The advantage of the CO2RE laser over surgery is that the laser cuts and coagulates at the same time.
What is it?
The CO2RE laser is a superpulsed CO2 radiofrequency system that targets water.
How does it work?
The CO2 laser is used for larger lesions. For smaller ones, D.A.S is preferred. Its special laser causes total tissue vaporisation when set in surgical mode.
Recovery time and mode
Stitches are not required and the risk of infection is much lower.
This laser technology can be used without renouncing histological examination. In such cases, removal is preceded by shaving with a scalpel to take tissue for histological examination, and then laser removal is performed. If the result is positive, further surgical enlargement is necessary (as is also the case if surgery is chosen from the outset). In the event of a negative histology, a better scar is guaranteed.
