We know that lasers are good for skin upkeep but what do they actually do? The term laser is an acronym for ‘Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation’. A laser device converts light of various frequencies into an extremely intense, small, and nearly non-divergent beam of monochromatic radiation. This may be in the visible or invisible spectrum of light. The laser beam is capable of mobilising immense heat and power when focused at a close range. Lasers act on skin tissue and take care of everything from scarring to hair removal to hyper-pigmentation. Presently, these are the best and most popular laser treatments for Indian skin.
