What is a laser?

Laser stands for Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation (the radiation of light, not the harmful radiation we think of in X-rays and nuclear power).

The laser beam can gently vaporize and/or ablate skin tissue to improve wrinkles, scars and blemishes, seal blood vessels or cut skin tissue.
