- Minimal scarring
- Minimal downtime
- Improved therapeutic results

The treatment is tailor-made to the specific characteristics of the growth to be treated. The depth of the treatment is precisely measured in microns of tissue. The procedure is extremely repeatable and uniform thus allowing for following treatments to be performed in the exact same manner.
