    Health technology is a very exciting field and keeping up to date with these new cutting-edge trends that will revolutionize healthcare is often a job in itself.

    If you're planning or currently enjoying a career in the medical sector, what tomorrow may bring in terms of new technology is one aspect that will keep your job exciting and fresh.

-------------------------------------

Laser technology in particular is rapidly expanding in many different healthcare sectors so specialists with a laser and light core of knowledge are definitely on the rise too.

Cosmetic and aesthetic surgery

Laser treatment is very popular in the cosmetic sector thanks to its efficiency and versatility. Laser hair removal for instance offers a durable solution to prevent hair growth. Many sessions can be needed and it’s not necessarily entirely permanent but it works on most skin types except for white, grey and ginger hair.

It’s also making waves in the anti-ageing market, with new treatments popping up every year. Laser resurfacing consists of removing a layer of skin in order to smooth out lines and wrinkles. Photorejuvenation on the other hand accelerates the production of collagen to plump out the skin and give a more youthful look.

Lately, it’s also proven very effective in treating deep acne scars and in removing tattoos and other types of skin blemishes.

2. Laser eye surgery

There are many different types of laser surgeries used to correct poor or short eyesight. One of the most currently advanced technologies is known to be the Wavefront LASIK procedure. Not only does it correct short-sight, but it also treats all other spherical irregularities on the eye that are sometimes responsible for blurriness.

3. Cancer treatments

Laser therapy is now widely used to help treating cancer by destroying tumorous cells. Different types of lasers can be used depending on the targeted zone. Carbon dioxide and argon lasers are helpful in order to destroy cancerous cells without going too deep, especially in the case of skin cancers. On the other hand, Nd:YAG lasers can target specific areas of the body where cancer has spread in order to remove the tumors without affecting near-by areas.

4. The most versatile surgical tool

Advanced laser tools are also very helpful during heavy surgical operations, when they are used like “scalpels of light” to reach organs that would be very hard to reach otherwise. It involves less bleeding than any other methods, minimise risks of infection and it’s also faster and less costly. Heavy surgery aside, it can used to treat an endless list of less severe afflictions such as chronic angina and headaches, nosebleeds and ulcers. Lasers have truly become essential for all healthcare specialists.
