O ver the past few decades, the medical field has harnessed the unique, concentrated power of laser beams to assist with combating a host of human ailments, from cancer to cataracts. Laser light differs from regular light in that it represents a narrow set of wavelengths converted into highly focused beams. With the assistance of computers, these laser beams allow surgeons to hit their targets with a degree of accuracy impossible to achieve through conventional means, while sparing the surrounding muscle, tissue and nerves. The strength of the lasers can be fine tuned to barely scratch a surface, or slice through the thickest steel. The precision and versatility of laser therapy makes it ideal for the cosmetic field, where it has gradually become a leading modality in the fight against aging.
