Is co2 laser skin resurfacing safe for the genital and breast areas? I'm a 28-year-old model and was wondering whether co2 laser is safe for smoothing skin in the genital and breast areas (like skin tags). .

In brief: Safer

Methods for skin tags include excision, and electrodessication.
They are cheaper, safer and easier.

In brief: CO2

Co2 laser can be used to remove skin tags, but it can be done quickly, cheaply and easily by simply snipping them off under a local anaesthetic.
It shouldn't leave any scarring at all.
