When resurfacing lasers first entered the world of dermatology 30 years ago with all the promises of a science-fiction breakthrough, high expectations have led to mild disappointment. But today, there have been significant improvements in the laser technology, making it among the most efficient methods for dealing with skin problems.
But how does a laser work? As compared to the white light from a bulb, which is a blend of all the colors of the rainbow, a laser is a focused beam of light that has just one hue. If its intense rays will target a problem area on the skin like a scar, a brown spot or an unwanted hair follicle, the laser’s light can actually destroy such pigment or tissue and not harming the skin around it.
