Title: Method of emulsion polymerization

Applicant/Assignee: DOW CORNING [US]

Application No.: 296204 Applic. Date: 1994-08-25

Abstract:

A method is described for making a silicone emulsion. According to the method, there is formed a mixture of water, a cyclic siloxane, optionally a nonionic surfactant, and a cationic surfactant. There is then added to the mixture a polymerization initiator which can be a silanolate or an organosilanolate. The mixture is heated and agitated, and the cyclic siloxane is allowed to polymerize until an emulsion is formed. The benefit of this emulsion polymerization method is that the rate of emulsion polymer formation is enhanced. Thus, the method provides for the production of emulsions in a new and more efficient manner. The silicone emulsion will produce an elastomeric product when water is removed under ambient conditions.

Application No.: 644231 Applic. Date: 1996-05-13

Abstract:

A process for the long term or permanent prevention of growth of unwanted hair. The upper portions of hair ducts (i.e. portions near the skin surface) in a section of skin are infiltrated with a contaminant having a high absorption at at least one frequency band of light. The skin is then illuminated using a process having at least two distinct phases. In a "mechanical" phase the skin section is illuminated (e.g., by a laser) with at least one short pulse of light sufficient to cause tiny explosions in the contaminant forcing portions of the contaminant more deeply into the hair ducts. During a "thermal" phase the skin section is then illuminated so as to heat the contaminant substantially without further explosion or vaporization of the contaminant. The hot contaminant heats portions of the skin tissue immediately surrounding the contaminant to a temperature high enough and for a long enough period of time to devitalize the tissue. The process may also include a "cleanup" phase, during which the skin section is illuminated with a few short pulses of light to cause additional explosions in and vaporization of portions of the contaminant then remaining in the ducts and additional damage to the skin tissue immediately surrounding the contaminant.

Title: Skin treatment process using laser

Applicant/Assignee: THERMOLASE CORP [US]

Application No.: 489358 Applic. Date: 1995-06-12

Abstract:

The present invention provides a very simple easily administered skin treatment process for (1) the removal of superficial epidermal skin cells in the human skin (2) the reduction or removal of unwanted hair and (3) the mitigation of skin conditions such as acne and seborrhea. A contaminant having a high absorption at at least one wavelength of light is topically applied to a section of the surface of the skin. A preferred contaminant is a mixture of 20% by weight of one micron graphite particles in mineral oil. Graphite is a very strong absorber of 1.06 micron light produced by the Nd:YAG laser. Portions of the contaminant are forced to infiltrate into spaces between the superficial epidermal cells, into hair ducts in the skin and into and/or adjacent to sebaceous glands. The skin section is illuminated with short laser pulses at the matching wavelength, so as to impact sufficient energy to the contaminant to cause explosion in the contaminant. The energy released in the course of the explosions may blow off layers of dead skin cells and/or destroy tissue responsible for hair growth and/or sebum production.

Application No.: 695200 Applic. Date: 1996-08-01

Abstract:

A process for the permanent destruction of unwanted human hair. Hair duct in a section of skin in which the unwanted hair is growing is contaminated with a contaminant having a very large number of small particles having a high absorption at at least one frequency band of light. The skin section is then illuminated with a series of short pulses of light at the frequency band of high absorption, the first of the short pulses having sufficient energy to cause a large number of the particles to explode into two or more fragments so as to spread said contaminant in the hair ducts and subsequent pulses having sufficient energy to cause a large number of the fragments to further explode into additional fragments to further spread the contaminant in the hair duct. The explosions and energy is transferred to and from the particles and fragments causing damage to skin tissue surrounding said hair ducts so as to cause death to the hairs growing in the ducts. In a preferred embodiment the particles are 1 micron graphite particles and each section is illuminated with about 5 laser pulses at 1.06 micron wavelength produced by a Nd:YAG laser, each pulse having an energy density of about 3 Joules/cm2 and a pulse width of about 10 nano seconds.

Abstract:

The present invention provides a very simple easily administered skin treatment process for (1) the removal of superficial epidermal skin cells in the human skin (2) the reduction or removal of unwanted hair and (3) the mitigation of skin conditions such as acne and seborrhea. A contaminant having a high absorption at at least one wavelength of light is topically applied to a section of the surface of the skin. A preferred contaminant is a mixture of 20% by weight of one micron graphite particles in mineral oil. Graphite is a very strong absorber of 1.06 micron light produced by the Nd:YAG laser. Portions of the contaminant are forced to infiltrate into spaces between the superficial epidermal cells, into hair ducts in the skin and into and/or adjacent to sebaceous glands. The skin section is illuminated with short laser pulses at the matching wavelength, so as to impact sufficient energy to the contaminant to cause explosion in the contaminant. The energy released in the course of the explosions may blow off layers of dead skin cells and/or destroy tissue responsible for hair growth and/or sebum production.

