Laser surgery treatment uses laser light to heat targeted cells until they burst. And because the laser beam is so small, this heat to treat offers targeted area precision with minimal or no damage to peripheral healthy tissue. There are different types of lasers and each has a specific use.
Laser surgery treatment is being used for numerous health related conditions. Here’s a list of situations when this type of heat treat may provide some health benefit:
- colon polyps

One of the major health benefits of laser surgery is it has minimal side effects. However, the use of this treatment could cause:
An emerging form of laser treatment is low level lasers, or what’s also referred to as cold laser. This treatment is not focused on heat to treat, but instead stimulating cells to promote natural healing.
Although low level laser treatment is controversial, it is being used by some health care professionals to treat neuromuscular related conditions, such as:
- back pain
- neck pain
- sport injuries
- rheumatoid arthritis
- carpal tunnel syndrome
Presently, the no heat treat laser is considered an experimental form of treatment.
And cryotherapy uses cold rather than hot to treat many of same skin health conditions.
