen, the entire thing will fail,” Castaneda warned.

Before the surgery, Franco had spent seven years in bed due to his extreme weight.

He has been obese all his life, but an injury when he was 17 years worsened his health condition.

Weight Loss Surgery Shown to Be Effective in Treatment of Diabetes

Weight Loss Surgery Shown to Be Effective in Treatment of Diabetes

The final 5-year results of the Surgical Treatment and Medications Potentially Eradicate Diabetes Efficiently trial of obese patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes showed that bariatric surgery plus intensive medical therapy was more effective than intensive medical therapy alone in decreasing or in some cases resolving hyperglycemia.

A previously reported, preliminary 5-year results were presented at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2016 Scientific Sessions in April. The final trial results, by Philip R Schauer, MD, from Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, and colleagues, were published in the February 15 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

“We’re certainly not saying in this study that medications and lifestyle are not useful, but for some patients [with type 2 diabetes] who are refractory to lifestyle [changes] and medication and not controlled even with insulin, surgery is a very good option and has durable results out to 5 years,” senior author Sangeeta R Kashyap, MD, Cleveland Clinic, told Medscape Medical News.

About one in four patients who had undergone Roux-en-Y gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy but only one in 20 patients who had received only intensive medical therapy attained the primary end point of HbA1c <6% at 5 years.

Moreover, the “beneficial effects of bariatric surgery on glycemic control were durable, even among patients with mild obesity (body mass index [BMI] of 27–34), which led to a sustained reduction in the use of diabetes and cardiovascular medications,” Dr Schauer and colleagues report.

However, this was a small study, and a longer, larger multi-center study — which the group is planning to do — will be needed to confirm these findings and see whether the improved control of diabetes is tied to reduced risk of diabetes-related cardiovascular, renal, or ophthalmic disease.

Bariatric Surgery vs Medications Alone

STAMPEDE randomized 150 patients with uncontrolled type 2 diabetes (a mean HbA1c of 9.2%) and a BMI of 27 to 43 to receive intensive medical therapy alone, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, or sleeve gastrectomy.

All patients met with clinicians every 3 months for 2 years and every 6 months for 3 years to receive adjustments in their intensive medical therapies with the goal of an HbA1c of 6% without unacceptable side effects.

A total of 134 patients (89%) completed the 5-year trial. On average, when they entered the study, the patients (66% women) had been 49 years old and had had diabetes for 8.4 years, and 44% required insulin.

A total of 49 patients (37%) had mild obesity (BMI <35) at study entry. “Much of diabetes occurs at a BMI of about 30,” and these mildly obese patients tend to have greater visceral obesity, Dr Kashyap note
