Evolution of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing is a technique used to reduce acne scarring by “selective phototheromolysis.” This concept employs the use of specific energy fluence, wavelengths, and laser time, in order to reach specific dermal and epidermal layers. Two different types of popular ablative lasers are the C02 (10,600 nm wavelength) and Er:YAG (2940 nm wavelength) lasers. These lasers penetrate deeper than superficial skin resurfacing lasers such as Pulsed Dye Lasers, which are commonly used for skin discoloration and other superficial blemishes.
