In brief: Laser=light

See: http://en.Wikipedia.
Org/wiki/laser. Light, a form of electromagnetic radiation, see: http://en.Wikipedia.Org/wiki/electromagnetic_radiation, used for treatment is just a way of applying heat, i.e. The heat generated when the light is absorbed. What then happens ; the results (down the road) are a result of both the heat damage ; the healing response, locally ; body wide, thus no guarantees.
