    Introduction. Skin surgery includes removal of skin lesions or sampling them (biopsy) to confirm a sample will be sent to a pathologist who will examine the skin under a microscope.. The initial healing process occurs over weeks. Remodelling and strengthening of the wound continues for 6 to 12 months following skin surgery. Severe laser surgery complications are not common occurrences. In most centers offering laser refractive surgery including LASIK, the success rates are around 95% to 99%.Over 2 million procedures have been performed throughout the world, and this number continues to grow on a daily basis.

Continuous wave (CW) lasers, the first medical lasers to be used, continue to be effective, but are extremely operator dependent and can potentially result in significant risks.   Laser eye surgery can cost anywhere from $ to $8, or more based on your healthcare plan and the provider or facility you use for your surgery. The costs of laser skin .

      The first cutaneous lasers used continuous beams of laser light. Even when wavelengths relatively specific for a particular chromophore were used, their continuous output dictated that the tissue dwell time (ie, how long the laser was held to the skin) depended on the speed of the surgeon's hand—typically long enough to cause a buildup of thermal energy that diffused to nontargeted . The book is well written and covers a wide range of topics in cutaneous and cosmetic surgery. Topics include laser physics, low-energy laser systems, anesthesia for laser surgery, treatment of vascular lesions (including leg veins), treatment of pigmented lesions and tattoos, laser resurfacing, treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids, and.
