What is carbon dioxide (CO2) laser treatment?
The carbon dioxide laser is used to treat various skin lesions that are not flat (such as keloid scars or warts). It can be used to smooth out the skin or for cutting the skin and removing tissue. The laser emits a beam of light, which is absorbed causing heat damage to the skin cells and destroying them. If the beam is focused, it will cut the skin and seal any bleeding vessels. If the beam is defocused, the effect is scattered over a wider area and results in vaporisation of a thin layer of skin cells.
The benefit of having carbon dioxide laser treatment, rather than traditional surgery, is that it can remove the top layers of skin, often with less scarring than traditional surgery. There is less bleeding with carbon dioxide laser treatment, because the laser beam seals small blood vessels during treatment.
Avoid the sun for four to six weeks prior to your carbon dioxide laser treatment. Your skin is more vulnerable to lightening or darkening if the area to be treated is tanned.
Please let the doctor know if you are taking any antiplatelet medicines (such as aspirin or clopidogrel) or any anticoagulant medicines (such as warfarin or rivaroxaban) as they may increase the risk of bleeding during and after the procedure.
After treatment, the skin looks sunburned and may be slightly swollen. Patients report little or no discomfort post-treatment. During post-care, patients apply ointment to the skin for four to five days and should limit sun exposure and wear protective clothing.
