Mediclase manufactures and distributes sophisticated medical laser technology. The firm’s DermaXel CO2 laser emits continuous or pulsed infrared radiation that is highly absorbed in water. ‘Since any soft tissue is composed mainly of water, tissue at the focal point of the laser beam is instantaneously vaporised, leaving behind a thin necrotic layer of tissue that assures haemostasis, and stimulates creation of collagen in skin resurfacing procedures,’ Mediclase explains. ‘Laser surgery is widely applied in a variety of human surgical specialties such as otolaryngology, gynaecology, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, dermatology and oral and maxillofacial surgery. Out of several available laser types, the CO2 laser is considered the workhorse of laser surgery due to its unique capabilities in performing precise, haemostatic incisions, excisions and ablations of tissue.’
CO2 laser surgery is implemented in a freehand mode, in microsurgery and in rigid endoscopy, enabling surgical precision to a fraction of a millimetre, the company adds. ‘CO2 surgical lasers for human surgery are installed in thousands of hospitals and clinics around the world. These systems have so far been too large and too expensive for small to mid-size clinics. The DermaXel CO2 surgical laser now offers medical professionals the advantages of CO2 laser surgery in a compact and affordable system.’
