Co2 Laser

Co2 laser is used in many surgical and dermatological procedures. It is preferred because of reduced bleeding, less post-operative pain, and reduced risk of infection. Laser dermabrasion is used to treat mole, seborrhoeic keratosis, burn scars, ulcers, and leukoplakia. It is also successfully used in removing wrinkles, acne scars, and sunburns.
