The CO2 laser remains the best surgical laser for the soft tissue where both cutting and hemostasis are achieved photo-thermally. It can be used in place of a scalpel for most procedures, and are even used in places a scalpel would not be used, such as delicate areas where mechanical trauma could damage the surgical site.
CO2 lasers are the best suited for soft tissue procedures in human and animal specialties, as compared to other laser wavelegths. Advantages of using this laser in surgery include less bleeding, shorter surgery time, less risk of infection, and less post-op swelling. The Regeneration provides a non-surgical treatment and so these benefits are also applicable, with the exception of bleeding as it is completely non-invasive and no bleeding would occur anyway.
