Application of medical lasers allow surgeons to accomplish more complex tasks, decrease postoperative discomfort, reduce blood loss, achieve better wound healing and limit the chances of wound infection. Additionally, these lasers are incorporated with narrow beam of high intensity laser light that can be used for extremely precise surgical work.

The introduction of medical lasers can be tracked back in late 1960’s. Dr. Leon Goldman, an American dermatologist and surgeon studied the interaction of biological systems with laser light. In 1961, Goldman became the first scholar to use laser therapy for the treatment of melanoma. From the 1980s, more compact and powerful lasers were introduced for application in surgeries. The recent advances in laser scanning, fractionation and pulsing technologies have helped transform the clinical applications of laser surgeries. Such technological advancements in the medical laser support precise clinical results with shorter patient downtime and less complications. Hence, the aforementioned factors will significantly drive medical lasers market growth over the forecast period.
