Electrosurgery is widely accepted for performing surgical dissection procedures because of the ability to cut while simultaneously providing hemostasis to reduce bleeding. However, the common perception of electrosurgery is that it causes high tissue temperature, which results in delayed healing, excessive scarring, etc. This is indeed correct for standard electrosurgical electrode configurations, but improved materials and manufacturing methods are now used to dispel this stereotype.
Using ultra-fine tip Opti-Micro™ electrosurgical needles, designed with exceptional geometry and an extremely small surface area, allows for high current densities at very low power settings. This results in precise dissection without adverse thermal effects and excellent healing results for small-scale procedures.
Benefits in plastic surgery procedures include:
Benefits in head and neck surgery procedures include:
The OptiMicro™ Needle electrode is a sterile, single use disposable ultra-fine needle electrode for use with most electrosurgical units (ESUs).
The OptiMicro Needle electrodes are intended for use in virtually every surgical discipline where very fine, precise tissue dissection with a minimum of thermal injury is desired especially where excellent cosmetic results are desired.
