Evolution of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Many nonablative laser skin resurfacing types target hemoglobin as their chromophore. This reduces the damage to deeper skin layers, and is absorbed more readily by pigmented and erythematous lesions. A popular type of superficial resurfacing laser is broadband light (BBL) laser, which uses light of different wavelengths in the visible light spectrum. This is a nonablative type laser, unlike Er:YAG and CO2 type lasers, which are geared towards addressing deeper defect such as scarring and surface irregularities. As a nonablative laser, BBL has faster recovery times and less severe post procedural discomfort and pain.
