Periorbital PIH after fractional CO2 laser resurfacing in Asians

Randal Pham, MD, Ingerlisa Mattoch, MD and Sterling S. Baker, MD presented their works on periorbital post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) at the 2014 California Society of Facial Plastic Surgery Annual Symposium. This pilot landmark study of 6 subjects addressed one of the most common side effects of laser resurfacing in Asians. This unique study not only examined the technique used to prevent PIH but also provided histological evidence for the advantage of the use of fractional CO2 laser in Asians.

According to Randal Pham, MD, principal investigator of the research, “Fractional CO2 laser will continue to play a crucial role in facial plastic surgery and this study will help elucidate what factors contribute to safety measures when CO2 laser is used in Asians.”
