the intense beams of light in definite
wavelengths. It aims at reduction of pain of
injury. LASER is the acronym of Light
Amplification by Stimulated Emission of
Radiation. When it comes to be used for
treating any disorder, it is named
differently as Cold Lasers, High Power
Laser Therapy (HPLT), Low-Level Laser
It is a great option:
The LLLT uses red or near to the red light
on the inflicted areas for healing the soft
tissues and to give relief to pain. When
the light of the particular weave-length aim
at particular areas, some physiological

The use of different lasers:
There are different kinds lasers, like
Carbon dioxide (CO2), Argon lasers,
Photodynamic therapy (PDT), Nd:YAG,
Laser-induced interstitial thermotherapy (LITT)
The first type of Carbon dioxide lasers is
used for treating Derma cancer, that
infection on the skin.
Second is the Argon laser that makes
superficial cuts and often used to cure
cancer in initial stage. This kind of
treatment mix with chemotherapy kills
Third is the Yag laser that is able to run
