THE GOAL of the study by Millman and Mannor1 is to compare techniques of laser skin rejuvenation to hasten recovery and optimize results. They compared the clinical and histological results from resurfacing skin biopsy specimens using 2 passes with a carbon dioxide laser vs 2 passes with an erbium:YAG laser and 1 deeper pass with a carbon dioxide laser. The study measures time to reepithelialization and duration of erythema after the resurfacing procedure. Skin biopsy specimens taken 1 to 2 weeks after resurfacing were evaluated.
