The Myths and Science of Surgical Lasers

Wednesday, October 3, 2018
12:00 PM to 1:00 PM

A combination of the CO2 laser wavelength, and SuperPulse settings, and tightly focused laser beam allows for a char-free and bloodless surgery and a sub-100 µm coagulation/hemostasis depth. It affords the clinician with the improved visibility and allows for more precise and accurate tissue removal with highly controllable speed and depth of incision, and a minimal post-operative pain, discomfort, swelling and edema, significantly reduced post-surgery production of myofibroblasts, diminished wound contraction and scarring.
