What are the risks?
With any procedure there are risks involved. Swelling and discomfort are the most common side effects following the procedure but these typically heal within a week. The main risks for CO2 laser treatment of PPP are inflammation, infection, hematoma, scarring, swelling, bruising and numbness. Most problems and discomfort will resolve with time as the treated area heals.
Risks specific to you as an individual will be discussed during your personal consultation. Minor complications that do not change the result of the procedure occur for time to time. Serious complications are very rare.
