The CO2 Laser emits infrared light (10600 nm), which is selectively absorbed by water molecules in human tissues. In the surgical mode, this laser can be used to remove a plethora of skin lesions, with great precision. It can also perform bloodless cuts through the tissue, functioning as a laser-scalpel.
- Therapeutic applications of surgical CO2 laser – removal of benign or pre-malignant skin lesions:
- Skin tags
- Seborrheic keratoses
- Milia / comedones
- Actinic Keratoses
- Genital warts
- Molluscum contagiosum
- Hypertrophic sebaceous glands
- Benefits of CO2 Laser surgery:
- Minimally invasive
- Reduced pain and discomfort
- Rapid healing
- Reduced scarring
All procedures are performed in office with use of topical or local anesthesia.
In our practice we take all the necessary precautions to ensure the safest and most comfortable environment for our surgical interventions. Wherever indicated, we prefer using CO2 Laser in order to minimize discomfort and ensure rapid and scarless healing.
