What Types of #Skin Problems can be Treated with #Lasers?
Acne scars, hypertrophic lesions, and skin wrinkles are the issues most commonly addressed with #CO2 #laser treatments. In addition, Actinic cheilitis, seborrheic keratosis, and psoriasis patches are all other widely used applications.
Given their far-reaching capabilities, CO2 lasers are also used in the treatment of more severe and extensive skin lesions. Warts are one such skin condition that prove incredibly difficult to remove via alternative methods; topical applications and cryogenic freezing are oftentimes ineffective when it comes to permanent removal, especially since they do not target the source.
This is where laser #surgery differs. By destroying the tissue where the wart is originating from, dermatologists can effectively neutralize it and prevent it from growing back. To make sure the precise #area is pinpointed, most make use of specialized magnifying #lenses during the vaporization #process.
#Doctors also typically wear a laser mask to avoid the inhalation of the evaporated particles. Vascular legions, #tattoos, epidermal pigmented lesions, benign dermal tumors, and burn debridement are various other uses of #modern #laser #technology.
The important thing to remember is that no matter how advanced, none of these procedures is guaranteed to restore your #skin to a healthier condition.
