View Full Version : Cutaneous (Discoid) Lupus and CO2 laser

Hello, does anyone have any experience with having Cutaneous Lupus and getting CO2 laser treatments? I would like to improve the look of my aging skin but am worried about possible scarring or not healing well. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Christie

There is actually information on the Lupus Association website about this. I will post the link and you will find this question at the bottom of the page.

as with all things Lupus related it is very individual. For some people it seems to work well (of the right doctor is doing it) and for others it can cause harm. You would need to go to someone that specializes in Lupus and/or AI issues to see if you are a candidate. There is a screening process that is done to make sure it won't cause you more issues.

Hope this helps
