FAQ for CO2 Laser

Classification: FAQ



Release Time:2023-08-21 13:08

1. What is the most efficient soft-tissue surgical laser?

  • The most commonly used surgical laser in soft tissue surgery is the CO2 laser. The CO2 laser wavelength (10.6 micrometers) is highly absorbed by water contained in soft tissue. Because of its outstanding versatility and precision, the CO2 surgical laser is the most efficient and dominant soft tissue surgical laser since the 1960s. Laser surgery is widely practiced in many applications of human as well as veterinary medicine.

2. What are Co2 laser features?

  • Co2 Laser beam is an intense, monochromatic, concentrated, and coherent beam of light. Co2 laser has a wavelength of output is 0.6μm and 10.6μm and the power output of Co2 laser is about 10kW.
  • It can be focused on a very small area. And hence the laser generates very high intensity in the area of focus.

3. What are CO2 laser advantages?

  • Advantages include less bleeding, shorter surgery time, less risk of infection, and less post-op swelling. Applications include gynecology, dentistry, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and many others.
  • The CO2 laser has become the workhorse for intraoral soft tissue surgery. The emitted wavelength of 10,600 nm has ideal absorption by soft tissue because soft tissue is composed of 90% water, and CO2 has excellent absorption in water. Cellular rupture occurs from the photothermal effect when intracellular water absorbs the energy from the CO2 laser.
  • Cellular vaporization is the basis for the CO2 laser to function as a surgical tool. The wavelength allows for absorption into a soft tissue, very quickly generating heat conducted into the surrounding tissue, and creates a very narrow zone of thermal necrosis approximately 500 µ or less.

4. What is a clinical application for a CO2 laser?

  • The CO2 laser is suitable for use in non-penetrating surgery because of its certain inherent characteristics: The laser effectively ablates the dry scleral tissue and is absorbed in water or aqueous solution within a short penetration depth

5.How long does the laser tube last?

  • Rated for up to 2000 hours .. and experiencing more hours.
