Nonablative resurfacing.

Author information

  • 1Skin Laser and Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, Westwood, USA.


Nonablative, or subsurface remodeling, is the newest approach to improving photodamaged skin. Because the degree of collagen remodeling is not as great as that of other, more destructive ablative approaches, the process can be ideal for individuals with limited time, wishing to improve (with lasers) the quality of their sun-damaged skin. In addition, nonablative laser systems may be used to maintain the rejuvenating effect of ablative laser systems.
