The numerous medical fields like dermatology, ophthalmology and surgery widely use laser therapy including Q-switched lasers. This review aims to provide information on the application and effectiveness of Q-switched lasers in dermal and vascular lesions. Q-switched lasers play a crucial part in the athlete’s foot treatment and onychomycosis both in mono- and polytherapy. Laser therapy remains the gold standard for tattoo removal. Additionally, laser therapy shows high effectiveness in melasma, telangiectasias and photoaging therapy. The ability to adjust precise laser parameters like length or beam energy provides tight control of the treated area, significantly reducing the risk of adverse effects.
