CO2 Laser Surgery

What are the benefits of laser surgery?

  • Less bleeding — the laser seals small blood vessels during surgery and speeds up surgery by minimizing bleeding.
  • Less swelling — no physical contact except the invisible laser beam. The tissue will not be crushed.
  • Sterilization—the laser sterilizes the surgical site as it cuts. Bacteria and viruses are vaporized by the laser during laser surgery.
  • Precision—the beam direction and power can be controlled precisely to remove thin layers of tissue and produce minimal side effects on the surrounding healthy tissue.

What is laser?

A laser system supplies highly focused and powerful beam of infrared light that can selectively interact with tissue.

How does laser work?

Our CO2 surgical laser system uses controlled pulses of light to precisely destroy, cut, or remove target tissue by vaporizing tissue.
