The LightScalpel CO2 laser is a device that uses an intense beam of light to cleanly and precisely vaporize and seal blood vessels in the tissue. With years of experience in medicine and oral surgery, the design of the LightScalpel laser has been perfected to provide superior care for patients.
Laser surgery differs from traditional methods such as scalpels or scissors. With laser surgery, only an intense beam of light interacts with the tissue; this eliminates mechanical trauma caused by other surgical tools. The coagulation zone created by the laser is very precise - as small as 50 microns (the width of a human hair).
The unique properties of the CO2 laser allow it to vaporize, or erase, tissue selectively - even just a few cells at a time if needed. It can be used to make incisions as well as remove unhealthy tissue, making it suitable for a wide variety of surgical procedures.
