CO2 Laser machines are a type of medical equipment which utilize a concentrated, high-energy, focused gas laser. CO2 lasers are significantly absorbed by water. Since the tissues of the human body contain 80% water, laser equipment such as this is used for incising tissue or even destroying tissue when necessary. The CO2 laser is used specifically on soft tissue with a particular pulse mode. Continuous wavelength CO2 laser settings can be used with scanning equipment for controlling the depth of the laser for more complex ablations.
Laser equipment can be found in virtually any surgical setting. CO2 laser equipment is one type of medical equipment sold and leased through Crystal Medical. This company has maintained a reputation for high quality products and flexible payment plans. CO2 laser machines can be quite expensive, so Crystal Medical offers rental agreements so that this equipment can be immediately obtained and procedures with the device can be implemented. There is no reason to wait to obtain the latest technology.
CO2 lasers emit a mid-infrared beam at 10,600nm. One such laser is the Er: YAG Laser, more commonly referred to as the "Erbium Laser." It is primarily used to ablate unwanted tissues for cosmetic purposes. This is known as "laser resurfacing" and has an excellent reputation for reducing or eliminating wrinkles. This CO2 laser machine has also found use in dentistry to prepare cavities for restoration.
Crystal Medical sells and leases the Sigma Adelphi CO2 Laser System. This is an Erbium Glass Fractional Laser. Scanning and cutting features are combined in this model. It has an 8.4 inch color touch screen for easy operation.
Clear aiming and the ability to modify to high power levels make this laser versatile for most treatment targets.
Cosmetically, the Adelphi laser can reduce and possibly even remove fine lines and wrinkles. It has applications for reducing age spots, blemishes, and other unwanted skin pigmentations. Deeper wrinkles, surgical scars, pocketed pores, birth marks and vascular lesions can also be significantly diminished.
With a fractional laser system such as this, the laser beam is split into hundreds of microscopic beams. This creates small treatment zones so that surrounding tissues outside of the target zone are unaffected. This is a useful type of medical equipment to have in a dermatological or dental practice.
