Abstract.

The carbon dioxide laser has been a popular dermatological tool, but for the cosmetic surgeon. The laser's usefulness has been limited due to the risk associated with hyperpigmentation and scarring, when attempting superficial aesthetic surgery. The new Tru-Pulse CO2 Laser (Tissue Technology, Inc.) overcomes this limitation by providing a unique pulse duration of 60 μsec designed to reduce thermal damage and designed to promote rapid healing. Laser resurfacing with the Tru-Pulse Laser provides many potential benefits.

Key words: Short pulse—Reduce thermal damage
