There are some instances where a biopsy of the area will need to be completed before the laser treatment and removal to identify if the lesion is malignant or benign. A brief appointment is required prior to laser treatment for staff to examine and assess areas of concern. This appointment will determine if a biopsy is needed before treatment and if a CO2 laser is the proper course of treatment.  Please note most insurance companies require prior notification before any biopsy procedures or laser treatments can be completed.
