Laser corn removal is a surgical procedure that uses laser technology to extract a corn from a patient's skin, states PlacidWay. This treatment is usually performed in podiatry centers, using lasers to painlessly sear off the surplus tissue that make up the corn.
A corn is a hardened portion of skin that occurs primarily on hands and feet and is caused by excessive tension, states WebMD. Surgical or laser extraction of a corn is seldom required and doesn't prevent a corn from returning, notes MedicineNet. The source of tension that originally produced the corn must be relieved in order to stop a corn from reforming.
