Soft tissue diode lasers are becoming popular among clinicians due to their potential value in surgical procedures providing, surface sterilization, dry surgical field, and increased patient acceptance. Twenty-five patients with different soft tissue lesions were selected, and soft tissue diode laser was used for excision and wound healing was assessed by the visual method with photographs. No discomfort to the patient during and after the laser procedure was observed. In spite of using minimal local anesthesia, avoiding placement of sutures, and not prescribing any antibiotics, minimal bleeding, no edema, and good wound healing were observed. We conclude that laser treatments can be superior to conventional approaches with regard to easy ablation, decontamination, and hemostasis and are less painful during and after the procedure.
