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.
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. However, 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.
