Lasers are used for a whole range of different things today. For example, they are used in cutting and welding, military devices for marking targets and measuring range and speed, measuring a room, car headlamps, optical disk drives, barcode scanners, laser printers, and a whole lot more. The word laser is derived from “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation”.
We can use a laser for several different procedures on the skin. Laser skin resurfacing in San Mateo is used to remove layers of skin very precisely. As the skin begins to heal, new skin cells will form and give the skin a much tighter, smoother, and younger looking surface.
We use lasers for other things too. For instance, we can use a laser to remove unwanted hair. We have always said that hair is a funny thing because you can have a lack of it where you want it (on your head) and find it growing where you don’t want it, as in under your arms if you are a woman.
We can use lasers for more. For instance, many people today, especially when they are younger, will have a tattoo – often without thinking about it at the time, but just because it seemed like a good idea. You might be head over heels in love and want to demonstrate that by having a tattoo of his or her name.
Unfortunately, relationships don’t always last. In fact, quite a lot of them break up. Then you can find you are stuck with a tattoo which is nothing short of embarrassing.
Until recently you were indeed stuck with it, but today we can use a laser to remove that unwanted tattoo and restore you to the way you once were.
So, yes, we can use lasers for a variety of things other than laser skin resurfacing in San Mateo.
