BACKGROUND: In recent literature, different approaches have been proposed to improve the long-lasting treatment of age-related alterations on the human face with decreased invasiveness and side effects such as scar tissue. Voltaic arc dermabrasion is a minimally painful procedure that does not create discomfort to the patient and requires no anaesthesia. AIMS: The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the voltaic arc technique for the treatment of skin wrinkles in the periauricular area. METHODS: A total of 80 patients were treated in this study, 56 females and 24 males. The population was visited at 1 week, 1 month, and 2 months postoperative follow-ups to evaluate the healing of the treated regions. RESULTS: All subjects showed evidence of tissue contraction related to the skin of the periauricular region with a cosmetic reduction of wrinkles in the treated area. No scars, complications, or pigmentary alterations were reported. At 1 month, all treated areas showed complete healing. CONCLUSIONS: The voltaic arc dermabrasion can be considered a useful tool for a noninvasive treatment of wrinkles related to the periauricular skin, with no discomfort for the patient or complications related to the procedure.

Abstract

BACKGROUND: In recent literature, different approaches have been proposed to improve the long-lasting treatment of age-related alterations on the human face with decreased invasiveness and side effects such as scar tissue. Voltaic arc dermabrasion is a minimally painful procedure that does not create discomfort to the patient and requires no anaesthesia. AIMS: The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the voltaic arc technique for the treatment of skin wrinkles in the periauricular area. METHODS: A total of 80 patients were treated in this study, 56 females and 24 males. The population was visited at 1 week, 1 month, and 2 months postoperative follow-ups to evaluate the healing of the treated regions. RESULTS: All subjects showed evidence of tissue contraction related to the skin of the periauricular region with a cosmetic reduction of wrinkles in the treated area. No scars, complications, or pigmentary alterations were reported. At 1 month, all treated areas showed complete healing. CONCLUSIONS: The voltaic arc dermabrasion can be considered a useful tool for a noninvasive treatment of wrinkles related to the periauricular skin, with no discomfort for the patient or complications related to the procedure.
