Abstract

Introduction: Endolaser or Endolift® is a minimally invasive procedure carried out using a diode laser with a wavelength that can range from 980 to 1470 nm. This laser is inserted into the subcutaneous layer through an optical fibre probe to reduce fat and induce skin retraction via neocollagenesis.

Objectives: To assess the effects of the 1470 nm diode laser on subdermal lipolysis and rejuvenation based on evidence-based practice.

Methodology: An evidence-based literature review was conducted to elucidate the impact of the 1470 nm diode laser on facial rejuvenation. This review involved an exploration of scientific articles published and accessible within the databases MEDLINE, PubMed, SCIELO, and LILACS, spanning the years from 2013 to 2023.

Results: Six reports utilising the 1470 nm diode laser for aesthetic purposes were identified, underscoring the prevailing knowledge gap regarding applying the 1470 nm diode laser for aesthetic purposes such as lipolysis and as an adjunct for facial rejuvenation.

Conclusion: While the 1470 nm diode laser is currently widespread within the domain of facial aesthetics, a constrained body of research with a high level of scientific evidence exists. This suggests an urgent requirement for well-designed further investigations, such as randomised clinical trials.
