selective photothermolysis

selective photothermolysis

Selective thermophotolysis Laser surgery The bleaching of certain skin lesions–eg, port-wine nevi and tattoos–lesions with preferential light absorption via a short-pulsed CO2 laser that delivers ultrashort 'zaps' of energy. See Laser, Laser surgery, Port-wine nevus.

selective photothermolysis

The use of short pulses of light to treat skin conditions. This method causes less damage to normal tissue than do continuous beam lasers.
