Laser stands for- Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. Each laser fires energy through a medium (gas, solid or liquid) to produce a specific wavelength of light. The wavelength determines the target of the laser, the energy the amount of destruction, and the length of time over which the energy is delivered the effect. The same laser, ie an Nd:Yag laser can destroy hair when fired in milliseconds, but tattoo ink when fired in nanoseconds.
