The laser therapy represents a modern and efficient method for the treatment of various disorders. The results are immediately visible after the procedure, there are no significant side effects and the healing is quick, with no residual lesions (scars).
The used laser CO2 platform belongs to the Alma Lasers portfolio, one of the most important suppliers of laser technologies.
Ablation (destruction) of benign skin lesions – the laser emits high energy pulses that cause tissue removal while making haemostasis without damaging the surrounding tissues, thereby achieving a faster and more aesthetic cure without residual scars.
Usually a single session is required for the treatment of the lesion to be removed. The treatment is carried out with local topical anesthesia (anesthetic lotion) or with xyline.
This method can remove the vast majority of benign lesions such as papillomaviruses, actinic keratoses, seborrheic warts, papilloma nevi (moles), vulgar warts, plant warts, etc., quickly without significant inflammation and effective epithelialization without residual lesions.
How does the ablative CO2 laser work?
The CO2 laser generates an energy with an infrared wavelength (10600 nm), this wavelength being very well absorbed by the water, making it possible for the target tissues to be removed by very accurate photocoagulation and very good aesthetic results.
We can treat a multitude of skin lesions:
Viral lesions: papillomas, warts, condylomas, molluscum contagiosum
- Benign tumors: nevi, seborrheic keratoses, actinic keratoses, hemangiomas, Xanthelasma
- Malignant tumors: low risk basal cell carcinoma
Usually, an anesthetic is used depending on the type, size, and number of lesions we want removed (anesthetic cream or local injection anesthesia). The lesions are removed. Apply antibiotic cream, usually no dressing is needed.
After the procedure, there are a few days of small healing peels, which, depending on the area, fall between 3-10 days. During this time, washing the area is allowed and a healing cream recommended by the dermatologist is used. It is usually recommended for aesthetic results to best avoid swimming pool, sauna, excessive sweating, and excessive sun exposure.
There are no scars in the long term, the laser being known for having very good aesthetic results.
