CO2 surgical laser is a modern method of removing all types of skin lesions. It operates as a bloodless and aseptic scalpel and coagulator. It is extremely precise compared to a standard scalpel operating on tenths of a millimeter. CO2 surgical laser treatment can be compared to erasing the tissue with a rubber, layer by layer, until it is completely removed. With a scalpel, the depth of a cut cannot be measuredso precisely. In addition, usinga surgical laser we can remove changes in places inaccessible to the scalpel, e.g.on the eyelid or the edge of the eyelid near the eye. The laser can remove lesions on any part of the body, including mucous membranes,oreven in intimate places.
CO2 surgical laser treatments are associated with a lower risk of scarring. They also do not cause bleeding sincethe light of damaged vessels is immediately blocked by laser causing immediate coagulation. In addition, in skin changes up to 2 centimeters, there is no need for sewing. The treatment is asepticso the tissue heals easily. The laser treatment is painless.
