Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a 675 nm laser device in the treatment of facial aging. Background: Wrinkles represent a major sign of aging skin and are considered a major topic in cosmetic dermatology, representing a common problem that negatively impacts patients' quality of life. Different types of treatments are currently available. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of a new 675 nm laser source system on facial wrinkles. Methods: A total of 22 consecutive female (age 49.36 ± 8.72) patients, with Fitzpatrick skin types II-IV and facial wrinkles, were treated with three sessions of a 675 nm laser system. Efficacy of treatment was assessed using the Modified Fitzpatrick Wrinkles Scale pre and postoperatively before 3 months. Results: All 22 patients treated with the 675 nm laser had a significant improvement of facial wrinkles according to the FWS (from 1.59 ± 0.80 to 1 ± 0.64; p ≤ 0.001). No side effects occurred except a mild erythematous rash in two patients. Conclusions: This novel 675 nm laser system can be considered a promising and effective tool in patients with facial wrinkles, and it involves a simple post-treatment management.

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of a 675 nm laser device in the treatment of facial aging. Background: Wrinkles represent a major sign of aging skin and are considered a major topic in cosmetic dermatology, representing a common problem that negatively impacts patients' quality of life. Different types of treatments are currently available. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of a new 675 nm laser source system on facial wrinkles. Methods: A total of 22 consecutive female (age 49.36 ± 8.72) patients, with Fitzpatrick skin types II-IV and facial wrinkles, were treated with three sessions of a 675 nm laser system. Efficacy of treatment was assessed using the Modified Fitzpatrick Wrinkles Scale pre and postoperatively before 3 months. Results: All 22 patients treated with the 675 nm laser had a significant improvement of facial wrinkles according to the FWS (from 1.59 ± 0.80 to 1 ± 0.64; p ≤ 0.001). No side effects occurred except a mild erythematous rash in two patients. Conclusions: This novel 675 nm laser system can be considered a promising and effective tool in patients with facial wrinkles, and it involves a simple post-treatment management.
