LightScalpel features on-board distal end calibration for its beam delivery system that articulated arm medical/dental lasers lack.
LightScalpel’s calibration system is built-in for the entire life-span of the laser, and calibration can be performed by the user at any time (e.g., daily) at $0.00 cost.
Articulated arm lasers require annual maintenance, performed by expensive field service, to ensure that beam delivery system calibration and alignment conforms to OEM specifications.
LightScalpel’s best-selling “bumper-to-bumper” Parts and Labor extended warranty (through LuxarCare) costs just $1,000 annually (for 3-year plans) – due to durable and inexpensive all-metal tube, low voltage (32 volts) power supply and simple forced air cooling system (12-volt fans – and no flowing liquid coolants!).
LightScalpel’s extended warranty brings $4,000 – 9,000 additional annual savings compared to that of OLDER TECHNOLOGY competitor’s articulated arm surgical CO2 lasers.*
*OLDER TECHNOLOGY articulated arm soft-tissue medical/dental CO2 laser requires annual maintenance to ensure its calibration and alignment. Its fragile and relatively short-lived glass CO2 laser tube also requires expensive care to ensure conformance to OEM specifications. Besides alignment and glass tube maintenance, there are other sub-systems, that are just as high-maintenance: 1) liquid flow pumps, manifolds, gauges, and heat-exchangers, and 2) high-voltage (10,000 volts!) DC power supply. The best way to minimize medical/dental laser costs from the high-maintenance items above is to purchase an Extended Warranty, which costs up to $5,000-10,000 annually. Such a high maintenance cost is largely due to how such OLDER TECHNOLOGY articulated arm CO2 lasers are being serviced in the high-end plastic surgery market.
