Using a guided CO2 laser beam, moles, lumps, skin tags, milia seeds, syringomas and other lumps and bumps of the skin can be precisely removed. Unlike other techniques of skin lump removal like freezing, burning by cauterizing, or with salicylic lotions which leaves a larger area of damage because of its lower precision, CO2 laser can be more precise and have minimal damage to surrounding tissue.

The number of times needed to remove the lesion depends on the size and the depth of the lesion. As with any procedure or treatment, results can vary by individual.
