Lesion Removal and Mole Vaporization

Moles are growths that form on the face and body. For some people the form moles make when they grow look very unsightly. They may be benign growths that pop up on the surface of your skin, but many moles may also be a sign of skin cancer. But in cases where moles are just a non-harmful blemish, patients are left wondering how to remove it.

Moles that are noticed early, especially if they grow large fast, are best removed quickly. Laser mole removal can be undertaken with a device called the CO2 laser. Eliminating the need for any invasive techniques, this is a procedure that works quickly and yields effective results. The same laser is effective for getting rid of lesions or scars on the skin as well.

Removing Common Blemishes with Laser Technology

The carbon dioxide laser or CO2 laser is a versatile device that can be used efficiently in lesion removal and mole elimination. Scarring on the body may have taken place due to medical conditions, surgery, injury, etc, and you may want a non-invasive way to diminish its appearance. The CO2 laser can be used on any part of the body that is affected by lesions or moles. It also helps to lighten skin that has pigmentation issues and spots. Other skin irregularities like those relating to texture like warts, bumps, and skin tags can be addressed as well.

Benefits of Laser Technology

This form of laser mole removal and ridding yourself of scars and lesions is regarded as a superior way of eliminating skin issues. Compared to traditional surgical techniques like cosmetic surgery, there is minimal recovery time, not to mention no scarring. The laser targets very specific areas that need treatment, leaving surrounding skin healthy.

Lasers work on the skin, and in the case of moles, lasers close the skin. By simply targeting the affected tissue, the skin is left rejuvenated and blemish-free. After the laser energy has been applied to skin, it will feel smooth and soft to the touch. Safe, simple, and quick, this technique has been gaining in popularity for its great benefits.

Skin Resurfacing

The CO2 laser is an ablative laser that can remove skin growths like moles in a single session. Cosmetically, it is used to rejuvenate the skin. It can treat fine lines and wrinkles and addresses issues of pigmentation and scars left by acne and other injuries. Lasers have a traumatizing effect on the skin. By removing the thin outer layer of skin, called the epidermis, they heat the dermis, the layer underneath. This not only removes unappealing spots and scars but vaporizes moles.

Working on the skin’s surface to create rejuvenating effects, the laser stimulates the production of fresh collagen fibers. As the epidermis heals, new skin cells will form in the treatment area, leading to skin that looks smooth and clear.

We strive to give our patients the care that we would like to receive in your position!

Taking Years Off your Skin

CO2 fractional lasers are non-invasive treatments that deliver short bursts of light to the skin. Lesion removal is effectively done as the laser exfoliates your skin, removing dead or damaged skin cells. The device used is handheld and allows Dr. Robb to control the depth and area of treatment.

Consequently, delicate areas of the face are handled with care and precision. Before treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied so that the patient feels minimal discomfort. After the treatment, you may have to avoid the sun for a while, but you may go about daily chores at home, without much exertion. You may experience redness for a week, but this will pass, and effects will last for a long time.
