Laser therapy is a medical treatment that utilizes focused light, it uses light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.
In medicine, laser therapy allows surgeons a high level of precision while focusing on a small area which in turn damages less of the surrounding tissue. This form of therapy can result in less pain, swelling and scarring compared to traditional forms of surgery.
Lasers are more precise than traditional surgical instruments, and cuts can be made shorter and shallower. This causes less damage to tissue. Laser operations are usually shorter than traditional surgeries, they can often be done on an outpatient basis.
