Effective Treatment for Fordyce Spots and Condyloma: Features and Applications of the Carbon Dioxide Laser


In recent years, the "carbon dioxide laser" has been widely used, from aesthetic clinics and dermatology treatments to industrial applications.

At our clinic, it's a treatment method used for the removal of penile Fordyce spots and condyloma, as well as moles on the face and body.

We will explain what this technology is and what effects can be expected.

What is a Carbon Dioxide Laser?

A carbon dioxide laser refers to laser light produced primarily from carbon dioxide.

It's an infrared laser with a wavelength of 10,600μm, which is readily absorbed by moisture.

Since the human body is largely composed of water, the carbon dioxide laser shows high energy absorption in body tissues.

Due to the 10,600μm infrared range of the carbon dioxide laser, it penetrates deep into human skin with minimal invasiveness, enhancing its value in aesthetics and medicine.

Features and Benefits of Carbon Dioxide Laser

  • High Precision: Because it emits a fine beam, it can precisely target and treat specific areas.
  • Deep Penetration: Capable of reaching deep into the skin, making it applicable to various treatments.
  • Immediate Results: The recovery period after treatment is short, and effective results are often immediate.

Applications in Aesthetics and Medicine

  • Wrinkle and Sagging Improvement: Promotes collagen regeneration in the skin, achieving wrinkle and sagging improvement.
  • Atopic Dermatitis and Scar Treatment: Has an anti-inflammatory effect and aids in skin regeneration.
  • Wart and Blemish Removal: Targets specific areas to irradiate and remove unwanted tissue.
  • Tumor Excision: The carbon dioxide laser is also used in the medical field for skin tumor removal.

Application in Fordyce Spot & Condyloma Treatment

  • Precision: The laser can target and remove only the minute tumor tissue, minimizing damage to healthy tissues.
  • Minimal Bleeding: The laser coagulates blood vessels while excising, reducing bleeding.
  • Less Invasiveness: Compared to traditional surgeries, the incisions are smaller and shallower, reducing patient discomfort and recovery time.

Post-Treatment Progress

After Fordyce spot and condyloma removal, the irradiated area looks like a scab.

There won't be any significant bleeding, swelling, or pain.

Over 2-3 weeks, the skin will regenerate, eventually healing cleanly.

There are no specific post-treatment restrictions, but the treated area will be bandaged on the day of the procedure. You can bathe from the next day.


The carbon dioxide laser is increasingly being used in various fields due to its unique properties. It holds high expectations not just in aesthetics but also in the medical field.

However, due to the need for specialized knowledge and skills, it's crucial to choose a trustworthy clinic or facility.

Treatments for Fordyce spots and condyloma on the penis often finish within a few minutes.

If you have any concerning symptoms, please don't hesitate to consult us.
