LASER treatment is used to target certain molecules of tissue to achieve the desired result without damaging the surrounding structure. Different LASERs are available to target molecules like melanin in pigmentation, hemoglobin in haemangioma, and water for skin resurfacing.
LASER devices are named as per the wavelength of light they produce. NdYAG, Diode, and CO2 are some of the commonly used LASERs for different skin conditions. A LASER has different parameters like pulse duration, firing
frequency, and energy level to suit various skin types and conditions. It is extremely important to choose an appropriate parameter for a successful outcome after LASER treatment. The result in LASER treatment usually needs multiple settings for visible results and there can be a continuous improvement for months. Side effects like redness, swelling, or blister formation can happen after the LASER session and it is more in an inexperienced hand. Sun protection is an important part of the procedure to minimize side effects.
