Various types of surgeries in which laser is used effectively:-

Laser makes it possible to remove diseased tissue around a dental implant without causing any significant harm to the healthy tissue. It is gentle, reducing inflammation and discomfort while encouraging new bone growth to reinforce and save your implant.

  • Cosmetic facial Laser surgery

Laser is used to treat facial lesions and skin wrinkles by removing the surface layer of skin allowing the underlying skin to re-epithilialize in a uniform manner. E.g. tissue tags, epidermal nevi, lentigines, superficial pigmentation, skin wrinkles, scar revision, melisma etc.
