What are the risks when having a CO2 laser treatment for Fordyce spots removal?

I want to have a Fordyce spots removal treatment with CO2 laser but I’m wondering what the risks of such a cosmetic intervention especially in the genital area are.

Answer for: What are the risks when having a CO2 laser treatment for Fordyce spots removal?

There are many cosmetic specialists who recommend the CO2 laser treatments for Fordyce spots removal especially due to the fact that it is a cosmetic procedure with minimized risks due to the low levels of invasiveness thus scarring and pain. This procedure involves limited discomfort for the patient and greatly reduces the chances of infection occurring due to the fact that this laser treatment immediately cauterizes and heals any cut in an instant.

Moreover, Fordyce spots removal is best performed with CO2 laser treatment because the laser treatment permits the efficient removal of the sebaceous glands leaving the skin free of spots and smooth. There shouldn’t be any risks in having this treatment performed if the pre-operation consult was professionally done and if the operative medical staff is specialized and experienced in CO2 laser treatments for Fordyce spots removal. Choose wisely the specialist and the clinic for your skin treatments and there will be no negative results, nor risks involved.
