This approach utilizes lasers to create microchannels or tiny pores in the skin, allowing enhanced penetration and absorption of topical medications or serums. The laser energy stimulates the skin, increasing its permeability and facilitating the targeted delivery of drugs to specific layers or areas of concern.
This method offers several advantages in dermatology. Firstly, laser-assisted drug delivery improves the efficacy of topical medications by enhancing their absorption into the deeper layers of the skin. This is particularly beneficial for treating various skin conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and even precancerous lesions.
Furthermore, laser-assisted drug delivery can help reduce systemic side effects often associated with oral or systemic medications. By directly targeting the affected area, lower doses of drugs can be used, minimizing the risk of systemic absorption and potential adverse effects.
Additionally, this technique enables a more precise and controlled delivery of drugs, ensuring that they reach the intended areas of the skin with higher concentration. This targeted approach allows for more effective treatment outcomes while reducing the need for frequent application of topical medications.
