WHAT IS CO2 LASER LESION REMOVAL?
CO2 laser lesion removal consists in the use of a laser beam, which is aimed at a skin lesion. A CO2 laser is used due to its possibility of precise tissue removal.
CO2 laser emits energy, which is absorbed by the water in the skin cells, resulting in warming up and evaporation. As a result of this process, the lesion is removed.
CO2 laser lesion removal may be used for various body parts, including intimate areas, for example for the removal of viral warts, genital warts, pearly penile papules or scars. Compared to surgical removal, this is a less invasive method.
Before the procedure, the doctor will carefully assess the skin lesion to determine if it is suitable for laser removal.
- Viral warts
- Genital condyloma
- Pearly penile papules
- Skin hyperpigmentation
- Tanned skin
- Taking photosensitising agents
- Tendency to develop scars
- Oral retinoid therapy
- Neoplastic diseases
- Inflammation, bacterial and viral infections
RECOMMENDED FREQUENCY:The number of CO2 laser lesion removal procedures, including lesions in the intimate area, depends on many factors, such as: the type and size of the lesion, the patient's health condition and individual aesthetic needs.
In some cases, especially with minor lesions, a single removal procedure may be sufficient, however in others several sessions may be needed. The final decision on the number of treatments is made by the doctor after appropriate qualification of the patient.
