Definition : Carbon dioxide lasers used mainly to create surgical incisions, to excise or vaporize deeper tissues (e.g., to debulk tumors), and to coagulate small vessels. These lasers can be used for macroscopic surgery, for endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures, and for microscopic surgery. Surgical carbon dioxide lasers can also be used in dermatology to treat vascular, infectious, or inflammatory conditions, as well as malignant, premalignant, and benign tumors of the skin.
