Well-established CO2 technology treats skin or soft tissue.

CO2 technology has been used in gynecology for benign and pre-malignant vulvar and cervical dysplasia since 1973.3 The CO2RE system offers customizable treatment capability with handpiece and lens combinations to provide physician control. Compared to traditional surgical methods, it provides greater precision, cleaner incision, and less scarring.4
