More proof that lasers work?

It seems like lasers are the new Botox — i.e., every year sees new cosmetic and medical human applications for them.   Botox is truly a miracle poison, and it looks like laser (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is a miracle form of radiation that keeps on giving at various wavelengths.

Apparently, lasers can regenerate teeth.

Twenty years ago, who would have guessed that a poison (Botox), radiation (lasers) and an illegal drug (marijuana) would be in the news all the time due to their ability to cure so many of our ailments!

I had previously written about my skepticism when in comes to the effectiveness of low level laser therapy (LLLT) on scalp hair regrowth, although I had often heard of the strange phenomenon of laser hair removal sometimes leading to an increase in terminal body hair (making me slightly skeptical about my skepticism)!  I am now becoming more of a believer in lasers.

  1. when you say 2020, are you referring to “in lab” cure, right?
    how long until clinical trials are done, and HL become something of the past.

  2. I am predicting a cure by 2020 where the treatment is available for public use (so not just in a lab). The cure may not necessarily be approved in the US and Western Europe, but in Asia, approval processes and trials will run faster. Even in the US, there are various companies that have already passed phase I trials (e.g., Histogen currently undertaking phase II trials).
