For example, advances in laser technology have led to the development of new laser types, such as Sciton, a maker of medical and aesthetic lasers, has started employing optical coherence tomography to take internal pictures of the skin. The company claims that by using non-invasive imaging technology, clinicians can evaluate the skin more accurately and receive feedback on the appropriate setting conditions for the best outcomes. Moreover, light is a powerful sensor, and by employing lasers, doctors and surgeons may make quicker and more accurate diagnoses based on quality at which the laser's light reflects back. This technology aids researchers in better understanding infections and developing treatments for them.

A medical laser is a device that produces a concentrated beam of light that can be used for medical purposes. Medical lasers are used in a wide range of applications, including surgery, dermatology, dentistry, ophthalmology, and aesthetic medicine. Medical lasers work by emitting light at a specific wavelength that is absorbed by a particular type of tissue. This allows the laser to target specific tissues while leaving surrounding tissues unharmed. Medical lasers can be used to cut, ablate, vaporize, or coagulate tissue, depending on the intended application.
