New laser treatments yield better results, fewer complications

Article-New laser treatments yield better results, fewer complications

New York -- The PRNewswire reports that the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) notes better results, fewer complications, and shorter recovery time as the goal of new generation laser treatments. The use of lasers is expanding, and lasers are being used to treat skin disorders, excessive body hair, and leg and face veins.

Ablative lasers, non-ablative lasers, Fraxel lasers, and laser hair removal are each making their mark in the practice of cosmetic surgery. Each works according to different mechanisms; knowing what is needed for an individual patient helps determine what type of laser to use.

Laser technology continues to evolve, and in the future, it is expected that it will provide even shorter recovery times with fewer side effects and better patient outcomes. The ultimate goal is the design of lasers that are extremely safe and gentle for the patient.