Title: Variable pulse duration, adjustable wavelength medical laser system

Applicant/Assignee: LASERSCOPE INC [US]

Application No.: 09/569595 Applic. Date: 2000-05-09

Abstract:

A medical laser system is disclosed for generating a pulsed output beam of variable pulse duration and wavelength. The on time of the laser is the pulse duration which is generated by a Q-switch operated in a repetitive mode as a train of micropulses. According to one embodiment, a repetitively Q-switched frequency-doubled solid state laser produces an input beam which is subsequently used to excite a dye laser. An excitation source of the solid state laser is modulated to control the pulse duration of the input beam. The dye laser receives the input beam and responsively generates an output beam of adjustable wavelength having a pulse duration corresponding to the pulse duration of the input beam. The wavelength of the output beam is controlled by adjusting a tuning element of the dye laser. The dye laser is coupleable to a delivery system for directing the output laser beam to a biological tissue target. By carefully controlling the pulse duration and wavelength of the beam delivered to the target tissue, a user of the laser system may avoid or minimize damage to tissue adjacent to the target tissue.

Title: High pressure neon arc lamp

Applicant/Assignee: UNIV CALIFORNIA [US]

Application No.: 09/968829 Applic. Date: 2001-10-02

Abstract:

A high pressure neon arc lamp and method of using the same for photodynamic therapies is provided. The high pressure neon arc lamp includes a housing that encloses a quantity of neon gas pressurized to about 500 Torr to about 22,000 Torr. At each end of the housing the lamp is connected by electrodes and wires to a pulse generator. The pulse generator generates an initial pulse voltage to breakdown the impedance of the neon gas. Then the pulse generator delivers a current through the neon gas to create an electrical arc that emits light having wavelengths from about 620 nanometers to about 645 nanometers. A method for activating a photosensitizer is provided. Initially, a photosensitizer is administered to a patient and allowed time to be absorbed into target cells. Then the high pressure neon arc lamp is used to illuminate the target cells with red light having wavelengths from about 620 nanometers to about 645 nanometers. The red light activates the photosensitizers to start a chain reaction that may involve oxygen free radicals to destroy the target cells. In this manner, a high pressure neon arc lamp that is inexpensive and efficiently generates red light useful in photodynamic therapy is provided.

Title: Nanoscopic hair care products

Applicant/Assignee: COSMETICA INC [US]

Application No.: 10/269272 Applic. Date: 2002-10-11

Abstract:

The present invention is directed to a hair treatment preparation comprising a payload in an intimate relationship to a polymeric nanostructure, the polymeric nanostructure being reactive to hair or capable of being immobilized onto or in hair. The nanoscopic nature of the entities being engineered ensures three distinct characteristics. First, the imparted attribute can be either nearly permanent or semi-permanent, depending on the attachment chemistry. In the semi-permanent version, the intended effect can be controllably erased by removal of the nanostructure by simple chemical or physical means. Second, the nanoscopic entities are invisibly small. Their presence does not deteriorate the hand or feel of the hair. Third, the nano-technology approach is infinitely flexible and adaptable.

It can be coupled with many existing dyes, colorants, UV absorbers, fragrances, softening agents and the like for hair treatment. Methods for treating hair with the hair treatment preparations of the invention are also encompassed.

Title: Apparatus and method for stimulating hair growth

Applicant/Assignee: LEXINGTON LASERCOMB IP AG [CH]

Application No.: 10/295487 Applic. Date: 2002-11-15

Abstract:

A hand-held laser device that stimulates hair growth. The device provides distributed laser light to the scalp while simultaneously parting the individual's hair to ensure that the laser light contacts the individual's scalp. A unique beam splitting reflector splits a single laser beam to ensure that energy from the laser beam is evenly distributed. The reflector is mechanically aligned with the laser source and has a zigzag structure which mechanically deflects portions of the beam as it passes over the peaks of the reflector. The portions of the laser beam form a line of laser beams that project toward the individual's scalp. Parallel rows of teeth are aligned with a central row of individual laser beams and part the individual's hair to form furrows in the individual's hair as the device is combed through the individual's hair.

The furrows create an unobstructed path for the laser beam to reach the scalp of the individual. Another embodiment uses a non-coherent light source to provide light energy to the individual's scalp. This embodiment also uses teeth to create a series of furrows to provide unobstructed access to the individual's scalp by the light. In this embodiment, the light source can be a series of LEDs or other lights aligned with the teeth, or a single elongated light source which provides light across the area exposed by the teeth. Another embodiment allows the use of a combination of laser light and non-coherent light.

at least one entrapment material, the at least one fragrance oil and the at least one entrapment material being capable, in use, of forming an entrapment structure on the surface. The composition also comprises at least one destabilizing material, which permits formation of the entrapment structure on the surface but which destabilizing material can, in use, destabilize the entrapment structure by providing at least one trigger molecule which preferentially associates with the entrapment material

and/or at least one release agent which partially disrupts the entrapment structure

and at least one compatible solvent which doesn't interfere with the formation of the entrapment structure on the surface. The present methods and compositions can improve fragrance perception, by overcoming the differences in fragrance perception that result from different surface, for example, skin, hydration levels and/or different surface types.
