Is laser skin surgery safe? I have a flat mole on my face and I just wanted to know if it is a safe procedure? Thanks!

All surgical procedures carry some degree of
risk. With the new CO2 laser surgery, the risk of scarring is quite low. Common
side-effects may include crusting, mild swelling, redness or brown
discoloration at the treatment site. Some patients may require bleaching creams
to help regulate skin color following laser resurfacing. Significant pain,
bleeding, swelling and infection seldom occur and can be minimized byproper surgical techniques and vigorous postoperative care.
