|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Port Wine Stain Nevus of Ota Tattoos Scars Acne Hypertrichosis Sebaceous Gland Diseases||Device: Optical Clearing||Phase 1|
The researchers expect that application of the optical clearing agent for treatment of benign vascular lesions, tattoos, nevus of Ota, hypertrichosis, scars, acne and sebaceous hyperplasia will result in
- decreased reflectance of the predominant color from the surface of skin (decreased red light scattering in case of benign vascular lesions, etc) as compared to the control group.
- greater Optical Coherence Tomography a non-invasive light based imaging method imaging depth as compared to the control group.
- greater improvement in the treatment outcome (decrease in the erythema index following laser treatment of vascular lesions as compared to the laser alone group; improved lightening of the tattoo or nevus of Ota as compared to the laser treatment alone group; significant decrease in hair re-growth as compared to laser treatment alone in patients seeking hair removal; greater improvement of scars, acne and sebaceous hyperplasia).
