The LightScalpel laser handpieces connect to the distal end of the light-weight flexible fiber waveguide.
Our most versatile surgical handpiece as it combines the functionality of three handpieces in one. The adjustable spot size handpiece assures surgical dexterity allowing for all laser-tissue interactions without switching out any accessories. Its dark anodized aluminum surface makes the handpiece easily visible within the surgical site. In addition, the handpiece is lightweight providing ultimate maneuverability. Its enhanced technology ensures better patient outcomes.
Cut, ablate, or coagulate without swapping tips, handpieces, or fibers. A twist of the handle and the laser spot size diameter changes from 0.25 mm, to 0.4 mm, to 0.8 mm. From precise cutting, to hemostasis or skin resurfacing, this handpiece has you covered.
Because it is so easy and convenient to switch the laser spot size diameter, the handpiece reduces downtime and keeps you in your surgical groove. The handpiece is autoclavable. Use it and use it again, no need to buy laser expensive laser tips for every procedure.
This is a first-in-class, side-cutting laser beam handpiece, with the hair-thin laser beam 100% confined within the miniature tip/nozzle of the handpiece. The Zaghi handpieces have been designed together by Soroush Zaghi, MD, of The Breathe Institute; Peter Vitruk, PhD; and LightScalpel’s laser engineers. These handpieces are specifically devised to release tethered oral tissues using Dr. Zaghi’s frenuloplasty technique.
“It’s a great handpiece. Because you normally get a lot more bleeding than this. It allows you to go so much deeper with minimal trauma. There is no charring of the tissue at all. It just looks like a scissors case. The small capillaries are ablated. I am actually very impressed with it.” – Soroush Zaghi, MD
LightScalpel flexible fiber waveguides provide the clinician with the most natural ‘scalpel like’ feel. The fiber is durable, light, maneuverable, and offers high precision.
The LightScalpel fiber also offers convenience with its improved easy-access holster. This new holster is autoclavable and compatible with standard fiber barrier products that prevent cross-contamination.
The LightScalpel fiber is 1.75 meter long. Extended reach allows for convenient positioning of the laser in relation to both patient and doctor, making it ideal for a medical or dental office.
The LightScalpel fiber is significantly improved in design over earlier Luxar and LuxarCare fiber waveguides to provide ultimate flexibility and performance:
