The carbon dioxide (CO2) laser is the gold standard in ablative lasers. The CO2 laser emits an invisible infrared beam at 10,600 nm, targeting both intracellular and extracellular water. When light energy is absorbed by water-containing tissue, skin vaporization occurs. This laser technology have allowed dermatologists to improve the appearance of scars and wrinkles and to remove benign skin growths like warts and moles.
