1470nm Laser is Commonly Used for Proctology
The 1470nm wavelength is known as the “water window” wavelength because it has a high absorption capacity by water while being less absorbed by surrounding tissues. This allows the laser to penetrate tissues with high water content, such as mucosa and mucus, more effectively. Additionally, it has relatively high absorption by blood and fat.
The 1470nm diode laser has various applications in proctology treatments. One primary application is the treatment of hemorrhoids. The laser at this wavelength can be absorbed by hemorrhoidal tissue, leading to coagulation, shrinkage, and ablation of the hemorrhoidal tissue, thereby reducing symptoms and promoting healing.
We Treat What We Learn
Moreover, the 1470nm diode laser can also be used for surgical procedures involving cutting and cauterization, such as the treatment of anal fissures, where thermal energy aids in wound healing. It is also utilized in the treatment of conditions like anal stenosis and perianal abscess.
