Lasers produce a beam of light in a single wavelength with variable intensity and pulse rate that is capable of precisely cutting, sealing or vaporizing tissue such as skin and blood vessels. Laser light is absorbed by water or dark pigments (melanin in skin, hemoglobin in blood) in the tissue and converted to heat. A variety of functional and cosmetic skin problems are treatable with lasers, which are often specialized to handle a particular type of problem.
Lasers offer many advantages over traditional, mechanical technology, including replacement of scalpels, reduced risk of infection, "bloodless" surgery, less scarring, high precision, limited injury, and increased speed of procedures. Results may even be better with lasers.
