If you suffer from skin growths, warts, xanthelasma (fat deposits around the eyelids)fibrous capsules or birthmarks, and wish to have them removed, you should consider laser treatment.

The skin growth removal technique

An Erbium laser is used to remove skin growths and marks. Because it is very tender, it can be used on any part of the body, including the face or genitalia. The computer-operated laser beam is targeted at the area to be treated and evaporates the unwanted tissue in very thin layers. The biggest advantage of the hard laser is its tenderness. Because it doesn't cause large open wounds, the healing process is fast and no other treatments or check-ups are necessary. The physical properties of a laser's beam allow for its intense action to the targeted area. Erbium lasers may also be used to remove wrinkles and a rejuvenation of the entire face.

Procedure of laser skin growth removal

Before the laser growth removal treatment

During the first consultation, the surgeon will check the state of your skin and the extent of the necessary procedure. If you want to have your birthmarks removed, the surgeon should at first make a thorough birthmark diagnosis. If you have larger growths that you'd like removed, the procedure may have to be repeated several times. This procedure is not suitable for all birthmarks.

Anesthesia

Desensitization is not needed for minor laser treatments. You will probably only feel a slight burning. If you are having a large mark removed, desensitization of the treated area may be more comfortable. Your doctor may suggest using an anesthetic ointment. Inform your surgeon if you have any allergies to drugs, especially if you have had an allegeric reaction to Xylocaine, Mezocaine, Lidocaine, etc.

After the laser growth removal treatment

Immediately after the laser treatment, a small, attrition-like wound appears in the treated area. Soon a small scab will form. The treated area is sometimes protected with an adhesive plaster that may be removed in two or three days. It may not be used in cases of small procedures. It is vital to protect the treated area from sun exposure for at least one month. We recommend using sun-block creams (50+.) No other precautions are necessary. If any undesirable symptoms develop, such as inflammation or pain, contact your surgeon immediately.

What is the result of laser skin growth removal?

The results of the treatment won't be visible for about 3 to 4 weeks after the procedure. When the scab disappears depends on the extent of the treatment and on the state of your skin. If the result is not satisfactory, the procedure may have to be repeated several times.
