Soft Tissue Diode Laser Surgery

Soft Tissue Diode Laser Surgery

Lasers are named for the substance which is stimulated. In the diode laser this substance is semiconductor. This innovative technology has produced a laser that is compact and lower in cost. Most of the research has focused on the 810nm diode laser. This wavelength is ideally suited for soft tissue procedures since it is highly absorbed in Hemoglobin and melanin. This gives the diode laser the ability to precisely cut, coagulate, ablate or vaporize the target tissue. 1
