Common Laser Surgery Terminology

The phrase laser surgery refers to any treatment that uses a laser instead of a scalpel to remove tissues. Since there are several types of laser surgery, your doctor might not use all of these terms when discussing your medical options. Knowing these key terms, however, could make it easier for you to communicate with your doctor so that you can choose the best treatment option for you.

  • LASIK - LASIK stands for laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, but you will more likely hear it referred to as laser eye surgery. This is a refractive laser operation used to cure eye problems such as nearsightedness, astigmatism, and farsightedness. Although LASIK and other types of laser eye surgery, such as PRK and LASEK, are much more reliable at restoring vision for most patients than previous forms of eye surgery, they permanently alter the cornea, which can make it difficult for doctors to treat cataracts and glaucoma that might develop in the future.
  • Laser Epilation - Better known as laser hair removal. This aesthetic procedure removes unwanted hair from the face or body with a low-powered laser. Most estheticians can perform this treatment. A license is not needed. Many people still choose to use centers that specialize in hair removal and beauty techniques.
  • Laser Dermabrasion - Laser dermabrasion is a technique that uses a laser to remove acne scars and unsightly skin blemishes by gently sanding the surface of the skin. Laser dermabrasion is a relatively simple, outpatient procedure performed at numerous beauty clinics and dermatology centers.

    When looking for the laser surgery treatment center that you want to have laser surgery at, it's good to know which surgery you want ahead of time, so you can compare costs with other centers. If you have poor vision, and would like to correct your farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism, you should consider getting Lasik surgery. Lasik eye surgery can correct these issues with vision most of the time, if the case isn't too severe. To find out if you are a good candidate for this corrective procedure, make an appointment with a doctor. For the more cosmetic surgeries, including facial laser hair removal and liposuction, you will want to find your surgeon of choice on the internet using these terms in the search engine. Aside from acne, the other cosmetic surgeries have to do with the skin include stretch mark, varicose vein, tattoo, and scar tissue removal. Once you have determined the type of surgery you would like to have done, begin the search for a good surgery center online and in the yellow pages. After finding a few in your area, begin calling around to compare prices. Keep in mind that the differences in prices could have to do with the level of service. Some centers may include things, like overnight monitoring, the others aren't. Regardless of the surgery, whether it's plastic or corrective, you should assess the complications that could be involved. After finding the clinic with the right center for your facial acne treatment, eye surgery, or other laser procedure, schedule a meeting with your potential doctor. He or she may inform you of some unwanted effect, an unknown risk, or some benefit that you weren't aware of. Take the time to find out as much as you can before making any commitments.
