Lasers in Cosmetic Surgery

Laser is an acronym for "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation," a class of instruments that use light energy. Lasers work by creating and amplifying a narrow, concentrated beam of light of a specific wavelength to create energy. This energy can be strong enough to cut through steel or mild enough to be safely used on human skin.

The first laser was constructed in 1960 based on theoretical concepts developed by Albert Einstein. In the decades since, lasers have transformed industries from consumer electronics and information technology to science and medicine. Today, lasers are in everyday use all around us, including in barcode scanners, laser pointers, printers, CD and DVD players, metal-working tools and laser light shows.

Lasers in the world of cosmetic surgery allow many skin procedures to be performed more quickly and precisely with an easier recovery than ever before. Medical lasers are used to remove unwanted hair, resurface the skin, treat spider veins, whiten teeth and correct vision problems. Ongoing innovations in medical laser technology are driven by the need to produce superior cosmetic results while continuing to maximize patient comfort and safety.
