What is a laser?
A laser is a light source that can emit a large number of light beams in a short space of time. The word “laser” is an abbreviation and stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.
Lasers are widely used in our daily lives. They are used to play music CDs, read barcodes in the supermarket, for land surveying or for laser shows. Lasers are also increasingly used in the healthcare and cosmetics worlds.
Laser skin treatment
The purpose of a laser is to damage specific structures in the skin by heating them for short periods, e.g. for removing superfluous hair. The type of laser and the strength of the beam determine which skin structures are damaged.
Types of laser treatment
Some examples in which a laser can be used:
- superfluous hair
- signs of ageing in the skin
- superficial varicose veins on the legs
- skin conditions such as sun damage
