Laser-tissue interactions involve (1) the physical mechanism of interaction [photothermal, photochemical, photomechanical], (2) the biological level of interaction [tissue/organ, cellular, organellar], and (3) the time course of the interaction [immediate physical effect, short-term biological response, long-term healing and structure/function].
