Objective: To evaluate the histological effects of a new 675-nm laser device on the skin. Background: Innovative technologies based on physical principles have been proposed in recent years to improve the treatment of aging skin. Laser technology is currently being studied for its potential in skin care treatments. A new 675-nm laser device is being used for the treatment of hyperpigmentation, scars, and various types of wrinkles. Methods: A 42-year-old man underwent a 675-nm RedTouch® laser session for the treatment of aging signs on the neck. Two 2.5-mm biopsies were taken from the treated area and the adjacent area untreated with the laser, 45 days after the procedure. Comparison of the immunohistochemistry findings and assessment of the collagen and elastin fibers were performed by a board-certified dermatopathologist. Results: Skin biopsies revealed histological changes that comprised proliferation of new collagen fibers in the treated area, when compared to that in the untreated areas. Conclusions: Histological analysis suggests that the 675-nm laser has a potential role in stimulating collagen remodeling, with a significant increase in thin and new collagen fibers.

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the histological effects of a new 675-nm laser device on the skin. Background: Innovative technologies based on physical principles have been proposed in recent years to improve the treatment of aging skin. Laser technology is currently being studied for its potential in skin care treatments. A new 675-nm laser device is being used for the treatment of hyperpigmentation, scars, and various types of wrinkles. Methods: A 42-year-old man underwent a 675-nm RedTouch® laser session for the treatment of aging signs on the neck. Two 2.5-mm biopsies were taken from the treated area and the adjacent area untreated with the laser, 45 days after the procedure. Comparison of the immunohistochemistry findings and assessment of the collagen and elastin fibers were performed by a board-certified dermatopathologist. Results: Skin biopsies revealed histological changes that comprised proliferation of new collagen fibers in the treated area, when compared to that in the untreated areas. Conclusions: Histological analysis suggests that the 675-nm laser has a potential role in stimulating collagen remodeling, with a significant increase in thin and new collagen fibers.
