Objective: The development of medical laser technology began more than 40 years ago. Over the past 2 decades, this tool has become widely used in the field of laser cosmetology as a selective light treatment method. This article primarily studies the application effect of a skin digital microscope in cosmetic laser treatment.
Methods: In the experiment, a skin digital microscope was used to assist in clinical diagnosis, monitor the immediate response after laser treatment, and guide the clinic in choosing the most appropriate therapeutic dose. Algolab Photo Vector software was used to vectorize digital microscope photos of the skin, while CAD software was employed to measure photos in DXF format to obtain the area and circumference of target pores and scars before and after treatment. Lastly, the VivaScope 1500 system was used to perform RCM scanning on target skin lesion area or normal skin area.
Results: Using SAS statistical software, Wilcoxon's signed sequence and verification were performed before and after treatment; P<0.05 indicated a statistically significant difference. The experimental data showed 0.26% post-inflammatory pigmentation in patients with skin type 2.
Conclusion: The results reveal that the skin digital microscope provides an effective, objective, and quantitative method for the evaluation of treatment efficacy before and after treatment.
