Medical treatment commonly uses Excimer Laser for treatment in several areas. One of these treatments is skin related medical conditions.
Although medical science developed rapidly during the 20th century but the surgical operations and treatment on delicate and microscopic areas of human body was always been a problem. Hence Excimer Laser, solved this problem by carrying out delicate medical procedures on human body. Especially on sensitive organs such as eye and fine areas of skin.

The credit for Excimer Laser technology goes to Rangaswamy Srinivasan, Samuel Blum and James J. Wynne at IBM’s Thomas. J, Watson Research Center. In 1980-83, they studied how ultraviolet Excimer Laser affects biological material. They observed during the study that laser could make precise cuts that would be ideal for conducting delicate surgeries.
President Barack Obama honored the team members at IBM’s research center with National Medal of Technology and Innovation. For their work related to the Excimer Laser in 2012.
The above findings were very encouraging that led to the application of Excimer Laser in medical treatments. It ultimately solved the problem of dealing with very delicate parts of human body.
The greatest benefit of laser technology in the treatment of delicate operations on human body is that these laser-based devices can reach and treat very fine and subtle body tissues without any collateral damage.
Excimer Laser makes it possible to disrupt the molecular bonds of the surface tissues in a tightly controlled manner. This is achieved through surgical removal of body tissues. There by, saving patients from hazards of harmful effects of microscopic surgeries. One of the important uses of Excimer Lasers has been in angioplasty and treatment of skin. Application of Excimer Laser, in fact, revolutionized the heart surgery and the treatment of skin ailments.
Besides hair removal, Excimer Lasers can treat a variety of skin conditions. Excimer laser has treated some of the common skin diseases given below:
|Common Skin Diseases Treated by Excimer Laser|
|Name of Disease||Name of Disease (Urdu)||Description|
|Psoriasis||Chambal||A skin disease marked by red, itchy, scaly patches|

|Atopic||Atopic (Allergy)||Denoting a form of allergy in which a hypersensitivity reaction such as eczema or asthma may occur in a part of the body not in contact with the allergen.|
As a result of manufacture of new and much smaller and delicate machines the use of Excimer laser is rapidly increasing
Dr. Ikram is very particular in updating his clinical practices with latest technology. That is why his skin clinics has the most modern Excimer Laser devices that ensure treatment of very fine skin tissues without harmful effects.
Because of the above Dr. Ikram has successfully treated several patients through latest Excimer Lasers. So the high level of satisfaction and confidence of his patients is a testimony of revolutionary role of these devices.
