Finally, the unique, natural preservative system likely contributed to the excellent safety and tolerability profile. The positive results of this study give rise to consideration of the applicability of topical CLa in other disorders of impaired cutaneous barrier function and increased cutaneous inVammation. Pilot studies suggest a potential positive impact of CLa on atopic dermatitis and rosacea. 13,14 Since the present study has shown that this compound is safe on laser-damaged skin, which had all barrier function stripped and intense inVammatory conditions iatrogenically applied, other dermatitides, such as atopic dermatitis and radiation dermatitis, might also benefit from the healing and anti-inVammatory capabilities of topical CLa. Limitations. The limitations of this study include the relatively small sample size, as well as the slight variations in laser treatment settings. Given that this was a clinical aesthetic study, the unique features of each individual subject were taken into account when selecting the most appropriate treatment settings. The treating and evaluating investigators were blinded to the post-procedure regimen throughout the duration of the study. ReFeRenCes 1.
