Laser Mole removal and post procedure after care by Dr. Philip Young Bellevue | Seattle: The removal of moles with lasers mostly is done with the co2 laser. This will leave a raw area to heal. The best way to get the most optimal healing is to treat it like any resurfacing. We have a great cO2 laser resurfacing page that has links to help you understand the process. The first couple of days you need to clean the area every 1-2 hours so that no crusting develops and it stays raw and fresh. Contrary to what most people believe, you don’t want a crust there. The crust is actually food for bacteria and it will lead to a lot of inflammation and proliferation of bacteria. This page on Laser Resurfacing Post Recovery Care is more specific on this process.
