Paper Abstract

Ultrapulse carbon dioxide laser ablations of rabbit skin were investigated. Macroscopic, microscopic and electron microscopic appearances of the ablation sites were evaluated. Results showed that the effect of laser treatment was on the epidermis and the papillary dermis. All or some of the cell layers of epidermis were ablated degeneration took place in the papillary dermis. Wrinkles of the new epidermis were shallow and seldom. The new collagenous fibers were more elastic which made the skin tighter and few wrinkles. Results also demonstrated that ultrapulse carbon dioxide laser stimulated hairs to grow fast.
