Remove Unwanted Lumps & Bumps with SL Clinic’s Precision CO2 Laser
A LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) works by emitting a wavelength of high energy light, which when focused on a certain skin condition, will create heat and destroy diseased cells.
Various kinds of lasers are available that are differentiated by the medium that produces the laser beam. Carbon dioxide CO2 is used in the case of the Precision Co2 Laser.
Treats a wide range of common lesions
The Precision CO2 Laser is suitable for:
➢ Skin Tags
➢ Milia Seeds
➢ Raised birthmarks
➢ Viral warts
➢ Keloid and hypertrophic scars
➢ Actinic keratosis
✓ High-precision, tissue selective treatment (i.e., damage to surrounding tissue is relatively minimal)
✓ Less invasive than dermabrasion and deep chemical peeling (i.e., relatively shorter downtime)
The Precision CO2 Laser is an FDA approved technology. It uses one of the most researched laser technologies, with safety considerations and improvements made over a 40-year period.

Precision CO2 Laser offers visible improvements in one treatment. Depending on the size of the lesion and patient recovery, repeat sessions may be required after a 2 to 3-week interval for better cosmetic results.
After assessing your needs, the doctor can perform the treatment in approximately half an hour or so, subject to the doctor’s schedule. Otherwise, a later appointment can be made for the procedure itself.
Upon completion of recommended course, results show excellent improvements. Results vary by the individual and lifestyle choices.
Numbing cream is applied prior to treatment. Pain is minimal during the treatment, though some patients experience slight discomfort. Post-procedure, there may be some temporary pain
The wound healing time can vary between a few days to a couple of weeks for larger areas. You may experience redness, bruising, blistering and/or crusting, which should resolve in time.
Precision CO2 Laser should preferably be done before a weekend or holiday for working patients.
The Precision CO2 Laser is safe for most healthy adults. As with all medical procedures, you should be sure to disclose all of your medical history and current habits such as smoking and use of blood-thinners, medications, birth control pills, or supplements.
The Precision CO2 Laser may be unsuitable in the following circumstances:
- Patients with unrealistic expectations, such as those who seek complete eradication
- Patients with a tendency to form keloid and hypertrophic scars
- People that have taken isotretinoin within the previous 6 months
- Active bacterial or viral skin infections
- Prior ionising radiation to the area to be treated
- Connective tissue diseases
- Previous deep chemical peel or dermabrasion
- Dark complexions
- People with HIV or Hepatitis C infections
Pre-care: Ensure that you’re in a good state of health and not recovering from a bacterial or viral infection.
Post-care: The treatment area(s) should be kept clean to avoid infection. Do not pick at or peel skin. Avoid prolonged exposure of the treatment area to sunlight.
