Conization: The risk of preterm delivery is increased after a laser conization.

There is no test available that would tell in advance if the cervix regained full strength. ...Read more

Laser versus cauterty of facila spider veins... Which is safer? Will cautery cause scarring of my face? Does one hurt more than the other?

Laser versus cauterty of facila spider veins... Which is safer? Will cautery cause scarring of my face? Does one hurt more than the other?

Both are safe: Both laser and cautery work well to treat facial telangiectasias. When a large area of the face needs treatment, a laser is often easier and faster to do. When there are localized areas that need treatment, cautery is often more effective and is less likely to cause loss of pigment in the skin. It is helpful to use a topical numbing cream, so both treatments are more comfortable. ...Read more
