  • Publication number: 20130268032
    Abstract: Skin tissue is subjected to thermal energy that creates heating of the area being treated causing pores and follicle ducts to open so that excess oil, sebum, fatty deposits, or other unwanted deposits can be removed. A vacuum device is used to direct suction to the treated skin area helping to remove the unwanted deposits. Patterned thermal modification of tissue is used to expedite healing and minimize pain. The heating is controlled so that no skin tissue is damaged while still providing enough heat to the skin to alter the flow of sebum and destroy bacteria in the treated area.

  • Patent number: 8535298
    Abstract: A device and a method for treating Vulnerable Plaque by pulsed focused energy is described. The present invention describe a device and a method for a) breaking through plaque blocking arteries (totally occluded arteries) so that wires and stents can introduced to open the blocked or totally occluded arteries, and b) applying a controlled amount of energy to VP (possibly with cooling or energy removal applied to the surface layers) so that at least some of the constituents of the VP are stabilized or denatured so they can no longer cause blood clotting or are stabilized to prevent emergence into the blood stream and thus prevent clotting. Additionally an imaging method (for example, OCT, side looking OCT, IVUS, Ultrasound, OCT, thermography, IR imaging, Florence imaging, luminescent imaging, MRI, Videography, or other imaging technologies, allow viewing of the progress of the damage caused to the VP blood clot—causing components or the progress in the stabilization of the VP.

  • Patent number: 7749260
    Abstract: Devices and methods for the treatment of skin conditions and lesions are disclosed herein. One aspect of the invention is a compact hand held device that can be safely used by those suffering from skin conditions, such as acne, warts, cold blisters, blemished skin, or fine wrinkles. The devices described herein employ the application of heat for the treatment of skin conditions and lesions. Typically, the peak temperatures employed are about 70° C. to about 400° C. by the devices, are achieved in less than about 1 second, and maintained for less than about 1 second. In some embodiments, the skin surface is heated with heat pulses. Thermal conduction transfers heat from the device to the skin and causes a biological response that accelerates acne clearing, treats blemished skin, itching, or fine wrinkles. The total heat transferred is low enough to prevent burns.
