1. What Are Erbium Laser Wavelengths?

  • Erbium laser wavelengths in the 2,780-2,940 nm range are shown to be energy efficient and spatially accurate for photo-thermal ablation; however, their coagulation ability is poor. Compared to the CO2 10,600 nm wavelength, erbium lasers are 5-15 times less efficient at coagulation. The optical absorption and coagulation depths of the erbium’s wavelengths are much smaller than blood vessel diameters; this accounts for the inability of erbiums to prevent bleeding from the blood vessels severed during tissue ablation.
  • The ability of the CO2 laser’s 10,600 nm wavelength to vaporize water-rich soft tissue makes it a true “What You See Is What You Get” soft tissue-laser with maximum precision; its minimal collateral thermal effects are sufficient for hemostasis. The CO2 laser is THE ONLY practical soft-tissue surgical laser that uses the laser beam directly to cut, ablate and photo-thermally coagulate the soft tissue.

2. What Is The Erbium Laser?

  • The Erbium Laser removes superficial and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, and chest. It causes fewer side effects than CO2 lasers. One of the benefits of erbium laser resurfacing is minimal burning of surrounding tissue
