Co2 Surgical Laser
Portable and compact CO2 surgical laser is widely used in hospitals, clinics for general surgery and plastic surgery. The laser source is sealed off CO2, with wavelength at 10.6um. Laser is led through high precision 7-joints articulated arm to facilitate operation. The cooling system is enclosed liquid based circulation, effective and reliable.
WHY A CO2 surgical LASER?
The wavelength of the laser and how it interacts with water (the dominant component of soft tissue) is the key to understanding how the laser light cuts soft tissue
CO2 surgical LASER WAVELENGTH
The absorption/penetration depth in water for the LightScalpel CO2 laser wavelength (10,600 nm) is approximately 0.015 mm, which explains the very thin (less than 0.1 mm) thermal damage zone on the margins of the incision in soft tissue. Such short penetration depth enables high precision in removing the tissue,while simultaneously providing sufficient hemostasis.
THE LEARNING CURVE IN LASER SURGERY
The LightScalpel flexible fiber CO2 surgical laser is a soft-tissue laser scalpel that is easy and fun to use due to:
The clinical benefits it brings, such as the ability to accurately cut and coagulate soft tissue simultaneously, minimal bleeding, less trauma to the tissue, reduced postoperative pain, and increased visibility of the surgical field .
The ease and comfort of scalpel-like handpiece with easily interchangeable modalities for cutting, ablation and/or photo-coagulation
CO2 Laser surgery benefits for patients
Less Bleeding: As it cuts, the laser seals small blood vessels. This drastic reduction in bleeding enables a number of new surgical procedures that are not practical with conventional scalpel.
Less Pain: The CO2 surgical laser beam seals nerve endings and lymphatics, resulting in less edema and pain. The patient experiences a far more comfortable post-operative recovery.
Reduced risk of infection: This is one of the unique features of the CO2 surgical laser beam. It efficiently kills bacteria in its path, producing a sterilizing effect.
Quicker recovery time: Reduced risk of infection, less bleeding, less pain and less swelling often allow the patient a far quicker recovery after the surgery.
