Poroqueratosis

Porokeratosis is a hereditary disorder of keratinization, described by Mibelli.

Clinical picture

It is characterized by the appearance of one or more round-shaped hyperkeratotic plaques. Skin lesions are persistent alternating periods of improvement and recurrence. There are multiple clinical variants, but the hyperkeratotic papule is present in all. The diagnosis is confirmed with histopathology, where the cornoid lamella is appreciated.

The poor response to therapy, the frequent recurrence and its potential pre-neoplastic nature make this pathology a complex problem for the dermatologist.

Treatment

There are many therapies suggested for porokeratosis, but most are disappointing. The ablation with the Erbium Lotus Laser opens up an effective, safe, painless therapeutic possibility, without adverse effects and immediate recovery.
Emollients and sun protection are the basis of any treatment.

Other topical treatments are:
1.5-Fluorouracil: due to the high irritation it produces on the skin, it cannot be used in large areas.
2. Local corticosteroids: for its anti-inflammatory effect relieving itching.
3.Diclofenac: it is one more non-steroidal anti-inflammatory in the long list of treatments for porokeratosis.
4.Imiquimod 5%: it is particularly useful in dermatosis where the immune system plays an important role.
5.Retinoids: like tretinoin, they function as keratolytics, which do not heal lesions but only produce cosmetic improvement.
6. Keratolytics: salicylic acid, ammonium lactate. They produce cosmetic improvement and slight relief of symptoms, without cure.

Systemic Treatments

Oral retinoids: isotretinoin, etretinate and acitretin.

Surgical Treatments

Electrocoagulation and Cryosurgery: They are effective, but they hurt and leave sequelae and it takes time for the treated area to recover.

Laser therapy

CO2, Nd-YAG, Q-switched and Erbium lasers can be used. All our centers have this technology, of which we prefer, as we said before, the Erbium Lotus Laser for its speed to treat large areas of the body and immediate recovery. In addition, it is not painful and does not leave sequelae.

The laser treatment is also combined with local treatments at home that are alternated according to the evolutionary moment of the disease.

Skin papules

 

A papule is a type of skin lesion, circumscribed, raised, with well-defined edges and solid content.

Clinical picture

Most of these lesions are elevated above the level of the surrounding skin and not in the deep planes, although they can involve both the dermis and the epidermis.

Treatment

Conventional treatments are as follows:

- Electrocoagulation.
- Cryosurgery.
- Surgery with a scalpel. Hoogstra Medical Centers the Erbium Lotus II laser with which the lesion can be selectively vaporized without affecting the surrounding tissues.

The removal of skin papules with a Lotus laser is a more effective, quick and painless procedure, with an unbeatable aesthetic result.

Papillomas of the skin

 

Recibe también otros nombres: acrocordones, papilomas cutáneos o pólipos fibroepiteliales

¿Qué son?

Son tumores benignos, no contagiosos, a diferencia de las verrugas que sí lo son. Pueden tener el color de la piel o ser más oscuros, pueden estar totalmente adheridos o unidos por un pedículo fino.

Se ve con más frecuencia en zonas de roce como el cuello, axilas, tronco y pliegues corporales, generalmente después de los 40 años y en personas con sobrepeso. Las biopsias son únicamente necesarias si tienen aspecto sospechoso de transformación.

En Hoogstra Centros Médicos utilizamos tecnología láser para eliminarlos en forma efectiva, indolora, ambulatoria y sin cicatrices, como se puede observar en los videos educativos.

Todos los dermatólogos en nuestros centros están capacitados en el diagnóstico y el uso de tecnología Láser. Ud. puede agendar un turno online con un dermatólogo y concurrir directamente para que le hagan un diagnóstico y lo traten en el mismo momento.

Jadassohn's Nevus

 

Clinical picture

El nevo de Jadassohn es un hamartoma cutáneo que combina anomalías de la epidermis, los folículos piloso, las glándulas sebáceas, las glándulas apocrinas y en ocasiones de los elementos mesenquimales de la dermis, por lo que su denominación como nevo sebáceo es poco apropiada, ya que sólo hace referencia a uno de los componentes de este hamartoma cutáneo.

He nevo de Jadassohn suele estar presente en el momento del nacimiento. En algunos casos tiene origen familiar.
Clínicamente se manifiesta como una placa de superficie lisa, localizada preferentemente en la cara, cuero cabelludo o cuello. Cuando se presenta en cuero cabelludo, hay alopecia.

Con el paso del tiempo el nevo de Jadassohn tiende a sobreelevarse y crecer. Tienen pocas posibilidades de malignizacion y hoy en día se considera que su tratamiento es solo a los fines estéticos.

Treatment

Si se presenta en cuero cabelludo generalmente conviene extirparlo quirúrgicamente para eliminar esa zona alopécica.

Si se presenta en rostro el tratamiento más adecuado es con láser de Erbium Lotus II. De esta manera se evitan cicatrices, no es doloroso y el paciente continúa inmediatamente con su vida normal. De acuerdo al tamaño y espesor será el número de sesiones que se necesiten para eliminarlo.

Los resultados estéticos con este tipo de tratamiento son muy superiores a cualquier otro tratamiento actualmente existente.
