Laser surgery is a type of surgery that uses special light beams instead of surgical instruments.

Laser operation is derived from Albert Einstein’s stimulated emission theory and includes other theories that help explain local tissue damage. When a beam of light hits the skin, the skin can either reflect light, diffuse it, absorb light, or let light pass through different layers of the skin. Each layer of skin uses light differently.

Certain parts of the skin, called chromophones, absorb light. When these chromophones absorb light, physical, mechanical, chemical, or temperature changes can occur in the tissue.

There are many different types of lasers, including a carbon dioxide laser, a YAG laser (neodymium or yttrium navy blue), and an argon laser. They each work in a different way and can be applied to different treatment options. The laser light can be delivered continuously or intermittently. The wavelength of the laser determines the target in the skin and the effect it can cause.

There are many indications for the use of lasers in surgery. Some of the most common indications include:

Birthmarks, “moles”
Fibromas
Viral warts: warts, plantar warts, genital warts
Skin tumors
Ingrown nails
Corns and calluses
Overgrown scars
Skin discoloration
Rosacea
Capillaries of the face and legs
Kaszaki
Lipomas
Caudate (hair) cyst
Phimosis, a short frenulum
