Lasers represent a form of energy that can be manipulated to accomplish a number of medical procedures from the complex surgical removal of an acoustic neuroma in an operating room(OR) to the less invasive removal of unwanted body hair or facial rejuvenation in a salon or spa. Regardless of the procedure, it is important to understand the properties and safety aspects of laser utilization. This knowledge will enable you to manage a safe and successful laser and light therapy practice and will help you in a physician office to prepare the patient for Laser application. Lasers convert light to heat and target specific superficial structures or chromophores through a process of selective photo-thermolysis. RF produces heat to a greater volume of tissue when the tissue's electrical resistance converts the electric current to thermal energy deeper in the dermis. Your study will emphasize: • Laser & Light Applications • Definition of Laser • Physics • Energy measurement and delivery • The three principal parts of laser construction. • The 3 characteristics of laser light. •The chromophores tissue reaction and absorption. • Characteristics of Laser Light •Therapeutic Properties of Lasers • Who regulates esthetician licenses and use of laser/light therapy devices. •The Difference between A Laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). • Radio Frequency • LED - Biological Effects of Various Wavelengths • FDA Device Classification • The Meaning of Intended Use • Laser Hazard Classes
