Pre-cancerous Lesions

Thank you for your question. Yes, if done correctly to target the lesions, and not just treat a small percentage of them. I hope this helps!

CO2 resurfacing can be used to treat pre-cancerous lesions

Laser resurfacing of the skin can be used to treat precancerous and in some cases cancerous lesions if done appropriately. It is not usually first-line treatment but can be a very effective modality for treating numerous lesions on the face.

I hope my answer was helpful. Wish you the best!
