Here is another example of how Dr. Hilinski uses a CO2 laser to help reduce the visibility of a raised mole along the upper lip region. This patient, a male, was bothered by the fact he continuously cut the mole while shaving. This is not unusual for male patients with raised moles around the facial hair-bearing region. Dr. Hilinski discussed the various options available to him – ranging from shaving with a surgical blade to cutting it out. The patient opted to go with the laser procedure, which was done with a little injection of local anesthesia. Here is the video showing his procedure.
