Removes Moles, Oil Seeds (Syringoma), Viral Warts and Skin Tags. Treats severe Acne.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The procedure is very quick. The doctor performing CO2 needs to aim the laser at the lesion(s) to be removed. For a single lesion, it usually less than 5 minutes. For more than a single lesion, the duration may vary.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
If you have a higher threshold for pain, you would have no troubles at all. Under the effects of anesthesia, the procedure may feel like a slight tingling.
IS THE PROCEDURE DANGEROUS?
The laser beam can cause serious injuries if the laser beam accidentally shoots into the eye. To minimise the risk of these incidents from occurring, we make it compulsory for patients to be goggled during this procedure. If the patient insists on not wearing safety goggles during this procedure despite the above explanation, the said patient will be undertaking a much higher potential risk.
IS THERE SCARRING FROM THE PROCEDURE?
When performed by an expert, the laser removal procedure is deemed as safe. The risk of scarring is also minimal. There’s only about 1% of scarring that patients face post-surgery.
