Combined carbon dioxide laser and bipolar electrocoagulation: Another option to treat rhinophyma.

J Dermatolog Treat. 2009 Jan 1;:1-3

Authors: Cravo M, Miguel Canelas M, Carlos Cardoso J, Vieira R, Figueiredo A

Rhinophyma is a progressive and disfiguring disorder of the nose characterized by hyperplasia of the sebaceous glands and dermal tissue, representing the end-stage of rosacea. Four male patients affected by a moderate-severe rhinophyma were treated using a combined therapy with carbon dioxide laser and bipolar electrocoagulation. All patients achieved marked cosmetic results with minimal scarring. Various surgical approaches have been described to treat this condition but as yet there is no agreement in the literature on the ideal treatment. This combined method provides a bloodless operative field which allows the sculpting of the hypertrophic areas, leading to a good cosmetic outcome and a pain-free postoperative recovery.
