Laser ablatif continu, CO2 ou erbium
The ablative laser vaporizes the lesion without affecting the surrounding tissues and without surgery.
Following medical diagnosis of the lesion, a local anaesthetic is administered before starting the session. As soon as the anaesthetic starts to work, the lesion is eliminated by laser vaporisation, resulting in its removal. Only one session is required.
Bleeding and moderate swelling of the targeted area can happen in the following days, and a scab might appear. Plasters and dressings must be applied daily until healing is complete. The healing process is helped by the use of oily substances such as Vaseline or antibiotic ointment, and these must be constantly in contact with the wound, ’24-7’. Once the healing is complete, which can take up to 6 weeks, you will be left with a residual scar. Although red or pink at the start, this colour will gradually fade over several months to become much less visible.
