A collaboration of the laser physicist and aesthetic surgeons has started 10 years ago. Within the period 1992 - 2000 we have carried out the investigation of the influence of the pulsed radiation, emitted by lasers having as active mediums crystals of the aluminum-yttrium garnet and alexandrite, on the cultures of the alive tissue and the fibrosis capsules around foreign bodies in the animals. Besides, we have studied the clinical protocol: in majority, patients were women after mammary augmentation. The laser tatoo non-invasive removals were marked at the beginning of the pulse of the Q-switch neodymium yttrium-aluminum garnet laser radiation used in human. It was obtained that this laser radiation broke the cell proliferation without any mutations and morphology changes. It was also noticed much evidence that the high functional fibroblast activities were registered in fibrosis capsules of not exposed animals to the laser radiation. It was also noticed that the use of laser radiation affected the speed and quality of the productive inflammation. The softening of the fibrous capsule around the mammary implant and the reduction of the pronounced rubbers were the clinical effects of the laser radiation.
