Paper Abstract

The novel method of non-ablative FP is acknowledged as an effective technique by offering significant clinical improvement while minimal risk of complications. A new time-dependent mathematical model was built up to investigate the photo-thermal interactions during FP treatments. With this model, effects of treatment-affecting parameters, such as diameter, density and energy of the micro laser beam as well as skin cooling, were numerically investigated. Different photo-thermal behaviors with various treatment parameters were particularly discussed, based on which, a novel concept of programmable treatment procedure (PTP) was proposed. With this technique, desired therapeutic outcomes may be obtained from personalized treatments.
