Scalpel is a multifunctional device as it combines the functionality of several devices available in the market:
• skin electro-abrasion
In a single new portable and compact device.
Scalpel is an adaptive device because in its multiple applications it optimizes patient-pathology complex, allowing the physician to solve the most problems encountered.
Scalpel main advantages are:
• Minimizing pain during surgery.
• Immediate micro-coagulation of the treated area with poor blood loss.
• No burns due to RF parasitic energies.
• No transfer of electromagnetic fields to the human body.
• No invasiveness type, even partial electric current
• Increased reactivity to postoperative healing times.
• Practical outpatient care
These features are obtained by providing the doctor with a number of functional options (Different operating frequencies, possibility of output power modulation, cauterization and even contemporary cutting, wet operation, differentiation of the applied tips for optimization depending on the required operation (tips and handles available on the market without dependence on predetermined solutions), lightweight and ergonomic handpiece). This allows the doctor to find always the best solution for the subject pathology.
Although Scalpel can be used in the field of electrosurgery, there is no need for the use of the return plate since in the operating frequency range it uses the patient's (capacitive) dispersion for the return of the working current.
In addition, the output signal of the equipment has been designed to allow simultaneous cutting and cauterization by accentuating, as necessary, one of the two functions with respect to the other with the simple operation of a knob even during patient intervention.
Finally, the possibility of two different output power levels (LOW and HIGH) allows them to be optimized for use in a great variety of applications.
These features allow you to cover multiple application fields as follows:
- Non-surgical blepharoplasty
- Mini-lifting of face and neck
- Treatment of scars and wrinkles of expression
- Removal of skin spots, xantelasms, small neoformations (seborrheic warts, dyskeratosis, fibroids)
- Treatment of scars
- Treatment of acne and acne scars
- Tattoo removal
- stretch marks on the abdomen
Applications for Dermatology
Scalpel can destroy a variety of benign skin lesions. With its wide range of power settings, Scalpel treats even the most delicate facial lesions as well as the thickest scaling lesions of the trunk. Some of the clinical applications include:
- Acrochordon (Skin Tag)
- Actinic Keratoses
- Adenoma Sebaceum
- Angiomas, Capillary
- Angiomas, Spider
- Condyloma Acuminatum (Veneral Wart)
- Molluscum Contagiosum
- Pyogenic Granuloma
- Seborrheic Keratoses
- Sebaceous Papules Syringomas
- Common Warts (Verrucae Vulgaris)
- Filiform Warts
- Flat Warts (Verrucae Plana)
If malignancy is suspected, a biopsy is recommended before treatment by Electrosurgery for histopathologic examination. The most common skin cancers are basal and squamous cell carcinomas. Appropriately selected ones may be treated easily, quickly and effectively with curettage and electrofulguration. When lesions are chosen appropriately, very acceptable cure rates for Electrosurgery can be achieved. In addition, Electrosurgery has the advantage of being easy to learn, simple to perform and cost-effective. Cosmeses is quite acceptable and in many cases, may be preferable to the cosmetic results of excisional surgery or radiotherapy.
- Basal Cell Carcinoma
- Bowen’s Disease (Squamouss Cell Carcinoma in Situ)
- Bowenoid Papulosis
- Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Scalpel can also be used as a hemostatic in plastic and reconstructive surgery, it saves time and causes minimal tissue reactions when compared to other methods.
