Background and Objectives: Cryogen spray cooling
(CSC) is used to minimize the risk of epidermal damage
during laser dermatological surgery. However, while CSC
can protect the epidermis from non-specific thermal
damage, the cryogen film on the skin surface may pose a
potential problem of laser light attenuation due to optical
