Non- ablative technology has been at the forefront of aesthetic laser treatment. Patients no longer seek permanent, yet drastic results of laser resurfacing, which require long post-treatment social isolation, and involve potential complications such as infections or scarring. Patients are increasingly receptive to more subtle results in exchange for the possibility of returning to their social or professional activities immediately after treatment.

One new device for non-ablative treatment is the Smoothbeam laser from Candela Corporation. This device has a wavelength of 1450nm; it is preferentially absorbed by the water in the papillary dermis.
