Abstract: Laser therapy in dermatology is often associated with cosmetic procedures. However, nowadays laser therapy has become a treatment modality for many dermatological diseases. We present three cases of patients with different dermatological diseases that are highly therapy-resistant. The first case is a 19-year-old man with multiple angiofibromas in the face, who was treated with ablative laser therapy. We also administered ablative laser therapy to a 64-year-old man with a big tumourous nose due to granuloma faciale, who had already tried multiple treatment options without result. Finally, a 69-year-old woman with extensive neurofibromas in the face, which had been considered untreatable, was successfully treated with ablative laser therapy. We would like to show the extensive therapeutical options of laser therapy for difficult-to-treat dermatological diseases.
