Background and Objectives: Cryogen spray cooling
(CSC) is used to minimize the risk of epidermal damage
during laser dermatologic surgery. Since optimization of
CSC permits the safe use of higher light doses, which
improves therapeutic outcome in many patients with
superficial skin lesions, studies have focused on under-
standing spray­surface interactions and cooling dynamics.
