Light laser: Non ablative laser is another name for lasers that don't take of the entire top laser of the skin such ablative laser examples are co2 or erbium yag laser. Non ablative lasers are fractional or radio frequency lasers. They can help reduce wrinkles and improve sundamgae with less downtime than ablative lasers but require more treatments.
