Abstract

Skin permeation-enhancement technology is a rapidly developing field, which could significantly increase the number of drugs suitable for transdermal delivery. In this review, we highlight recent advances in both ‘passive’ and ‘active’ transdermal drug-delivery technologies, as well as in the laser ablation method. This paper concludes with a brief forward-looking perspective discussing what can be expected as laser technology continues to develop in the coming years.
