Background and Objectives: Cryogen spray cooling
(CSC) is used for epidermal protection during laser
dermatologic surgery. However, further research is neces-
sary to optimize the use of CSC for many applications,
particularly in patients with darker skin types, and in
procedures with deep-targeted chromophores.
Study Design/Materials and Methods: With the objec-
tive to enhance cryogen spray atomization and introduce a
passive mass deposition control, stainless steel wire
