Removal of neoplasms
Laser removal is carried out by a dermatologist. Such method makes it possible to get rid of the neoplasm with minimal damage to the healthy tissues. The procedure leaves a small inconspicuous scar in the affected area.
The anesthesia during the procedure is local with special gel. The time of the correction depends on the type and size of the neoplasm, but it is usually no more than 30 minutes. Laser correction is used for warts, various nevi, papillomas, and for contagious mollusks, seborrheic keratosis, keratitis, age lentigo, and cutaneous horns.
Surgical correction is carried out by a surgeon and in cases when the neoplasm is malignant – by surgeon oncologist. It is used for basal cell carcinoma, lipoma, atheroma, dermatofibroma, radiation injury and residual tumors.
Surgical removal is used when the size and depth of the neoplasms makes it impossible for laser to remove them. At the same time, the doctor performs a surgery to eliminate the consequences of the removal.
