fractional photothermolysis

fractional photothermolysis

A method of laser skin resurfacing in which laser energy is directed at pinpoint, broadly separated islands of skin instead of larger swaths to remove cosmetically unappealing blemishes in skin color and texture. The technique is used to minimize the time it takes to restore normal epithelium to the treated surface.
Synonym: fractional ablation
