We use a LightScalpel CO2 laser which is state of the art technology. The LightScalpel operates at 10.6 micrometers which allows it to be precise and efficient, and it is regarded as one of the best lasers for soft tissue surgery. The laser emits an intense beam of light that vaporizes the tissue unlike the diode or “hot” laser which must come in contact with the tissue. The benefits of the this laser include:
- accuracy and precision
- minimal bleeding and less trauma to the site
- reduced operative time
- reduced post operative discomfort
Babies are able to nurse right away after the procedure. Children and parents after the procedure are surprised at the little discomfort they have afterwards.
