Removal of skin lesions with lasers Er:YAG (infrared, 2940 nm) and CO2 (10 600 nm)
Laser Er:YAG (infrared, 2940 nm) and CO2 (10 600 nm) are lasers which could remove skin lesions /after a dermatologist’s inspection/, and treatment is pain-free. The advantage is that the thermal energy doesn’t cause a long-term thermal tissue injury, thus reducing the risk of unwanted complications after the procedures. The limited thermal effect leads to a minimal erythema /cutaneous flushing/ and discomfort after treatment. Depending on the lesion type and size, one to several procedures are needed, with a three week interval required.
Dermatoscopy is a screening method for examination of pigmented and other skin lesions. It is performed aiming at the preventive treatment as well as the early diagnostics of malignant skin diseases. It is used to follow up the progression of benign lesions and pre-malignant skin conditions. An optical system using artificial light allows examination of the skin lesions in depth.
Removal with an electrocoagulator
Electrocoagulation is a method by which high temperature is reached over a small area through concentration of electric energy /diathermal current/, thus leading to coagulation or necrosis of the treated tissue. The temperature reached is high enough to cause destruction of the treated skin lesions which are instantly removed and repeated treatment is not necessary. It causes a mild bearable stinging pain.
Seborrheic verruca /warts/
Benign skin growths, raised with uneven surface, light brown to black coloured, located in the seborrheic zones. They often become inflamed in the zones of friction.
Benign lesions. Soft tissue fibromas have the same colour as the skin or are lightly pigmented. Their size vary from 1 mm to about 5 cm, some could reach a size of a pea. Most common, fibromas appear on the skin folds: axillas, groins and neck.
