New Frontiers in Laser Surgery
The simultaneous advances in engineering, medicine, and molecular biology have accelerated
the pace of introductions of new light-based technologies in dermatology. In this
review, the authors examine recent advances in laser surgery as well as peer into the future
of energy-based cutaneous medicine. The future landscape of dermatology will almost
undoubtedly include (1) noninvasive imaging technologies and (2) improved “destructive”
modalities based on real-time feedback from the skin surface.
