These are benign changes made from connective tissue which present an aesthetic issue. Sometimes they can bleed if for example accidentally scratched by hand. People usually connect them with wearing necklaces or think they are viral warts which spread. All of this is wrong; nor are they warts nor viral nor does wearing jewelery have anything to do with it. There isn't a human being without at least several fibromas.
Their number and size grows with age. The cause is not known but genetics and weight are crucial factors in their development. Their number varies from a few to couple of hundreds. In average they are 1 to 3mm to several centimeters large. Usually they are located on the neck, in the armpits, beneath ones breasts or on ones abdomen or hands. Laser treatment is a method of choice because it gives best results. The treatment itself is painless and not unpleasant. The laser mechanically destroys the fibroma and completely removes it. A minor scab remains after the treatment and falls off after 5 to 7 days and should be treated with an antibiotic cream. It is advised to avoid sweating or greater physical activity 1 to 2 days after the treatment. Only one treatment is needed unless a larger number or surface of fibroma is to be treated, then it is necessarily to repeat the treatment.
The laser cuts the root of the fibroma with optical energy or destroys it mechanically. The treatment tingles a bit but there is no pain or unpleasantness. One treatment is needed unless there is a larger number or a bigger surface that should be treated. The affected area should be treated with cream after the laser. There are no scars only minor temporary redness.
Everything is identical as with the erbium laser only the treatment can tingle a bit more.
