The CO2 laser was first used in surgery as a tool for vaporizing and removing tissues and it is still the most versatile and widely used laser system in dermatology. The CO2 laser is the laser of choice in most medical fields, thanks to its optical property of being absorbed mainly by water. It has excellent tissue cutting properties with very literal tissue damage.
The development of CO2 laser systems and the new, more sophisticated operating techniques have led to a considerable increase in potential applications for surgical lasers, which range from skin resurfacing treatments (ablative and fractional) to high-precision vaporization of many dermatological lesions.
CO2 laser is recognised as being minimally invasive and highly effective, as proven by hundreds of scientific articles over the last twenty years regarding surgery and microsurgery with this type of laser in various disciplines. Continued regenerative signaling in the dermis provides long-term remodeling.
