I have a patient with partial numbness upper lip, right ala, tip of nose and right infraorbital area. (terminus of the 2nd division of the trigeminal nerve). I have used my NdYAG on the extraoral biostim setting (650us, 300mJ, 20Hz, 6W) on four occasions for 2500J each session withnot much change.
Is this not enough energy at a given session (more like 5000J or 10000J needed)?
Is four sessions not enough to begin to notice some change?
Or is this not an appropriate use for this laser?
