Answer

Carbon dioxide laser vaporization is typically used for treatment of refractory HPV disease or extensive warts of the anogenital-mucosal category and is particularly useful in the treatment of periurethral and vaginal warts and vaginal SILs. It is the treatment of choice for pregnant women with extensive lesions or lesions that do not respond to TCA.
