Yes, but recurrence can be seen with lasers

Best method is excision. Lasers can help, but the recurrence rate is high. Why? Because the abnormal cells track down the hair follicle, out of reach of lasers. The solution is surgery. This way you do not need to worry about recurrence rates. All the bestDr Davin Lim Laser dermatologistBrisbane, Australia.
