Abstract
Although cryogen spray cooling (CSC) is used to minimize the risk of epidermal
damage during laser dermatologic surgery, optimization of the current cooling
approach is needed to permit the safe use of higher light doses, which should
improve the therapeutic outcome in many patients. The objective of this study
