Benefits of Laser Removal of Warts and Neoplasms
Laser removal of neoplasms is one of the progressive methods of treating benign tumors. Due to the small diameter, the installed depth of exposure, the laser beam works extremely accurately, without damaging adjacent tissues, leaving almost no trace. This is very important when removing, for example, moles on the face and other exposed parts of the body. This is a quick and almost painless treatment method, which is much better in comparison with the removal of warts with liquid nitrogen or home remedies. The number of relapses and complications is reduced, the healing time of wounds is reduced, the one-stage procedure is ensured. As a result, a good cosmetic effect is available for both adults and children.
Currently, in a polluted environment, with a decrease in immunity, burdened by heredity, etc., benign formations that are diverse in structure and origin are formed on the human body, which, in addition to deteriorating the aesthetic appearance, often “interfere” due to increased trauma.
Existing neoplasm removal techniques:
Surgical method (excision with a scalpel). This method is resorted to only in cases where the element (for example, a wart) is large enough, or the diagnosis is difficult (with further histological examination). After the operation, a scar always remains, even if a neat cosmetic seam has been applied.
Cryodestruction (removal with liquid nitrogen) – it is not always possible to precisely control the depth of exposure to tissues, therefore, the possibility of a burn of surrounding tissues, the result of which can be a scar, is not ruled out. The formation dries in the form of a scab and disappears within 7-10 days. There is also the possibility that the neoplasm may not be completely eliminated, in which case a second procedure will be required.
Electrocoagulation – the depth of exposure is controlled, but the thermal damage to the tissues around the treated area is quite large, so there is always the risk of a noticeable scar anyway.
Radio wave method.
Chemical coagulation (the use of special liquid compounds that cause tissue necrosis). Such moxibustion in modern cosmetology and dermatology is almost not practiced due to the high risk of skin damage: burns, scars.
Laser removal method. In one visit, you can get rid of multiple neoplasms, without scarring, blood and pain.
What formations can be removed with a laser?
Papillomas are skin lesions from yellow to brownish-brown in color, can be flat and convex. They are mainly located on the skin of the neck, in the armpits, on the skin of natural folds. The procedure for laser removal of papillomas is painless and has a clear cosmetic effect.
Warts are skin lesions caused by a virus. They represent localized growths of keratinized skin of gray-pink or yellowish color, merging with each other, forming a mosaic pattern. Most often located on the back of the hands, feet, soles. It is possible to conduct several sessions (especially with plantar warts, since they germinate more deeply in the tissue).
Atheroma (cyst of the sebaceous gland) – a round formation with a smooth surface of white or yellow color, consists of thickened sebum. This is the most common skin cyst with a favorite location on the face, scalp, neck, chest. Often inflamed.
Molluscum contagiosum – pink formations with a depression in the center, ranging in size from 1 to 5 mm. Caused by a virus. Rashes can be in open areas of the body and genitals. If formations are not removed on time, they grow in huge quantities.
Milium is a miniature cyst of the skin. It is a yellow or white papule with a diameter of 1-2 mm with a favorite location on the eyelids, forehead and cheeks. Rashes are multiple. Removable with a laser without defect on the skin.
Nevus (mole) is a small, clearly defined hyperpigmented spots, papules or nodes formed by the accumulation of pigment cells in the epidermis, dermis. Exist from birth, or as a result of exposure to the sun. Some of them can degenerate into melanoma. If such changes are noted during life: a rapid increase in size, uneven coloring, irregular shape, ulceration of the nevus in the absence of trauma, pain, itching, bleeding – in this case, an oncologist’s consultation is necessary. Only after the “permission” of the oncologist is it possible to be removed in a clinic.
Keratoma is the most frequent “age” education. More often gray-brown in color, from 1 to 3 cm in size, round or oval in shape, as if glued to the skin, with peeling or crusts on the surface. Located on the face, trunk, limbs. The number is the most diverse. Has a genetic predisposition.
Genital warts (genital warts) are human papillomavirus-induced growths on the genital skin.
