Thulium Fiber Laser Rejuvenates Male Scalp With Photodamage

MONDAY, Jan. 30, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- For men with extensive photodamage of the scalp, one session of fractionated 1,927 nm thulium fiber laser can achieve rejuvenation, according to a study published online Jan. 24 in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine.

Monica Boen, M.D., from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and colleagues examined the safety and efficacy of one treatment of fractionated 1,927 nm thulium fiber laser using high density and high energy settings in four male patients with Fitzpatrick skin types II to III and extensive photodamage of the scalp.

The researchers found that the patients experienced 60 to 90 percent improvement in dyspigmentation, lentigines, and keratosis. There were no adverse events, and the procedure was well tolerated.

"This case series is the first report in the literature demonstrating the successful rejuvenation of the scalp using the 1,927 nm thulium fiber laser," the authors write.
