BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE We evaluated the physical changes in human skin following CO2 laser cutaneous resurfacing with either the Sharplan SilkTouch handpiece or the Coherent UltraPulse laser. STUDY DESIGN/MATERIALS AND METHODS Three-hundred five human tissue samples and matched controls were used. Up to five laser passes were performed per specimen. Parameters evaluated included: lateral skin shrinkage, transient temperature change, isometric tension development, elasticity change, and… CONTINUE READING
