Seborrheic keratosis laser removal
Seborrheic keratosis is a benign skin tumor that usually looks like brown or black patches on the skin. Laser removal can be an effective treatment for seborrheic keratosis, but the decision to use it should be made by a dermatologist after examining the patient and evaluating the characteristics of the tumor.
Laser removal of seborrheic keratosis occurs through the use of laser radiation, which is transferred to the skin. The laser energy acts on the tumor, destroying its cells. Laser removal usually does not require anesthesia and can be performed in a doctor's office. However, depending on the size and location of the tumor, multiple treatment sessions may be required.
After the procedure, the patient may experience some pain, swelling, and redness in the area to be removed. Some patients may also experience slight flaking or crusting of the skin for a few days after the procedure. Your doctor may recommend using ointments or creams to reduce these side effects.
As with any medical procedure, laser removal of seborrheic keratosis can have risks and limitations. Before deciding on the procedure, it is necessary to discuss with the dermatologist all possible risks and side effects.
