Laser technology has come a long way in the field of medicine. Lasers are currently used in a wide range of medical applications, including laser surgery and laser therapy. Laser surgery, also known as laser scalpel, uses a highly focused beam of light to make incisions or vaporize tissue. This technique is commonly used in procedures such as LASIK eye surgery, removal of skin lesions, and laser-assisted angioplasty.
On the other hand, low-level laser therapy (LLLT), also known as cold laser therapy or 3LT®, is a non-invasive treatment that employs low-power laser beams to stimulate healing and reduce pain. It has transformed the way we diagnose and treat patients and has been effective in managing a range of conditions, such as chronic pain, nociceptive pain reduction, and weight loss.
