  • non-ablative resurfacing - problems associated with older ablative devices;
  • older non-fractional ablative resurfacing technologies and non-invasive rejuvenation search;
  • “lunchtime rejuvenation” - photoaging signs without epidermal damage;
  • intense pulsed light (IPL) sources and mid-infrared lasers;
  • laser–tissue interactions and subsurface remodeling;
  • non-ablative technologies, patient selection - for success of procedure;
  • pulse duration or pulse width - thermal relaxation time (TRT) of lesions treated;
  • transient discoloration following IPL photorejuvenation - treatment complication;
  • fractional non-ablative infrared lasers;
  • non-ablative photorejuvenation, fractional non-ablative treatments - milder clinical improvements
