Dr. Niamtu article about multiple pass, high energy laser skin resurfacing

In September 2008, Dr. Niamtu published an article proving that multiple pass, high energy laser skin resurfacing could be safely performed without wiping away the char layer (burnt skin). Previous to this article it was thought that leaving the laser char would complicate the result but Dr. Niamtu performed the first human histologic study in the scientific literature to prove this point and dispel previous articles on this subject. The problem with the previous methods of wiping char with gauze between laser passes increased the damage to the skin and resulted in longer healing, increased post laser pain and increased skin redness after laser. Dr. Niamtu’s research has made laser recovery faster and easier.
