What to know about CO₂ lasers

The idea of a carbon dioxide laser started with Kumar Patel in 1963 while working at Bell Labs. This development opened up new possibilities in industrial, medical, and scientific fields. The efficiency of CO₂ lasers made them invaluable tools for cutting, welding, medical procedures, and scientific research.

The usage of CO₂ lasers increased quickly. High-power output and versatility were two of the biggest benefits of the early technology. In the 1970s, the healthcare industry embraced CO₂ lasers for their accuracy and ability to interact with soft tissues.

Surgeons began using CO₂ lasers for delicate procedures, including tumor removal and eye surgeries. The focused and powerful beams of CO₂ lasers allowed for greater control and minimized damage to surrounding tissues, making them indispensable tools for medical teams.

Given the continued development of carbon dioxide lasers over the years, these devices have made a monumental impact on the medical industry. Now, with the DEKA SmartXide² TRIO, the legacy of CO₂ lasers continues.

Why consider a diode laser machine

First invented in 1962, diode lasers are used in a range of research, technological, medical, and industrial applications or products.

Laser technology has replaced traditional tools in many procedures, and its applications continue to increase as the technology is further refined. For example, lasers of different wavelengths are used for a variety of otolaryngology or ENT surgeries.

Diode lasers in particular are high-performing and used to safely cut through soft tissue. Patients generally bleed less and diode lasers offer consistent results due to its excellent rate of precision.

In the dynamic field of medical technology, the SmartXide² TRIO is a standout option. The laser system is designed with advanced features and capabilities that can revolutionize hospitals and surgical centers.
