Co2 surgical laser
The CO2 surgical laser was one of the first lasers to be introduced to the medical field about four decades ago, and is still one of the most useful and efficient medical lasers available in the market. The superior edition of the Miran CO2 surgical laser continues this long tradition equipped with genuine SuperPulse mode to achieve maximum precision with minimal thermal damage to surrounding tissue.
Co2 Surgical Laser Applications
The Co2 Surgical Laser is used for a wide variety of medical applications such as in dental, surgical, podiatry, dermatology, aesthetics, gynecology, and ENT applications.

The spectral absorption of water provides the CO2 Surgical Laser with the ability to coagulate, vaporize, or cut, tissue depending on the power density and the energy level applied by the surgeon. When the laser beam is defocused, the laser vaporizes the soft tissue, and when the laser is focused the laser can cut like scalpel.
The laser beam is a highly concentrated and powerful beam of light that interacts with tissue in some extraordinary ways. Surgeons use CO2 lasers because of their outstanding precision. The laser beam is so accurate that an area less than one millimeter in diameter can be treated, while scarcely affecting surrounding tissue. Moreover, CO2 laser surgery is implemented in microsurgery and in rigid endoscopy, enabling surgical precision to a fraction of a millimeter.
Benefits of CO2 Surgical Laser
Laser surgery has a number of advantages over traditional cutting and cauterizing surgical techniques in that there is little or no bleeding, virtually no swelling, minimal pain for patients post-surgically, and such precision that only diseased tissue is removed.
The Miran CO2 Surgical Laser, for example, produces minimal swelling and scarring compared to conventional methods, and frequently reduces the length of surgery and postoperative healing. The procedures are generally less painful and, therefore, reduce the necessity of anesthesia.
