This article explores the physics of nonablative skin remodeling as well as the histologic sequelae. Although there have been several studies of nonablative skin remodeling, the exact mechanisms of action and thus the optimum device-specific parameters are not yet known. The article is divided into a discussion of the physics of laser-tissue interactions, followed by a review of the types of devices used for nonablative skin remodeling, and the histologic findings that follow treatment.
