At Western Dermatology, we have a whole array of devices from which to choose so the most appropriate one is used. Whether this be the very accurate Erbium laser ablation, Co2 laser, non ablative fractionated lasers (1550nm and 1927nm), fine wire diathermay or even high concentration TCA. At times excision, shave or curettage is the most appropriate treatment. And if there is any doubt about the nature of the lesion then a biopsy will be taken to determine this.
