A topical proprietary product, PomegaMD, was used in a prospective, randomized, controlled, evaluator-blind clinical trial to assess the safety and efficacy of Pomega topical CLA treatment to promote healing and improve skin quality following ablative laser
resurfacing of the face.
The spectrum of laser skin resurfacing: Nonablative, fractional, and ablative laser
Masson Trichrome stain revealed well-organized collagen bundles in the papillary dermis parallel to the epidermis with compact appearance, the only difference between samples after ablative and after fractional laser is that the ablative laser
samples showed more parallel and dense collagen bundles also a horizontal oriented fibrillar collagen.
Only one study evaluated the carbon dioxide ablative laser
(CO2) in the treatment of onychomycosis .
Debriding and cleaning efficacy of irrigation was enhanced by a new erbium laser technique coupled with a photon-induced photoacoustic streaming (PIPS) having a newly designed tapered tip with specific minimally ablative laser
Treatment of irregular astigmatism with a 213 nm solid-state, disodepumped neodymium: YAG ablative laser
. J Cataract Refract Surg 2004; 30: 2145-51.
Halo simultaneously targets both the skin's surface (epidermis) and its deeper structures (dermis) with two different laser wavelengths enabling dramatic improvements in skin tone and texture, and significant reduction of pores, for radiant skin without the downtime typical of ablative laser
The Halo is expected to be a game changer in the area of cosmetic lasers and according to industry experts is being hailed "the first real innovation in lasers in the last decade." The Halo combines two singular types of laser depths allowing patients to achieve the impressive results of an ablative laser
while enjoying the quicker recovery times that a non-ablative treatment provides.

resurfacing," Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, vol.
This procedure combines the efficacy of ablative laser
resurfacing with a more favorable side effect profile than traditional ablative therapy.
Other research involves the use of the fractional ablative laser
in conjunction with traditional tattoo-removal lasers to speed up clearance - resulting in as much as 50 percent tattoo ink removal in just one treatment session.
Other topics include the non-Fourier thermal behavior of skin tissue in response to pain, the effect of menopause on skin aging, distributed parameter estimation of dermal chemical absorption, and ablative laser
treatment for cutaneous facial rejuvenation.
