Skin lesions are abnormal growth, bumps, or textures that differ to the skin surrounding it, such as keratosis, moles, sebaceous cysts, skin tags, syringoma, and warts. The Co2 Full Ablative procedure is a German-engineered technology that makes it safer, dependable and very efficient for lesion removal.
Treatment for Moles
For mole removal, we precisely target and ablate the mole without damaging the surrounding tissue with a high heat CO2 laser. It is possible for moles to regrow after removal, but our practice offers follow-up treatments to ensure that we have entirely removed the mole lesion. Depending on the size and the extent of the removal, it typically takes 7-10 days to heal.
Treatment for Sebaceous Cysts
During the cyst removal, the high heat CO2 laser will melt down the inner content of the cyst. Complete removal of the entire cyst wall is the best way to ensure the cyst does not return; hence laser treatments often work best especially for sensitive areas of the skin, such as the face. Generally, once removed, the skin can heal by itself.
Treatment for Syringoma
The Co2 Full Ablative procedure delivers a laser through a range of narrow wavelengths, that allow going deep to the root for the removal of syringoma. It is a deep and clean treatment, that can target the clustered lesions. Laser treatments are effective for the removal of syringoma, allowing minimal scarring on the skin when compared to other methods of removal.
Treatment for Keratosis
Depending on the size and the location, keratosis can be easily removed and healed around 7-10 days, and generally do not come back in the area where being removed.
Treatment for Skin Tags
Skin tag removal uses the CO2 Full Ablative laser to precisely and completely remove the skin tag, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. It is a speedy and simple procedure. Depend on how the skin tag grows, generally, healing takes around 5 days.
Treatment for Warts
We combine the use of Co2 and 1064 laser for wart removal. The top layer of hard skin removed by the Co2 laser will form scabs and eventually peel off, whereas the 1064 laser causes the wart to coagulate without creating an open wound. The majority of the laser light bypasses the upper layers (epidermis) of the skin and concentrates on the tiny blood vessels that feed the wart near the “dermis” of the skin, causing the wart to dry up over time.
The dual laser system is very effective, and most warts are permanently removed after one treatment. Approximately 10% of warts will need a second treatment.
