Abstract Many commercially available dermatologic
lasers utilize cryogen spray cooling for epidermal pro-
tection. A previous tissue culture study demonstrated
that single cryogen spurts (SCS) of 80 ms or less were
unlikely to cause cryo-injury in light-skinned individu-
als. More recently, multiple cryogen spurts (MCS) have
been incorporated into commercial devices, but the ef-
fects of MCS have not been evaluated. The aim was to
study an in vitro tissue culture model and the epidermal
and dermal effects of SCS vs patterns of shorter MCS
with the same preset total cryogen delivery time (Dtc)
