13 07 skin lasers info canadaDescription: Two main types of lasers exist: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers remove and resurface the skin, with excellent results, but require significant downtime to recover from pain and side-effects. Non-ablative lasers pass light through the skin without removing it; multiple treatments are required for good results but little downtime or discomfort exist. For the face, lasers can improve the look of skin by penetrating deeper into the skin than a topical cream or peel can.

Lasers are also used for hair removal, eyes (Lasik), tattoo removal and body contouring.
