The first employments of Laser therapy for I.P.P. came from back to more than twenty years ago. At the beginning it was employed only in the acute forms as analgesic laser laser was used also as anti-inflammatory following the doses of Low Level Laser Therapy. Than the science tried to use the laser effect remodelling phase of the scars, to make the fibrosis regrade in the chronic forms. Tunable laser in small optical fiber was used for ablation of calcified zones with very good results. For the slight forms were used diode laser 660 and 904 nm, alone ir coupling with CO2 laser with large spot. At first some Author used helium-Neon laser 632. Some of these lasers were combined wtih microiontophoresis and ultrasounds therapy in teh same treatment. Now we use 810 nm surgical diode laser in almost all induratio forms. The immediate results and follow up will be discussed. Thanks to these results we could conclude that IPP laser therapy can be effective in most of the clinic forms. Although the used procedure is subject to improvement.
