Laser Mole, Skintags & Wart Removal

Co2 ablative laser resurfacing has been the “Gold Standard” for non surgical facial rejuvenation and removal of facial skin wrinkles and photo aging since 1995.

Advent of short-pulsed high energy that limit skin heating has revolutionized laser skin resurfacing. These lasers are capable of removing layers of skin and unwanted tissue in an impressively precise fashion, leaving only a narrow zone of thermal necrosis.

Co2 ablative laser resurfacing using the Ultrapulse CO2 laser can achieve very significant facial rejuvenation including wrinkle removal, skin tightening and removal of pigment and photo aging skin changes.
