In brief: Yes but is not used

Theoretically a laser could be used for this purpose but it is not treatment of choice.

In brief: No.

That would be considered a non-standard treatment for ganglion cysts, and is not offered in my practice.
Standard treatments include splinting, aspiration or removal of the fluid with a needle, and surgical excision.
