Abstract

AbstractClinical lasers are currently used in outpatient clinics to treat a variety of skin conditions, ranging from acne vulgaris to the removal of birthmarks. However, over the years, nurses have seen the growth in the number of aesthetic clinics and salons that are also using lasers for the purpose of skin rejuvenation, thread vein removal and tattoo removal, but what is a laser and how does it work? This article outlines some of the basic properties of a laser and its light, and the applications and safety considerations before becoming a laser operator. Although it takes years for practitioners to perfect their skills, advancements in technology have enabled lasers to become more accessible and treatments continue to adapt and develop.
