The CO2 laser is one of the most widely used lasers in the dermatology field. As skin contains a very high water percentage, this makes the CO2 laser ideal for precise, safe ablation with good hemostasis. The CO2 laser remains an efficient, precise, and safe system for the dermatologist. Technological advances in CO2 laser construction have meant smaller spot sizes and greater precision for laser surgery. Laser treatment is also used in the field of esthetic dermatology to treat alopecia and acne, and many devices designed for facial cosmetics to treat photo- and chronologically-aged skin, including wrinkles and sagging, have become available.
