BACKGROUND Presented here is phase I of a three-part study of non-ablative cutaneous remodeling with a 1.45 microm diode laser configured with a cryogen spray cooling device. METHODS Eight men and two women (average age of 67 years) with Fitzpatrick skin phototypes I-IV were treated at postauricular sites. Treatment consisted of one or two passes with a 4mm spot and an average power of 12 W. Heating times ranged from 150 ms to 500 ms applied over two to six treatment cycles. One treatment… CONTINUE READING
